Default Mach V stainless steel brake lines...anyone using them?

Guys,

Anyone have experience with these;

http://www.fastwrx.com/teststbrlibl.html

PM'd Dan the other day and he doesn't have COATED Goodbridge lines but mentioned these. Wanted to know what you all thought about them. I don't know a whole lot about lines but Goodbrige is the name I always hear first.

Thanks,

-James

From what I gather, Goodridge are just okay for SS braided lines. I ordered them for my Miata (still not installed) and was told to get different ones. I had fitment issues w/ the Goodridge on my MR2 turbo.

I have them, and I'm perfectly happy with them. I like that they are coated, they are cheaper, and the little mounting point that attaches to the strut is moveable so that you can adjust the line to clear the wheel.

That's good to know. I think that was an issue on the Goodridge Miata lines.

Those look pretty sweet! Very good to have them coated/covered as well for protection.

I didn't know they sold those...are they new?

Awesome...i'm buying them today or tomorrow now. How much fluid do I need to get in order to upgrade the brakes?

Anyway as long as they're DOT certified I can't see you having any problems.

When I swapped mine I think we only used one tin worth of fluid but it's best to buy a spare just in case. Mach V has, IIRC, both Super Blue and its gold equivalent.

Both Goodridge and our lines are DOT compliant. Goodridge uses a different sleeve at the hose/fitting union, which doesn't allow for coating of the line. (That's my understaning.) Our lines are coated, which I think is nicer because it protects both the hose and anything else on the car that the hose should come into contact with. (Braided stainless is EXTREMELY abrasive when it vibrates against another surface.)

You'll need about a liter of fluid for a complete brake flush. Just like ButtDyno, I like to have a container in reserve in case I spill, or leave a fitting off, or whatever. We stock ATE Super Blue, Motul DOT 5.1 and Motul RBF600

Remember not to use fluid that has been open for any length of time, since it will have taken on moisture and will not perform like new.

Just an FYI...coated Goodridge lines do exist. We have them on the wagon.

Back to your regularly scheduled thread...
