Track Wisdom

"The mark of a great racer is consistency. If you can consistently lap a track at the limit, with the lap times varying no more than 1/2 second, then you have a chance to be a winner. If your lap times vary more than that, no matter how fast some of them are, you won't win often."

-- Ross Bentley, Speed Secrets


Worked Great in Race Conditions

Worked Great in Race Conditions

With the Hard Brakes backing plates installed, we noticed overall improved braking performance in the H-Stock BMW 135i car immediately. With one of the heaviest and most powerful cars in BMW CCA Club Racing, brake performance is very important to us. Although our Hawk DTC-70 brake pads handle the heat quite well, we now have less fade, lower caliper temps, shorter braking distances, more driver confidence and the pads last longer.

We tried the Hard Brakes titanium backing plates and saw much lower caliper temps from session to session which helped eliminate late session brake fade. With tempilaq paint we were seeing between 1000 and 1200 degrees on the backing plate - not rotor - backing plate!

[Ed. Note: This testimonial refers to the D1371 model of our titanium brake heat shield for the BMW 135i. The 135i has a well known issue with brakes overheating, due to it being a powerful yet heavy car that sees frequent track time.]
