Patented Brake Disc Bedding / Burnishing
"I had a vibration" is something you never want to hear from your driver. The root of the problem is typically the brakes, tires, or suspension, but is often tough to isolate. A simple and inexpensive preparation step can often eliminate the brakes as a potential culprit, and you won’t have to cringe so much when the driver is on the radio screaming about the dreaded thump, thump, thump he’s feeling.
If your rotors aren’t being properly prepared for driver abuse by experienced technicians, you’re not only leaving performance on the table, you’re exposing yourself to potential judder, vibration, and rotor cracking issues.
You’re also wasting time and money. Track time is expensive. The more time your driver spends behind the wheel performing an elaborate pad and rotor break-in procedure, the less time you’ll spend gathering real data and preparing for the race.
Finally, your driver will be frustrated. He’ll be ready to fire off some hot laps, and you’ll be telling him to take it easy and cool his brakes, putting your team members at odds.
These are all serious and costly problems that can quickly turn a potential win into a very long weekend for the entire team. Fortunately, this scenario can be avoided.
