Track Wisdom

"Fluid fade... happens when the temperature of the caliper cylinder (or the piston) reaches the boiling point of the brake fluid and tiny bubbles of compressible gas form in and are diffused through the previously incompressible brake fluid. The pedal then goes to the floor, giving rise to frantic pumping of both the brake pedal and the driver's heart[...] Basically, if the pedal goes all soft and horrible you [...] have boiled the brake fluid. The only cure is to either upgrade the fluid or keep it cooler. This can be achieved either by increasing the cooling to the caliper or by insulating the caliper pistons."

-- Carroll Smith, Engineer to Win

Will these fit with new pads?

Yes! Our shims are designed to be thin enough that they will fit with even new pads (roughly 0.5mm). You may find it necessary to break in the new pads with a bedding procedure before the shims will fit.

As your pads wear down, you can "stack" our shims to make up for lost brake material. This will actually decrease the amount of heat that gets to your brake fluids as your pads wear down.
