Do a burnout with it and see.
Be careful, just find a good spot of concrete somewhere and try it, not at the track.

Everyone should know burnouts at your house are not the same as at the track. If it looks good and feels good save the 600 bucks and hit a T&T to try it out. I would bet it is just fine, dont know for sure, but hell it is just rubber.

Over time, brake fluid will break down the rubber. If exposed for a short period of time, the may be ok. Just keep an eye on the rubber. The brutha's used to use it as tire shine back in the day. Eventually it would eat the sidewall off but it looked good for a while!

A trick was to soak old polyglass tires in diesel overnight.

Oh sure...It's OK to kill us career test & tuners with defective equipment, as long as no real racers are harmed

Actually this is incorrect. Brake fluid does not brake down rubber. Otherwise it wouldn't be good in brake systems. Petrolium based products will break down rubber, but brake fluid is not petrolium based.
