Brake & Rotor Repair
ABS, Brake bleeding, New Rotors & Rotor Machining
Nothing is more important than your vehicle's ability to stop. Race Car drivers will say a car's braking ability is more important than its acceleration. Hitting a wall is much less entertaining than gently touching the brakes, banking into a turn, then accelerating out. Not as safe as well.
Braking systems can fail mainly due to owner's neglect. In the case of braking, it's essential to maintain optimum friction pad depth to insure maximum performance of the braking system. In other words Maintain your Brake System!
A disc brake assembly is composed of the following elements: a caliper, two brake pads, a rotor, and some bolts and clips to hold it altogether. The design is very simple and work like this:
The caliper comes in two kinds, either floating or fixed. Each works on a similar principle. The caliper's job is to squeeze the brake pads toward a centrally located metal plate, called the rotor, which produces friction, and slows the car down.
The brake pads hover on either side of the metal plate. They attach to the inside of the caliper, depending on your car's design, with clips or bolts. They are composed of heat-resistant material that rubs against the rotor. When the brakes are applied, the pads move toward one another, gripping the rotor between them and slowing the wheels.
