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."

Key to Enduro Victory

Team Sahlen competes in Long Endurance Races. These are not your ordinary 90 minute enduros. No,were talking long, long races, 9 to 14 hours long, with even some of those events being 24 hours long. When a race is this long, you can’t take a chance that you would run out of brakes. This is why Team Sahlen utilizes the Titanium Brake Backing Plates made by HARD BRAKES. Team Sahlen Driver Will Nonnamaker shared his thoughts “We recently secured the overall victory at the American Endurance Racing 9 hours at Watkins Glen International with our Porsche Caymans. Watkins Glen is known for being a track hard on brakes. But throughout the race, we had a solid brake pedal, with no fade. And even at the end, we were still driving hard into the turns. I strongly believe this is due to our utilizing the HARD BRAKES heat shields to prevent heat transfer during the grueling 9 hours.
