Anybody using Titanium Brake Pad Shims / Heat Shields?

Just wondering if anybody is running these with their Brembo brakes.


Prevents brake fade caused by boiling the brake fluid, by reducing the amount of heat transfered from the rotor and pades to the caliper and fluid.

Allows the braking system to be pushed farther/harder while preventing brake fluid boiling.

You will get spongy brakes. Do you road race a lot? Otherwise the whole exercise is one of futility.

I use them and like them. I also put in the Stainless Steel pistons from Racing Brake.

But as stated if you are not road racing there really is no point for them on the street.

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.
