Kit’s Thoughts: 

Enough with all the facts and test between steel braided brake lines and rubber hose brake lines. If you never gota a chance to use stainless steel braided lines, it’s a must that you switch out your old rubber brake hose and try it. I can tell you one thing from my personal experience, you can feel a night a day difference. It’s no gimmick, I can say you can feel at least a %15 increase on your braking performance in any kind of weather or terrain.
