    ASMR Brake Restoration!

    I find this video very therapeutic. Got the ASMR feel. haha.
  2. Nowadays, more and more new car model have replaced the hand brake with the foot pedal brake. Any one knows what is the main reason for the change? Maybe cost savings perhaps as I don't see this as an improvement. With the hand brake visible next to us, we sometimes still forget to release it before moving off. Wonder if the hand brake now changed to foot pedal brake, will this kind of mistake be more frequent? Any bro or sis using foot padel brake can share their experience?
  3. General Motors has fitted the new Corvette with a brake-by-wire system that allows its owners to adjust the braking feel according to their moods. Making use of a brake-by-wire system, this setup has allowed engineers to combine the braking master cylinder, vacuum booster, vacuum pump, and electronic brake control module into one single unit, thereby also allowing them to tune the amount of braking force needed to be applied on the pedal when stopping the car. According to its press materials, the drivers have a choice of three different modes, Tour, Sport and Track. In Tour mode, drivers will not need to apply a lot of force to stop the car and will have a comfortable brake feel for everyday driving. Sport will give a more immediate and stronger-biting feel while in Track, the braking will be more linear while still having an aggressive feel at the limit to allow drivers to trail-brake during hard driving. That said, the Corvette is not the first nor only car to have such a feature. BMW's M8 is touted to have such a similarly advance braking system.
  4. Dear all, I am driving a Chevrolet Optra 1.6 (A), i this "spongy" feeling of the brakes... whereby i have to depress the brakes pedal alot before the pad will bite. This casue me difficult to control light braking and sometime even dangerous in some situation. (i had done bleeding and changing to aftermarket pads already.. the "spongy" feeling still comes back after a month of usage) As disscussion with my mechanic, conclusion is that the master brake booster cannot build up adequate pressure to allow effective braking feel on the brakes. Q: Other then changing the master brake booster, is there other ways to reduce this "spongy" feeling or to build up the master brake booster pressure? Comments? thank you

  7. Currently driving a subaru impreza 2008 5d 1.5r i wanted to get this, any advice? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KT5C88I/?tag=powsto07-20
  8. I recently installed a set of AP racing big brake kit. Right after installation, it produce a loud squealing noise during braking. This was resolved after adding brake shim and grease and chamfering the pads. It has a groaning noise when car is in D gear trying to crawl forward while I depressed the brake pedal slightly to catering for creeping of the car. I noticed many auto gear cars have this noise but it didn’t have on my stock brakes. Can any gurus advise please is it his normal and how to resolve it? Thanks.

    Brake sound

    Hi bros, Recently when I depress my brake padal, there is a "tock" sound heard. Serviced brake but sound still come back. I am driving a Toyota, heard that this is a known problem for Toyota that the "tock" sound come from the brake caliper. Any bro who have this problem before? The sound is so irritating that I feel want to replace the whole brake caliper. How much to get stock caliper? Which stockist to get?
  11. i call all the famous ones and the freelancers one, all of them will not remove the tyre from the rim to respray. neither will they remove the calipers to spray. i was wondering if anyone has a contact to a professional who can spray paint in that manner.
  12. Hi All, As most cars here need to have their car brake fluid replace every 2-3 yrs (fluid absorbs moisture and lose braking efficiency) and properly bleed the system (avoid air pockets), let us all contribute some places to go and estimated costs. Brake system is important and safety aspect even more so due to high humidity here in Singapore. Some drivers even change brake fluid every year. Well done guys! With more info, so hoping more drivers will inclined to maintain their brake system whichever part of the island you're at. Cars with ABS system need to be bleed by vacuum method and those without ABS may simply use the leg pump method. Let's contribute : 1) Stamf Tyres = bleed by vacuum method, uses Caltex DOT4 , est $40 (Feb 2011) 2) Yap Bro = by vacuum method, uses Indemitsu DOT 4, est $45-$50 (Feb 2011). 3) 4)

    Correct way of driving

    How many drivers here use right foot for stepping accelerator and brake pedal? How many use left foot to step brake and right foot to step accelerator? Believe it or not, the correct way is to use right foot only! Quite shocking to know some of my friends are driving wrongly...

    Brake Pads

    Hi guys, Anyone can recommend where can I change my front brake pads? I believe they need to be replaced. My car is Honda Civic FD4. And my tyres are producing sounds when I drive at higher speed. Normally the sounds will come out when I drive above 80/90km/h. Is it because it needed to do tyre rotation or alignment? Please share the info if you know. Thank you so much
  16. See pic below. I checked the manual and could not find anything related to this issue. just send to workshop? Any advise? thanks.
  17. If I release my brake slowly and stop again esp at traffic lights, I can hear this creaking metallic sound coming from my rear, as if some hinges is not well oil. The brake is working well just the noise is annoying for a car that is quite new on the road. There is no noise if I release brake fully, it comes only if I didnt fuly release the brake pedal like in stop start situation. Any idea or similar exp anyone?
  18. Can Anyone VW car owners, advise if u had such experience code? The code came out but it goes away after some distance. But this had been coming back a few time already. As no error code when I drive to workshop. They can’t check for me!!! Don’t feel comfortable. Thanks
  19. Wah piang eh.. Buay tahan liao! Some drivers simply don't see the importance of the brake lights especially the 3rd brake light. Can we take pictures of these cars and submit to LTA? Not i jiak ba boh sai pang but these cars when they brake, u dont even know they brake if u r not alert! Especially without 3rd brake light. Sorry for friday rant but alot of taxis and old cars dont bother to repair.
  20. Hi all, anyone here using the above mentioned? Any review to contribute? Good or bad reviews all welcome, thanks
  21. Hi all, Just curious since I am still inexperience in all these. On Singapore roads given that my ride is front and back brake disc, just how often are the brake pads changed. Cause I realized that driving on local road uses the brakes a lot due to constant traffic light stoppages, though I understand that how often it is changed depends on individual driving style, so hope everyone can share your experience with me so i have a rough idea. Thanks
