negative ghostrider. lines wont increase the mechanical advantage of the petals or the pedals. it will however change the feedback and resistance in the pedals.

we're saying the same thing and arguing about it again.

I press X hard
Given rubber lines, the petal will depress Y far and result in some fixed breaking
Given steel lines, the petal will depress Z far and result in some fixed breaking

The Z is less than Y even though the breaking is the same. They FEEL like you have to press less to give the desired results.

sorry man, you said
"harder lines increase the breaking done per bit of force" which is wrong. thats what i responded too.

your above description i agree with.


completely unrelated;
petals =
pedals =

well the picture doesn't work but I get the point. Hey, at least I TRY to spell correctly. Unlike most of you.

I'm going to start cussing the next time somebody uses C U Z.

you only need more breaks when you experience break fade. Drag racing won't give you break fade. Run 200mph trap speed if you want, your stock breaks are fine for it. The rest of the car maybe not so much but that's not the point of your question, right?

I've had brake fade before drag racing....thats why I asked...it wasnt necesarily legal dragging....but what happened was I raced a guy from a stop light to another light, and then again from that light to the next one, on that second race at the end I had break fade and was pretty much stading up on the brake pedal for the car to stop which it barley did and it was super scary...this was in my Integra WITH upgraded rotors and pads....

The problem there is the asshat behind the wheel, not the brakes. The scenario you're describing sounds more like the fluid got too hot and not really a pad/rotor/caliper capability issue. Probably not a properly maintained break system.

Ok, that was a plethora of knowledge in that "king" of brake threads. Took me 2 hrs to read it all. MOSC, why are you deleting my posts ?

Mosc,

Explain a properly maintained braking syatem other than changing pads every 20K or when they are getting "to that point"....

brake fluid needs to be flushed on occasion. it needs to be bled regularly. air in a hydrolic system will overheat considerably faster then one that does not have air in it.

Can you explain "regularly" ? Also, what fluid is the best for our cars ?
