    Re: ti brake shields

    Someone here used them on track, possibly bigjim. I assume you mean Ti shims to help stop the heat transfer between brake pad and caliper and lessen fade.
    I believe the thickness will depend on the pad and the slack inbetween. Some brands utilize as much material as possible. Thicker/newer pads would utilize the thinner and less thick or even used pads would use the thicker version.

    hardbrakes.com, tispeed and girodisc all have some that fit (I'd check with Luke to see if he can get the girodisc at a good price)

    Yes I meant shims, sorry wrong terminology. I'm thinking maybe 1mm up front and .5mm in the rear might be sufficient for good heat dissipation.

    Re: ti brake shields

    I have some for the fronts, although I can't recall where I got them. I think they're probably 0.5mm, but they may be 1mm. As Junior1 said, new pads are going to make a thick shim impossible to fit, so I don't think I'd go any thicker than 1mm.

    Now that I've installed the V2 brakes, I won't be needing the V1 shims anymore. Right now they're in my household goods shipment, so I won't have them until I find a new place to live and get all my stuff delivered and unpacked. In the next few weeks I should have them.

    I bought them used (new in the bag?...didn't appear to be used) from lunarx in the classifieds.

    Search the PN online and a bunch if Stoptech retailers pop up. I'm not sure if Stoptech are any better than what Hard Brake sells for less.
