Video will not tell you the temp your brakes reach or anything about what the issue is inside the caliper. It will be handing GM proof of tracking your car in case they want to be dicks and feel like voiding the warranty.

Buy temp strips or an IR gun if you want the temp. Although tracking your car with an ongoing brake leak you don't know the root cause of is another issue entirely.

I totally agree,but with the video of Al saying this is "a track car"and my service manager saying "this is marketed as a track car"how can they weasel themselves out of what they made?

Dealer=weasel
Al's statement have no basis in law or warranty claims. And the warranty on the car can be voided for track use. They specifically add those clauses to it. Even if your dealer is cool upchanneling this to GM means his opinion no longer matters once a warranty decision has been made.

The New Vehicle Limited Warranty does not cover damage caused as the result of any of the following:
-Collision, fire, theft, freezing, vandalism, riot, explosion,
or objects striking the vehicle.
-Misuse of the vehicle such as driving over curbs, overloading, racing, or other competition.

Some people will argue that a track day is not a race but in reality it comes down to how much of a prick the warranty claim decision maker is.

Rockrau is correct. Don't use thread sealant in on the brake system. If even a tiny bit gets into the lines, it could mess up a lot of things,

The minor bit of leakage is normal after a track session. The brake fluid is boiling and seeping out of the threads. I wipe down the calipers after a track day and it never leaks out during normal street driving.

I got a call from my service manager yesterday. I talked to my service manager a couple weeks ago,and he sent this pic into his contacts at GM. Long story short, they ordered me new calipers,and GM wants these back,they seem to be taking this seriously.
