This is what it takes to overheat the brakes on one of these new Explorers.
I dont get it, you did a few passes and braked at the end of each to do U-turns.

The brakes were smoking and making a pretty loud howling/grinding noise that you can hear pretty clearly towards the end of the video. The clip of the wheel was meant to demonstrate the brake smoke, but you can hardly see it.
"Overheated" is incorrect terminology I guess. They weren't fading too bad yet. They could have just been smoking because of how new they were. They had a good few stops left in them, but they were getting pretty hot.
