We hear this all the time at the track "My brakes are getting hot and I'm getting a spongy pedal" Did you ever wonder how hot are they really getting? All brake pads are designed to work in a particular temperature range. A low temp pad operated at to high of temp transfers pad material to the rotor resulting in what most people call a warped rotor. A high temp pad never getting to its operating temperature and the car just doesn't want to stop no matter how hard you stand on the brakes. So don't guess your brake temperature KNOW THEM. Use a temerature disc paint to know your temperatures.
