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:

  • Sidenote:clean your wheel hub when replacing rotors, the tend to build upp rust and shit you dont want clearly seen at 8:25. If not done, over time the hub gets uneven and warps the rotors faster. Love the moneypit series!

  • 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

  • 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?

  • 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?

    Jana KakašováJana Kakašováپیش ماه
    • @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 75Redtooth 75پیش ماه
    • @Redtooth 75 I thought about another pads with higher coefficient of friction....

      Jana KakašováJana Kakašováپیش ماه
    • Stopping distance is limited by traction, not braking power. Unless the brakes are overheated.

  • 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.
