Overheating brakes

So I've been tracking at least 2 times per month for the last year and have increasingly built up speed but now have overheated and thus destroyed 2 front OEM calipers. I'm curious to see if people have had similar problems. I'm looking now to upgrade to a BBK.

You need more airflow to the rotors and calipers.


Maybe a longer cool-off lap too.

All my issues with the OEM brakes on track went away when I upgraded to a Stoptech Trophy BBK.
