Re: Carroll Smith's brake tips

i read that link from performance forums in the brake section a while ago, i have used it many times, it always made people think i was a bloody genius now you have just exploded that myth /sad face

even impressed my foreman with my knowlege, and it was great when explaining to a customer the reason his brakes kept shuddering...

Re: Carroll Smith's brake tips

That article was very good, at least explains why the discs get "warped" as such... tho last time this happened to mine, i was told that it was becuase of driving through water.. hrmmmmm
