What about brake fluid which is said to be incompressible. When I push down the brake pedal, the master cylindre pushes the brake liquid inside the hoses which tightens the brakes immediately? So what is the speed of propagation in this scenario if it cannot be faster than c even though brake fluid seems incompressible?
