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

How much heat do these brake heat shields block?

One picture is worth a thousand words in this case. Take a look at this shim from one of our test racers after a hard session at the track. The pictures show that our titanium brake backing plate can prevent scorching heat from passing through the shim in track conditions.  Want more information?  Check out our controlled laboratory test results that show a reduction in temperatures at the caliper piston/pad interface of over 140F degrees!  Also check out our track testimonials to learn about real world results from our customers and test drivers from the race track.  Some of our customers report that our brake heat shields have completely eliminated their brake fade problems caused by overheating brake fluid, while others have found them to be an effective cooling element used in combination with brake ducts and other techniques.  While our heat shields do not provide 100% protection in all extreme cases, they can make a critical difference in many situations.  That advantage can be the difference between keeping your car on the track or visiting the run-off area.
