2014 Corvette: Techlink Article: Front Brake Rotor Cooling Rings
Source: GM TechLink
Date: October 7, 2013
During Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) of the 2014 Corvette Stingray, two rings and a coil of safety wire will be found in the loose items bag. There may be some question about the purpose of these items and/or how to install them.
The two rings are the front brake rotor cooling rings. They are NOT to be installed during the PDI process, but rather given to the customer at the time of delivery.
TIP: Do not leave the rotor cooling rings installed (Fig. 11) after a track event as this can cause corrosion with long-term use. Rotor cooling rings are for race track use only. Race track driving without the rotor cooling rings may result in brake pedal fade.
More information on the installation of the rotor cooling rings can be found under Rotor Cooling Ring in the Track Events and Competitive Driving section of the Owner Manual.
