Good advice after a track day

Found out the hard way..... stainless brake line fittings have a different thermal coefficient than aluminum calipers. When you heat up your brakes at the track, they can get to 1000+ degrees. Aluminum and steel expand at a different rate

 

One of mine came loose and sprayed a little brake fluid on to my wheels that ate thru the clear coat!

 

Got a new wheel and an education!

 

Torque to 113 inch pounds.
