Oh, Hel. I thought you mean "from hell" in that they suck.I do not know about track pads as of yet. But I do know of stainless steel lines from hell
Auto Specialists - Fiesta Mk7/7.5 Brake lines in 12 different colours to match your car (including ST180)
Some say the Braided SS lines are less apt to stretch or bulge under hard braking and don;t fatigue over the life of the can keeping the brake pedal more firm feeling and easier to modulate .. Plus they look cool ...I've never had the Stainless Steel brake lines on a car - had the pads but what's the benefits of the lines - just show?
That's pretty much it.Some say the Braided SS lines are less apt to stretch or bulge under hard braking and don;t fatigue over the life of the can keeping the brake pedal more firm feeling and easier to modulate .. Plus they look cool ...
I had some Porsche brake cooling diverters installed on my SVT Focus in 2007. They were welded to the LCA. They worked well and never caused any of the feared side effects (Porsche does use them, after all). For some reason, this site does not like my (ancient) shutterfly image locations. So here is a link to the forum thread discussing the Posrche wings:I have had SS lines on dozens of cars and many with ABS but holding off on this car for now.
I will be making some sort of ducting for air to the front rotors as I am very hard on brakes and believe that will be more than enough for my track days, with good pads of course, if not then front BBK will have to be sourced.
Pads, If none can be found Carbotech will make you some, I needed some custom ones once for a fast TT car I had a caliper issue with and had to put on the stock front brakes. I had the pads in 3 days, ran several TT sessions and had no brake issues at all but I did have serious ducts to them.
