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

Will these shims cause or prevent brake squeal?

These shims are a racing product, their purpose is not to prevent squeal.  Typically anti-squeal shims provide a spring material that actually increases sponginess and reduces brake feel.  Our product is made from a hardened alloy that maintains a rock solid feel for your brake pedal.  That being said, some people report that the shims do actually reduce squeal, probably by increasing the snugness of the fit in the caliper.  We also recommend our high performance brake lubricant/quiet to help preserve and maintain your brake components and to reduce any potential squealing.
