Girodisc Front Titanium Pad Shields | 2008-2015 Mitsubishi Evo X (TS-1001)
Girodisc Front Titanium Pad Shields
The problem of brake fluid boiling is simply traced to heat transferring from the rotors and pads directly into the fluid through the caliper pistons. When brake fluid boils, it releases air that is normally part of the molecular structure of the fluid. This air is compressible of course, and the brake pedal goes to the floor instead of moving the caliper pistons. Production cars tend to suffer from this on track days more as they don't usually have the extensive cooling duct and exotic brake materials as true racing cars. True racing only brake calipers generally come with titanium caliper pistons for one reason. Titanium as a material, has low thermal conductivity. This means that it is very bad at transferring heat. Which is good if you are trying to keep your fluid cool.
The Girodisc solution to help prevent fluid boiling is to use a thin titanium shim placed between the pad back and the pistons, to keep the braking heat from transferring into the pistons and fluid. For cars that are going to see hard or multiple track days, these shims are cheap protection from loosing the pedal due to boiling at the wrong time and making the day very expensive.

Good fitment seam to work well
Actually bought these to fit Brembo 4 piston calipers on 2014 Audi S4.
Calipers are originally for Porsche Macan and Q5 with same calipers.
We'll made product, looking forward to using them with improved cooling and higher quality brake fluid
So according to my research these Girodisc Titanium pieces will help descipate heat faster in return prevents your brake fluid from boiling and cools your brakes faster and prevent lock. You’ll benefit a lot specially when you take your Evo for a spirited runs. Good quality titanium pieces. I got front and rear pieces for my Evo X.
Fitment was perfect for my Evo X
Figment is perfect haven’t test them yet. Hopefully when car is ready will test them out
