Brakes 101

Recommended Posts

Found this during a google search for brake pads, and I thought I should share it here. It's a long, but high informative discussion of the science of stopping an automobile. May be helpful to many of us, because (as the author states) "there is no free lunch".

Interesting read - looks very much like the writings of Carroll Smith from the 70's and 80's

It is indeed the work of "Carroll Smith".


As I read through the text, I wondered if "Smith" was an alias for Shelby, but it doesn't matter. The 411 is timeless, and base brake principles remained unchanged today.


Good place for any novice to begin.
