To go fast you've gotta be able to brake fast.
Zach gives you the low down on what matters when picking out a new set of brakes.
Check out the brakes we used from Flyin' Miata here:

Also no mentioning of carbon fiber ceramic pads and rotors plus I wouldn’t recommend two different set of pads the rotors and pad get seated and will most likely give pad slap when you switch pads

Currently upgrading my 4th gen Camaro to the CTS-V 6 piston calipers. They require an 18" wheel. I'm waiting for the second rotor to show up. They forgot to pack it. Can't wait!!!

Honest question: Why aren't rims shaped like a ventilator? If the rim was sucking air from inside out, they would indeed cause a bit more air resistance and unsprung weight, but they should be really help to cool the brakes + technically provide extra drag (by reducing the air pressure under the car on high speeds).

You should always sand down the face of the hub before you place the new rotors on, it helps make a flatter surface.

Hi, I am having an issue with my Honda Civic 2004 ES On smooth surface my brakes work perfectly, but as soon as I hit an uneven surface while braking, the brake's pedal gets harder, starts blocking and shaking. I am still wondering what is the issue with that. Can I get an advice about the issue please?

Great video, but you also need to match the upgraded brakes with upgraded performance tires. Great video and keep up the good work

I would have to say that hitting a car on stands with a hammer and to check if it's stable first is probably not a bad idea, but checking the car first thing before doing a single thing once it was up on stands would be a better practice. Especially before removing the tires!! If it was not supported correct and it did happen to fall, you want those tires there to catch it!! So do your wiggle test first thing and whenever you see fit to really. But that first one is most important..

Any change in stopping distance?
Redtooth 75
Redtooth 75 Ամիս առաջ
@Jana Kakašová higher coefficients would increase the stopping power with the same amount of pedal effort but the amount of stopping power you can actually apply wouldn't change. The brakes are strong enough to overpower traction and lock up the wheels, stronger brakes won't change that. Higher quality and performance brakes wear slower, create less dust and noise, and handle heat better. The only thing you can do to decrease stopping distance is to get better tires or make the vehicle lighter.

@Redtooth 75 I thought about another pads with higher coefficient of friction....

Redtooth 75 Ամիս առաջ
Stopping distance is limited by traction, not braking power. Unless the brakes are overheated.

@Donutmedia You know you live in Cali when you leave the door open an have a fat PHX bong sittin on the kitchen counter all non-chulant, and judging from the sound of those goddam plague-like parrots that have taken over the skies like a virus and how his neighborhood looks I'd say an LA beach city, maybe Venice Beach? Redondo? It doesn't look like Newport or Huntington, it def must be somewhere north of Long beach; ami right??? Sometimes i forget why I LOVE LIVIN IN LA!!!

Get your fingers off the friction surface of the pads. The pads and rotors need to absolutely free of oil, grease, or dirt.

So dig everything so far...but missed opportunity to explain having a clean and flat surface for the "hat" (center section) to mate flush. This keeps pulsation down and ensures smooth engagement. It's a bigger deal in rustier locations. However, still important. Side note...cams and tune before boost. Personal opinion and choice.
