So what is heat management and why is it so important?
Heat Management can drastically improve the performance and longevity of vital automotive components. Whether your car is used for an occasional track day or a full race calendar, the benefits of heat management can sometimes be overlooked.
Heat is vital in some components in order for them to work as intended, for example, the engine, gearbox and brakes, though apply too much heat to these components and performance losses or permanent damage can occur.
The same can be said for components that are intended to work at cooler temperatures. Intake pipework, for example, needs to remain cool for the engine to operate at its best. There is no point in fitting a top quality expensive intercooler or charge cooler to your car unless you have made sure all the pipework connected to it stays as cool as possible at all times – even after many laps of a circuit on a summers day. Heat may also cause issues to other sensitive areas of the car such as paint and body work. Heat management can be used to prevent the replacement or repairs of paint and body work due to excessive heat exposure.
