The Brake Caliper Dust Boots on My S550 Mustang Melted On Track

These things are going to happen and Kenny explains why in this tech video. The truth is you don't need the piston boots on a track car, but if you're driving on the street as well, you will need to do a little more maintenance. Dust boots on the caliper pistons reduce the potential for debris build-up, but they won't hold up to high temps on track.
