Anyone know the spec's for the stock brake fluid?

Like the dry and wet boiling points?
Just wondering how it stands up against the other fluids out there. Thanks.

DOT 4. That's it.

Assume it meets the minimum spec for DOT 4, and read up on that. It might be better than that, but there's no guarantee.

It looks like the other options out there are considerably better.
