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."

Bending Tabs for Heat Shields (some models)

This video shows you how to install the TiSpeed brake shims that use bent tabs to hold them in place. Most of our heat shields simply hang off the caliper pins and require no tools for installation beyond what is required for a simple brake pad change. However some of our heat shields make use of tabs to be bent in place by the customer for maximum hold on the brake pad. This 5 minute video walks you through the simple process, which will take ~10 minutes to complete.

We recommend using an old brake pad for shaping the shim tabs over. This will free you from having to protect the surface of the pad, and allow you to torch and bang away without worrying about excessive heat or overly enthusiastic hammering. :) However, if you are reasonably careful the shaping can be done over new pads with no problems.
