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

Can these stop my calipers from changing color?

Many stock rotors these days are painted with a temperature sensitive paint that changes colors when they are exposed to excessive brake heat. We do not know why manufacturers do this, but we suspect that they want to provide a way for the dealership service department to determine if a car has been "tracked" and should have the warranty voided. We first noticed this issue on a Volvo S60R with Brembo brake calipers: the new calipers were a brownish bronze with white lettering, but when tracked hard the color would turn goldish with red lettering. This color change seems likely to raise flags at your service department!

Our titanium brake heat shields have been proven in some cases to eliminate this problem for calipers with temperature sensitive paint, however we cannot guarantee that it will work in all cases.  Give it a try, and take advantage of our money back guarantee if they do not work for you.  If you occasionally track your car which is under warranty, this is quick and simple insurance to help your car maintain its stock appearance.
