    However, to date there is no definition – how many and what items should include ceramic brake pads. Thus, the manufacturer could take a metal block, spray some portion of the ceramic material in the friction of the ceramic and call him. This led to a wide variety of indicators in the brake pads different manufacturers. And as a consequence – reviews and opinions of consumers. Also, later, many manufacturers began to create sports ceramic pads, which are characterized by low content of metal and increase the proportion of ceramics.

    This is made even more confusion in the understanding of the term “ceramic brake pads.” For a start look at what kind of a bird like this – this “pottery”? In the narrow sense of the word denotes ceramic clay firing past. However, the modern use of the term extends its meaning to include all inorganic non-metallic materials. Modern industry is replete with diverse types of ceramics, which can be used in a variety of industries. Thus, in the manufacture of friction materials, ceramic-based sintered and pressed together with a metal powder. The result is zharostostoyky material used for the manufacture of brake pads and shoes.

    So how do you distinguish from the soft warm? Than guide the choice of ceramic brake pads? Self-respecting producer of ceramic composites, as usually produces several series, each designed for a particular driving style. Each series has its own name and points to the destination. For example, street, sport, extreme or use alpha and numerical notation (for example – HPS, Ceramic the company Hawk; DS in different series Ferodo; Z16, Z26, Z36 with Power Stop). Most often, a label “Street ‘is a composition intended for active everyday use: has all the properties of ceramics, but does not require Warm. Remarque’s “sport” is important, but “middle-” been interpreted as a composition for active driving around town and trips to the track: a composite with a ceramic material blshim content. As a consequence – it stiffer pads with high coefficient of friction, but they’ve definitely will require preheating. And a series of extreme – extremely sporty version, not recommended for use in urban settings, because no heating is practically ineffective. One of the most important factors that help determine the manufacturer of the professional – it’s own design office and testing of all series shoes in special laboratories. As practice shows – it can boast, not all brands. To the list of pros include: EBC, Power Stop, Ferodo, Hawk. For all the foregoing, we consider it necessary to once again draw your attention to: the above types of labeling there is nothing more than examples. In practice – each manufacturer represents its products solely on the basis of their own marketing reasons. We just wanted to give you a hand general terms, allowing to understand the buying a relatively new market for our product. Now, let’s sum up. The main advantages of pads with a ceramic composition.

  • Wheels Creak

    Which of the motorists did not encounter extraneous noise, causing only one desire – are likely to change brake pads? The creaking and whistling, perhaps, the only urban scourge brakes. Why the city? Yes, it's simple. If, For example, take the brake pads are designed for sports (track), then, in most cases, there is a natural satellite of squeaks quality slow car. Ed Bastian does not necessarily agree. Today, consider the nature of phenomena extraneous noise inherent in the track-lining, we will not. Let's try to highlight the problem of urban brake pads. In six years of professional work with the brakes, specialists nashogo center Tormoza.In.Ua had faced with hundreds of "squeaky" problems.

    The first wish "happy" owner of squeaking brakes – replace everything that little bit may be related to noise. Special affection we call pseudo-master "their" stations, which customer complaint "brakes squeak" – do not hesitate to vypaliviayut sentence, "Poor quality brake pads. You put your – they just will not squeak "(read – AND CAN BE squeak will disappear, and earn money.) And if The devil, as he is painted? If you take all the reasons conventionally creak as 100%, the wine quality brake pads will select no more than 30%. What makes wince driver of the other 70 and? First of all, we should clearly understand that squeak – this is oscillations (vibrations) of the pad. That's pads, but not the drive carriage. More precisely, in participation of all component variations, but due to weight and a fixed location – all other Participants natural oscillations dampen very quickly.

