comment Is it necessary to bleed brakes if the system is never opened?
This may warrant a separate question, but for passenger vehicles, will the latest DOT suffice, or should I look up the specific DOT for my vehicle?

comment Capacitors for cars
@KeeganMcCarthy I'm just presenting both sides of the debate, I don't necessarily agree with that side. It's an extreme view anyway. You're right, it doesn't use energy, it only stores it. However, the theory is that if the alternator can't supply enough current, the cap will dissipate more and more, and have to be recharged, which will tax the alternator. But, you needn't worry about that for our system :-)

@R.. Given the nature of Wikipedia I wouldn't doubt it. Perhaps this is a +1 for the return of Encyclopedia Britannica?

lol are you sure it's not just your Honda Fit? Asking b/c Wikipedia says Response times are improved for drive by wire systems through elimination of mechanical linkages.
