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

Titanium brake shims vs big brake kit upgrade.

If you are tracking a street car with stock brakes, you may be experiencing that the brakes are not up to the job for stopping your car lap after hot lap. An expensive option for your car is to upgrade to an aftermarket big brake kit (BBK). While this may be the ultimate upgrade for many serious racers, there are a few drawbacks to consider.
  • Cost. Our titanium brake heat shields, racing brake pads and a bottle of racing brake fluid are a much cheaper alternative to a BBK upgrade that might just be enough for your needs.
  • Reversibility. If your car is under warranty, there is a good chance that the dealer will flag it for possible warranty rejection if they notice that you have upgraded the brakes to a track model. Our titanium brake shims can be removed in just a few minutes so that the dealer will never know about your upgrade.
  • Order of Upgrades. Unless you are sure that you need the full power of a racing brake kit, why not start with the cheaper options first? We usually recommend to start with an upgrade to racing brake fluid, followed by racing brake pads and titanium brake shims, then brake cooling ducts, and finally a full upgrade to the BBK if it is still needed.
  • Series Regulations. Many racing series require the use of stock brake calipers, for which a BBK upgrade is not an option.
