Is it worth getting on a 1.4 corsa with goodridge break hoses or will it cause the main cylinder to fluck up? or should i stick with super 4dot?

4 dot is fine, goodridge hoses wont do any damage, will improve pedal feel.

5.1 DOT is based on 4 DOT fluid, rather confusing really, cause 5DOT fluid is completely different stuff.
Yeah it'f fine to use, but it does mean it needs changing more regularly because of it's increase hydroscopicness.

Its ogt a igher boiling piont therefore is designed with track use in mind - in a Corsa you won't really see the difference from Dot 4.
