Dot3, Dot4, Dot5.1

Anyone have strong feelings about brake fluids? I have to empty my master cyclinder to replace the emergency cable and will be flushing the system. What fluids are you using?

I wonder if they would buy back my Tristar. I am very dissatified with the surf wake. I don't know what they were thinking! Of course, I would want it bought back with 2014 dollars!
