Brake Rotors - Getting Better Of Brake Fade
 by: Louie Liu





The star performers are those who deliver when it is crunch time, that is when the pressure to perform is very high and the situation hangs in balance. At such a time the outcome depends on the star performer's effort and the outcome can be quite seriously bad if the star performer does not deliver. In a movie at such a time the hero delivers the telling blow and saves the day and justifies his billing. But in real life it is not that there are always happy endings.

For example when you need to stop your car quickly when it is going at a high speed your brakes have very little time to deliver the desired outcome. At such time the mechanism of the brakes presses the brake pads against the brake rotors and the friction so generated results in the retarding force that brings the car to a halt. However as the friction is being generated, the components start to heat up and if this heat is not dissipated fast enough the friction generated will start to reduce and you will feel the brakes start to fade and are not able to continue to generate a large retarding force.

Therefore it is important that the heat generated during braking is effectively dissipated. You may wonder as to how come such a lot of heat is generated. Well you will know that the car is a heavy object and therefore when it is moving fast it possesses a lot of kinetic energy. When the car is brought to a halt all this kinetic energy must be converted to heat energy and that means that a lot of heat is generated. Thankfully there is a lot of research done to improve the components of the braking system and chances are the latest cross drilled rotors are better at dissipating the heat than the rotors of your car if it is a few years old. And installing them will enable you to enjoy a more confident braking performance. You will have better car control and your driving will become less stressful.
