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.

You like mini stories? Keep in mind I been driving for 4 months and don't know nothing about cars really. My car worked normal, I drove it 30 mins away from home to an auto parts store to buy some tool and "bleed" the breaks there from the master cylinder according to some YouTube videos. Ended up with no breaking power, break peddle to the floor and car woud drive away when e-break was released. Called some mechanics and told them I had no breaks and they said I needed to drive the car to their shop LOL Took an Uber home, 1 am took an Uber back to that parking lot and decided to drive my car home with no breaks i used my e-break to stop, hardly any cars on the road, drove extra safe and careful I made it safe and next day I did a 100% Full bleeding and flushing? of all the break lines alone with my little home made kit and boom my breaks now are working better then before. I'm glad I decided to do that and try to fix it my self instead of paying a tow truck and mechanics most likely would scam me. anyway thanks for posting loving the vids 😅😎

Oversized brakes are one of my favorite things to see on any car, especially if it came from factory with them.

Zach! Zach!! I know you lived but your safety plan is making me cringe. I can’t stop looking at the brake disk hanging over you. As a California boy (I.e., Earthquake Land), I was taught to lay my tires under the frame so if we get a little rollin’ I get to replace rims and not my chest... Excellent info as always though!

i like my brembos just for how easy they are to swap the pads.

Might be a problem when you balance your wheels. Sticking some weights on look like they will hit the parking brake cable.

not ' rotor warping ' brake pad deposit.. or pad transfer.. that micro deposit of pad in a localized spot will make the pad and pistons pluse as the pad runs over the deposit.. it will make it feel like a pulsing brake pad.. and as for the brake bias adjuster.. how did you test it? in the video,, you did not adjust the front to rear owner.. alfa logic.. working on classic alfa romeos, ferrari's. auto bianchi's, fiats.. lancia;s etc.. we do our homework..and make , upgraded( big brake ) kits.. not off the shelf.. but idea, design and test.. before customers get to own them.. but overall you have a great channel

forgot,, if the rotor is rusted to the hub.. after you remove it,, it should be rid of the rust, and a nickel anti seize painted onto the hub surface.. nickel anti seize has a higher temp. rating than the copper stuff.. and brakes get

I Love you guys

You really don't need to change brake fluid once a year unless you're tracking it hard or there's problem or corrosion which has allowed water into the lines. Maybe every 5 to 6 years? Brake fluid degradation is very obvious when you brake, so you'll know when it's time to replace, it's not something you need to do as a matter of course.
shrekvt - 2 maanden geleden
It's a fallacy that if you can lock up your brakes, then they are "big" enough. Brakes turn kinetic energy in to heat. The more heat your brakes are able to dissipate, the faster they can slow you down. When you lock up the brakes, it means you have exceed the frictional and heat capability of the of brakes and they just lock up. All things equal (brake compound, brake fluid, rotor,... etc) the bigger the brake, the more heat they can dissipate before simply locking up.

Tbh I doubt I ever will stop watching these guys. I love cars and want my own project car however I am still afraid buying one because its alot of money. But I got meself a decent daily driver I wanna make a tad bit better for daily driving. No performance upgrades but maybe like a long end shifter, Decent brakes, coil overs, wheels and such things that just make the car overall feeling better to drive.

it's so insane that car guys don't get why you need bigger brakes. bigger rotors are able to absorb more heat and you can use them for longer when braking hard, while stock brakes will fade out and leave you without any brakes and create dangerous situations.

You other calipers can't deny
When a stop rolls in
With itty bitty space
Tires squealing in your face
Wanna lock-up tight
Gotta notice that skid looks straight
Even the lunge in cabin
Not moving, other cars staring

I always spring for ceramic pads.
And one trick for brake fluid, instead of draining your entire brake system, just suck out what's in the reservoir with a fluid remover or turkey baster and then fill the reservoir back up. It gives the system fresh fluid and you don't have to re-bleed the brakes.

Bottom line for the streets you only need to stop once so you’re not going to experience any fade. On the track it’s a different story once they get hot it’s like stepping on a Sponge so you need all the breaks you can get.

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.

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