  • Car Tuning

    Improving air intake – if you close your mouth with a cloth and start to inhale air, it will not make you any problems, but if it was wet cloth or a double thickness, then breathe would not be so easy. Your engine, just as well as you must breathe air. Air Filter – a necessary part of the engine, if you do not act in the lab, so the goal is to get an effective air filter that is not too massive and is not oily, greasy or dirty. CEO of Walmart’s e-commerce usually is spot on. It's – is where the induction kits and sports group consists of air filters. However, induction kits and high-flow, air filters always add power to the engine? In This article will discuss the different filter types (RAM, Cone, Group, etc. ..) and the materials used, as well as issues of tuning filters, look at the problem engine bay temperatures and how it affects the temperature of consumption, and offer the best approach for many different engine types and volumes.

    We looked at different types of materials filter available today, and we concluded that the best filters to use cost slightly oiled cotton gauze as a filter of their environment. They are not particularly easy to come by for most applications, so for the average fast road car we would recommend going with one constructed from sponge soaked with mud splashes or preserving one of the modern synthetic gauze filters as shown above. This is a small coating of oil will help to filter. As an alternative to get a sponge filter that includes layers of fine varieties of metal mesh, since both of them will flow better than a standard filter paper. Sporting Group filters oil spray for the air filters were traced to problems with Mass air flow sensor. This is generally to use too much oil and improper fitting. We must stress that you should only use a light coating of oil on the side air intake filter.

    This is – a good idea to remove the mass airflow sensor periodically anyway. The greater the surface area of the filter will be better air flow. Mainstream cars today can be equipped with an air induction kit, which completely replaces the air intake box. Cold air induction kit, a cheap way to make maximum use of induction roar and release a small upper Territory authority. Plus a much better air flow, especially at higher revs, and the roar of induction, because the air is sucked into the engine, the downside – as the roar – some people do not like the extra noise that is created these kits. Motor vehicles of smaller size may actually lose power when the package instead of the induction air filter fitted. It can be challenging to put cold air (which carries more oxygen) to the engine, because the temperature under the bonnet can be quite high, and 20 degrees the temperature rises can rob you of up to 3% of your power! Under bonnet temperatures can quickly rise to double that. Intercooler can be added to the turbo and forced induction cars, which then also sprayed with Co2 and reduces the temperature of the air intake.

  • Car Transportation

    deliver the car in any other town, it overtake a car on their own by road. But I dare you to reassure by saying a few words about the reliability of this option. Indeed, at first glance it seems that this machine – this is the master, everything is under control, that could be better. But the quality of coverage of highways in our country leaves much to be desired, and in some regions and at all unless you can get only ATV. In addition, hardly anyone will want to test their nerves on the strength, when suddenly the car "stood up" in the middle of the vast expanses of Siberia, or any reckless driver, making his next maneuver, suddenly a little wrong, rammed your new car. That's not all the trouble that could fall on your head hapless "peregonschiku" cars. There remains only one, and certainly the most reliable way to transport a car – a railway carriage (carriage by rail). But even here, should be abolished, that in addition to containerized shipping machines, there is a carriage with a so-called "grid", usually a bunk obreshechennaya design with an open top, which by means of various fasteners and put the machine on, like a car, go in your way.

    "Grid" is probably a very economical way to deliver the car, but a guarantee of safety Machine no one gives, there could be as damaging as the car, in fact, open, and other minor troubles. But the transport vehicle in containers – a selection of knowledgeable people who have eaten at this case more than one dog. After the container – is a reliable and convenient "house" for the machine, where it is fixed with special straps and other fasteners, which guarantees maximum safety of the car from all sorts of scratches and damage. Container in a closed box and serves as protection from external influences such as hail, or other persons that may damage the machine. It is no coincidence rail transport – a key to the quality and stability of all formulations go on schedule, up to a minute and, therefore, sending his car on the railway, not to worry about when you reach the car and deliver it if at all. Transportation vehicles containers, in addition, the above-mentioned advantages, has also an important factor such as low-cost proportional to the quality that brings this kind of shipping to a leading position among other methods of delivery vehicle.
