    brake pad wheel guides. the point?

    I have not seen them mentioned. I guess I think they look cool, but why were these considered a necessity? Is it for faster wheel changes in races?

    Zeus pads?

    The guides aren't strictly necessary but were intended to allow faster wheel changes by guiding the tire between the pads.
