Track Wisdom

"Very high [brake] temperatures can also cause the brake fluid to boil with a resultant increase in pedal travel. This should be detected immediately by the driver, as a very small quantity of boiling fluid is enough for the pedal to go right to the floor without any effect; in contrast to the liquid brake fluid, the boiling part is compressible. It is particularly important that when the car has been stopped for a short time -- up to 15 or 20 minutes after a drive in which the brakes have become very hot -- the pedal is depressed for a check. When the car is at rest, brakes act as a heat sink from which heat spreads to the fluid contained in the calipers; brakes which were fully operative when the car was driven may have become totally inefficient after it has stood awhile."

-- Paul Frere, Sports Car and Competition Driving

What race teams use titanium for racing brakes?

Titanium is expensive, but also in high demand in racing applications, for a reason. In professional racing circles it is widely used as a principle component for managing brake heat.  The light weight, structural integrity and minimal thermal conductivity of titanium alloy make it ideal for use at the highest levels of racing including the top stock car, and open wheel racing series such as NASCAR and Formula One racing. 

World class brake caliper manufacturers such as Brembo, already make use of Titanium inserts in many of their high-end brake caliper sets. And a growing collection of aftermarket caliper manufacturers include our brake heat shields in their big brake upgrade kits.

Hard Brakes brings you the racing advantages enjoyed by top professional teams in an inexpensive and easy to install solution that requires no significant modifications to your car or budget. Our product is used by racers all around the globe in a huge range of racing series.
