    Why use brake cooling

    Cooling of the brakes is essential - particularly on 'heavy braking' circuits or events. The heat generated during braking is stored in the discs and must be dissipated by air-flow through and around the disc. Failure to do this will result in reducing brake efficiency and in the extreme, increasing brake pedal travel

    Why bleed your brakes

    BLEEDING Whilst there is some 'mystery' about this, it is basically a simple operation. The objective is to ensure that all air is purged out of the system(s) so that only good, fresh brake fluid is in the calipers, master...

    Advantage! Alcon Crescent Grooved Rotors

    When compared with a disc with plain faces, a grooved disc will produce greater pad wear and will also be noisier.  When compared with a cross-drilled disc, initial bite will be similar without the thermal stress associated with a drilled disc. Noise will be of a similar level.

    The myth of warped brake discs

    Have you ever heard someone say they had warped brake discs?  Typically someone had the discs resurfaced to cure the problem and after a relatively short time the roughness or vibration came back. In almost every case, this problem is not caused by a warped discs, but that the brake pad...

    Using brake temperature paint

    Controlling brake rotor temperatures is the easiest way to improve lap times, by allowing the brake pads and rotors to operate in their optimal temperature range, therefore increasing the frictional coefficient
