Message and good for cars that arent driven much since it hardly absorbs water and thus rarely needs to be changed.

However, its somewhat expensive and tends to entrap microscopic air bubbles, so it is not good for high altitude environments and can be difficult to bleed the system (may take several tries with allowing bubbles to settle in-between).

Silicone also tends to be more compressible than traditional Dot 3/4 fluids, so not good for racing.
