Stainless Steel Brake Lines

Worth it for DD and the occasional Autocross?

Mainly worried about having to check my lines more often for cracks and dirt issues.

I run them and never check them and have never had a problem lol.

There is no downside so far as I know other than it being Illegal to run them technically.

Just make sure they aren't rubbing up against anything.

Berz out.

Awesome how a Goodridge and Russell ad appears on the post. I will be installing a set this Saturday. Will update on any dirt issues if any.

Yea I've never heard of dirt and cracking being an issue and it's illegal because your replacing them with NON DOT approved lines most times.

If you grab the teflon coated lines- you should be fine in regards to the dirt (dirt in the braids). After some research on Honda-tech, I went ahead with them.

The general consensus being: If you keep up with servicing and maintenance- not a big deal.

For $100, I don't think I will be kicking myself. And yes, you can find many DOT approved lines. Not too sure about ebay stuff.

What car are these for?

It will help in auto-x btw. Less pedal force will be absorbed into factory rubber lines expanding.
