A wheel chalk may not sound very exciting but a simple wheel chalk is very handy. Our Viper logo wheel chalk made out of indestructible plastic serves two purposes.
- Keeps the car from rolling when not using the handbrake in the pits.
- Keeps the brakes from heat soaking when car is cooling down and cools brakes faster after a run.
No. 2 is the most important. When you pull off the track into the pits, your brake temps are still extremely hot. Stopping and sitting with your foot on the brake pedal will cause the calipers and brake pads to heat soak quickly. A simple and effective solution is a wheel chalk; it keeps your foot off the brake pedal and brake pads with minimal contact to the rotor, pads and caliper, which results in faster cooling.
