BRakes (GET REALLY HOT)

from my other posts you would know i fitted the pedders stuff, and sway bars. well after i posted that i went for a spin down the great ocean road and back and this is what happend to the brakes...

The rotors cracked, and as you can see had lots of hot spots..
Got a free set of second hand ones from under my work bench, spun em on the disk laith, then coated them in this shit thats spose to make them not be noisy so far so good. ....

bloody stupid cast iron......

Re: BRakes (GET REALLY HOT)

Strange that the hot-spots would become harder - must be A1 steel or something..

Just use shitty pads, you'll find that you can just no longer break, well before the discs get hot enough to crack :) Of course, every time this has happened to me, my biggest concern is no longer whether the discs will crack or not, but how they're gonna pry me out from underneath that semi-trailer
