Alright guys, im just currently doing my brakes and want to change the brake hoses for some stainless ones, the problem im having is working out weather all the swift brake hoses are the same ?? mine was originally a 1.0 gls and unsure if it has the gls hoses on, it has gti calipers, so im unsure weather the gti stainless hoses would they be direct replacement ? weather mines gls or gti ??

My Justy and Australian barina (swify) all shared the same fittings.
Based on this Ill say suzuki had one set of brake lines for all their similar cars.
I just put goodridge GTi onto my Justy and fitted fine.

cheers,

How long are the sessions?
If they are relatively short on a low braking use circuit Id use standard dot 4 or 5, cheap, easy to get and can be replaced easily. usually new 4 or 5 fluid will perform better than old racing fluid like ap or castrol etc when wet vs dry boiling ratings are compared.
If your chasing lap times in a competietive scenario use the best. I use go castrol SRF in the escort, 40 odd pounds a bottle, and replace it after every! event, expensive but necessary. If its for fun use standard cheap stuff and replace it after every event. Cheap brake insurance.
I dont believe you should be driving hard enough at a trackday, possibly with passengers to worry a GTi brake system in good condition.
If you are going to go for full on performance fluids make sure the rubbers in the braking system are rated to handle the fluid, some brake fluids soften the seals etc (not sure if this is still an issue today, was a few years ago)
