Re: Braided brake lines
braided lines are there so the rubber doesnt expand under the heat of the brakes and break fluid. with std rubber lines and you put enough heat into them you fill find that the peddal will feel spongier and spongier over time, just like blowing up a baloon.
if you are serious about some racing (especially track) theya re worth while egtting, on teh road with teh light braking here and there, they are just for bling factor.
it will not imporve you brakes, like a bolt on part, just keeps the lines from expanding under heat
