Use a brake pad that’s made for high heat
When thinking about performance, we tend to focus on speed, ignoring another pretty important function -- being able to stop. The factory brake pads on your car are perfectly fine for average driving, but if you’re pushing the engine, you’re going to want to shell out for a performance brake pad that can handle the higher heat under the hood. They are normally made out of semi-metallic materials or ceramic and, unlike the organic material brakes that come standard on most cars, they minimize heat build up, and give you a firmer feel when you hit the brake. And, if you want to see how super cars (and rather skilled drivers) amp up their performance under extreme pressure, check out these videos.
