  • What color to paint brakes?

    I'm wondering what color to paint my front Brake calipers,
    Based on this image, if I paint them red I'll make +25kw (33.5hp) which is pretty impressive for a can of red paint.


    But according to this video:



    Painting my brakes black would allow them to heat up and cool down quicker. Thus allowing me to stop quicker.

    So the question is More Power or better stopping distance? Which would you choose?

      Better stopping always wins! Think about all the very late braking you'll be able to do....

        Red: 1
        Black: 1

        Can one effect the brake bias by painting the calipers different colors?

        So if the Fronts are red and the rears are Black the Braking is more rear bias?

          I'm not sure if you're trolling or serious about this. Do you expect to be doing a lot of trackdays? Then you might be better off with something that cools better, allthough I think the difference between red and black cooling wise will be marginal at best.

          For street use, go for what looks good.
