Stronger brakes under hot conditions. Yours brake will perform better when in
hot weather, when track driving, driving in the mountains or when towing if you
upgrade and refresh your brake fluid to DOT5.1.
Increased safety. Your brakes will have more power to stop the car when they
are hot versus old brake fluid and versus DOT4 brake fluid
If you overheat your brakes and you find the pedal goes soft when you are driving on the track or on the road then you should change your brake fluid. The pedal has gone soft because the brake fluid has partially boiled. Once brake fluid has boiled it will never recover, it will never have the same positive feel as it did before. To regain a nice strong brake pedal the fluid needs to be changed for new fluid.
When changing fluid, to get the best result, all of the old fluid should be flushed out of the system. If the brake fluid is simply topped up on top of the old fluid the old fluid will contaminate the new fluid and you will not get the full benefit of having new brake fluid. It can take time to flush out the system of all the old brake fluid but it is worth the effort.
If it has been a year or two since your brake fluid was changed or if you feel your brake pedal does not feel as strong as it did when the car was new, you will probably feel a big improvement if you refresh your braking system with new brake fluid.
Goodridge brake hoses will also help give your car stronger brakes

Q: My car manual recommends DOT4, why should I fit DOT5.1?
A: As with most standard parts they are not built to take the punishment of
advanced drivers. By fitting non-performance focussed parts the car manufacturer
can save money. A driver who is prepared to spend a bit extra can increase the
performance capabilities of his or her car. By upgrading to DOT5.1 brake fluid
you are increasing the braking power of your car's brakes by increasing the heat
capacity of the brake system
-If your brake pedal is soft but the fluid is new - the pedal has gone soft
because the brake fluid has partially boiled under hard driving
-If you want the best brake fluid available but you do not want to have to
change the brake fluid more regularly than normal, like you would have to with a
racing brake fluid
