Castrol SRF in sub-zero temp.

For those of you who have this brake fluid, have any of you had brake problems in winter when it gets really cold?

I've got it in my car and through this winter with many sub zero F days I've had no issues at all.

Has anybody else ever had issues using "other" high temp brake fluids such as ate blue or rbf600 in the winter? I heard somewhere that its not a good idea to use rbf600 in the winter. Anybody care to comment.

I run SRF and our temps have hit -30 and colder at times.
No issues
