  1. For years... the long and painful war against the tyrants of the roads... the cyclists... has dragged on and on. Eh, we tahan a lot already OK! Repeating instances like these make it so hard to like them, don't you agree? At a bustling junction at Potong Pasir (segueing into Serangoon Road), in the early evening when road users were making their way home after a tiring day at work--- a dashcam video was captured of this errant cyclist! Such misdeeds put onto record, laid out for the world to see. Take a look at the video, if you can bear the oncoming rage you will feel: 293790
  2. HI Guys, Just wanna see how you all decide on the brake pad you use on your car.

  3. 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
  4. Kudos to the Honda Shuttle for not falling victim to this Mercedes driver’s antics! With 2022 drawing near, this Mercedes driver decides to pull one last trick out of his sleeve to end his year with a bang. In this video, a cam car is driving in the middle lane towards Paya Lebar Road. A silver Honda Shuttle is traveling right in front of him. After both vehicles pass a junction, the Shuttle shifts to the left lane. The Mercedes in front of it quickly mirrors his actions, blocking the silver vehicle. Here's a close up of the action: Determ
  5. Ever since I changed to bigger rims, my brakes start to squeak every morning when I start the car. It goes away after a few brakings. I doubt changing rims make this noise. Anyone can advise what could be the problem? Thx
  6. My VW Jetta 2014 model recently have "brake servo failure" with 3 error signs shown (photo). Now this sign came out every time after engine starts. In march 2021 VW Singapore quoted me replacement of ABS/EDL Control Unit for $3,974, of course I refused to do so. Anyone can offer your solution?
  7. You can control the color of the light from your smartphone. Brembo is a world leader in braking technology, but its new G Sessanta caliper concept is a very weird idea. These stoppers light up, and owners can control the color of the illumination from a smartphone app. The company's video (above) shows the G Sessanta on a motorcycle. However, our pals at Motor1 Italy spoke to Brembo and confirmed this caliper concept applied to automotive applications, too. Brembo sees the illuminated calipers as having two major applications. First, they could look cool aesthetically. It's not
  8. Having fiddle and fondle with a few models (car models, that is) over the past few days, I learnt that hand-pulling brake is still in use in some cars, foot-stepping brake hardly around anymore, and the new trend ... EPB, electronic parking brake, aka flap brake. Really love those hand-pulling brakes! The satisfaction that you get when you hold the stick and pull it up is so immense. You can feel the direct relationship between how high you pull the stick and how tight the brakes are. And you can do it swiftly, loudly, gently or quietly, depending on your mood or road circumstances. And you
  9. It is of utmost importance that we keep our brake systems working and healthy at all times. The following video perfectly illustrates why. Seen on 8th of December is a Honda Vezel exiting onto a busy Dunearn Road from one of the smaller lanes. The law-abiding drivers would know that you should never turn into the middle lane but this Vezel bravely crossed the double white line without hesitation. This caused the Honda Civic Type R camera car that submitted the video to SG Road Vigilante to claim that he had to slam on his brakes real hard, causing the brake hose to erm... break
  10. Oh no, this white Porsche Macan is going to get flamed online by neitzens everywhere with his/her brake-checking skills. Spotted on SG Road Vigilante's page is this video of a Porsche SUV that is pissed with the camera car not giving way on 30th of Nov 2020. Everything started from the junction of Upper Thompson and Braddell Road with the Porsche slowly catching up to the camera car which was going a decent speed. The Porsche then wanted to overtake on Braddell road for a few times but somehow luck was not in his way and the camera car seemed like it was blocking the SUV. With e

  13. 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 th
  14. Search the entire forum and it seems like there is no discussion on CLA Shooting brake........any feedback (be it + or -) on this particular model?
  15. I find this video very therapeutic. Got the ASMR feel. haha.
  16. 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?
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. Looking for brake cleaner at Toh Guan area. Anyone came across which shop selling? Pls do not recomend engine degreaser/ carb cleaner as Im not sure it will attack piston seal or any rubber parts on the caliper.... Thanks.
  21. 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?
  22. 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.
  23. 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 a
  24. 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...
