Girodisc Front Titanium Shields & shims
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. Here is a comparison of materials and their relative thermal conductivity ratings:

Titanium 6AL-4V 6.7 W/mk Steel 52 W/mk Aluminum 130 W/mk

You can see that Titanium will transfer far less heat than steel and especially aluminum. 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.

Water jet cut to exact size, no cutting, grinding, or swearing involved.

Price is per axle (four pieces)

Girodisc Rear Anti-nose Shields & Shims
Sometimes you try everything known to man to quiet down a set of brake pads but to no avail. Stubborn brake pad noise can require the addition of noise abatement shims to help quiet them down. These shims utilize the exact material used by many OEM's to absorb vibration and dampen noise.

These shims have a highly slippery face and tabs on the edges to hold the shim in place during installation and use. These can be a great help in providing noise free braking. NOT intended to quiet down race pads driven on the street!

Girodisc Rear Raybestos Brake Pads
Raybestos ST-43 are our favorite intermediate track pad. Very aggressive pad, yet easy on the rotors. They are down slightly on overall friction and initial bite from the most aggressive offerings, with the flipside being lower running temps and increased component life. Make no mistake, these pads are the real deal. We have customers running them in Ferrari Challenge cars, Evo's, STi's, Vipers, Corvettes and more. If you rely on ABS, these pads will be more forgiving with their initial bite.

When you read the factory literature for these pads, they downplay them a bit as being not very aggressive. When you consider these are developed for Nascar (read heavy, high-horsepower, lots of tire and downforce), "Intermediate" means "Full Boogie" in a 350-400hp amateur driven sports cars.

These have been tested by countless customers and given the universal thumbs up for overall performance and satisfaction. Run what the winners run!

Radium Engineering Fuel Surge Tank Install Kit - EVO X
This comprehensive installation kit includes everything needed to install a Radium Engineering single pump Walbro, AEM, Aeromotive, Deatchwerks, or Bosch equipped fuel surge tank (FST) in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X. All Radium FSTs are CNC machined from aluminum. They are fully anodized and use PTFE insulated wiring, submersible hose, etc. to make them alcohol (ethanol/methanol/E85) compliant. The Mitsubishi Evolution X install kit locates the FST in a collision-safe area, centered behind the rear seat but in front of the plastic paneling in the trunk (shown below) This allows 100% of useable trunk space as the panel goes back on after the install. The powder coated aluminum bracket secures to OEM mounting bosses so no drilling or cutting is necessary. Furthermore, the OEM battery and windshield washer fluid bottle are retained and do not need to be relocated. Also included are wiring components with flying leads featuring a weatherproof fuse and relay to drive the FST's fuel pump. Wiring is very simple and takes less than 30 minutes to assemble. No soldering is required Included are 4 PTFE hoses which are cut to length and preassembled. PTFE hose is perfect for all types of fuel, especially with high alcohol contents, such as ethanol (E85). Unlike standard rubber hose, PTFE is non-permeable and eliminates any possible fuel vapor smell in the vehicle. Radium PTFE hoses use anodized aluminum hose ends and are cut-to-length specifically for this application. The inner stainless steel braid resists extreme fuel pressures and is covered with black PVC which gives the hose added protection from debris and provides abrasion protection. Supplied in -6AN size only. The suppled -6AN hoses intergrate with the stock fuel lines, they do not completely replace all stock fuel lines. EVO X Install Kit Features: -Preassembled 3/8" (-6AN) PTFE Hoses -Powder Coated Mounting Bracket -AN and OEM Style Adapter Fittings -Stainless Steel Hardware -Wiring Components with Relay and Fuse -Installation Instructions TECH TIP: Fuel surge tank is sold separately. This is an install kit only. Fits: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Part # 20-0113
