DOT5 brake fluid won't MIX with 3 or 4. but it has the same compression rate as them so it will work with them in a pinch. there is a law that requires this.

there are several high boiling point brake fluids to use. motive and redline pop into my mind right now, i am sure there are a lot of other brands available. the thing to keep in mind is the higher boiling point fluids attract moisture at higher rates than lower boiling point fluids.
if you plan on driving hard and liberally use your brakes enough to need high boiling point fluids. i would suggest regular brake flushing with a pressur bleeder. with the proper tools a brake flush can be done in a very short time.
