One complete axle set (4 heat shields) to outfit both front calipers.
Protect your calipers and keep your brake fluid from overheating with this set of 6AL-4V titanium alloy heat shields designed specifically for VMS Motorsports for the Legends Wilwood caliper
VMS Motorsports also stocks all Wilwood and TBM/Brakeman pad compounds for Wilwood applications
Our titanium brake heat shields are a quick, inexpensive and guaranteed method for managing your brake heat. They fit between your brake pad and brake caliper pistons to form a thermal barrier that protects your caliper and fluid from excess heat.
The Proven benefits of our brake heat shields for you are:
•More consistent braking on the track. Our brake shims help prevent the loss of braking power that occurs when brake fluid starts to overheat or even boil, a phenomenon known as "brake fade" that can cause catastrophic and sudden brake failure. Hundreds of race drivers have verified for us that our heat shields allow them to stay out on the track longer and push their car to the limits harder than without them.
•Lower maintenance costs. Our heat shields have been proven to extend the life of your brake caliper components, including dust boots, caliper seals, piston surfaces and of course brake fluid. Why spend time and money repairing, rebuilding or replacing these when our simple product can reduce the maintenance intervals?
•Improved Safety. Racers need every advantage to push their car to the 10/10ths limit and be competitive. Our heat shields help protect you from dangerous and expensive off-road mishaps as you push the envelope of your car's capabilities.*
•Longer life for your brake pads. Top drivers know that as brake pads wear down they start to lose their "feel" because they transmit more heat to the brake fluids and because the caliper piston needs to travel further. Why throw away half-used pads when you can extend their life with our titanium heat shields to make up for the lost brake pad materials? For less than the cost of a single set of brake pads you can extend the life of all of your pads now and in the future.

These titanium brake shields have a small fraction of the thermal conductivity of steel or aluminum materials used for brake pads and calipers, and provide a critical thermal barrier between your glowing hot rotors and your precious hydraulic brake fluids. They give your track car the same proven brake heat mitigation materials used by major performance brake manufacturers like Brembo and top teams in Formula One and NASCAR, for a small fraction of the cost. We only use top-grade 6Al-4V titanium alloy for maximum thermal protection, structural integrity and corrosion resistance.
Our brake backing plates are precision engineered and machined to exacting specifications. Each shield is designed to provide maximum coverage of the brake pad surface, providing protection against both conduction and radiant heat transfer. They can be installed in minutes using the same tools you use to change your brake pads. Our shields have been track tested and proven on a wide range of race cars and tracks. This is inexpensive insurance to help protect you from possible brake failure and a costly repair bill, or worse.
All of our heat shields are made only from top grade 6AL-4V titanium alloy.
