AP Racing offers the perfect brake fluid for your car, regardless of whether you're chasing groceries or lap times.The AP formulations below have been refined over many years under the most arduous conditions encountered at the highest levels of motorsport.These fluids are some of the most popular used today in Formula 1, NASCAR Sprint Cup, WRC, ALMS, etc. All AP Racing Brake Fluids with the exception of R4 are compatible with all hydraulic brake systems designed to conform to S.A.E. J1703 requirements, which means they're just at home on the road as they are on the track.

Radi-CAL™ R4

R4 has been explicitly designed to perform better than any other product at the extremes of heavy duty braking performance, and is currently the fluid of choice at the elite level of motorsport. With the highest dry boiling point of any racing brake fluid currently available at 644°F, R4 stands alone.

Radi-CAL™ R3

‘Typical’ New Dry Boiling Point: 320°C (608°F)
‘Wet’ E.R. (Equilibrium Reflux) Boiling Point: 199°C (399°F)

Prior to the development of R4, R3 was the fluid of choice in many professional racing series around the world. Conforms to and exceeds FMVSS 116 DOT 4 and SAE J1703 and J1704.

Radi-CAL™ R2

‘Typical’ New Dry Boiling Point in excess of: 312°C (594°F)
‘Wet’ E.R. (Equilibrium Reflux) Boiling Point: 204°C (399°F)


R2 Brake Fluid is intended for competition use. Color variations may occur in R2 brake fluid due to its manufacturing process.This has no effect on the quality and performance of this product.

Radi-CAL™ R1

‘Typical’ New Dry Boiling Point: 269°C (516°F)
Minimum ‘Wet’ E.R. (Equilibrium Reflux) Boiling Point: 151°C (304°F)


R1 can be used for either competition or road use.

Factory R DOT 5.1

‘Typical’ New Dry Boiling Point: 269°C (516°F)
‘Wet’ E.R. (Equilibrium Reflux) Boiling Point: 187°C (369°F)


Ideal for High Performance Road Applications.

Notes: All AP Racing Brake Fluids are Polyalkalene Glycol Ether based and are not a silicone based fluid. AP Racing does not sell and does not recommend mixing a silicone based brake fluid with any of their fluids.
