>being so pathetic that your peak goal in life is to be a detailer and cant even manage to do that.

A few negros in a town I used to live in would sit in grocery parking lots and detail vehicles out of the trunks of their cars.

There's a young guy at work who has an old crappy old toyota cressida and he acts like it's something to be proud of.

How do I convince him that it's really the crappy old shit box that it is before he wastes his money "modifying" it.

So I just replaced the battery in my car, when I turn the headlights on the dashboard lights all get super dim for.some reason, that never happened before. Also the check engine and battery light are on. Could it be my alternator?

sounds like you got a shit battery. It isn't able to produce a sufficient charge to power everything while being charged from the alternator.

Do you have issues starting it up at all? That would be the largest current draw on it and where you should see an issue.

Why do people pretend like there is any difference between brake systems? It's a hollow piece of metal. There is nothing to compete against. You can use different materials in an effort to dissipate heat faster and reduce weight but there is no actual difference in performance. Components like the master cylinder, brake lines, piston count, and brake pad material all contribute infinitely more to "braking feel" and performance than the fucking calipers. And even if you are a pro F1 faggot who feels the need to shave off 100 grams of weight from their calipers to save weight, it's not like a pair of Chinese drilled/slotted rotors and calipers can achieve 99% of the same level of performance.

Brakes are a meme. Prove me wrong

For a motorbike bigger rotars offer more modulation which allows you to feel the perfect braking point before your wheel locks up giving you the best possible braking power.
>>
>>18706786
I think i might switch to those 1 piece rotors you have they seem to have great reviews. I am getting tired of having to clean my rotors every year or whenever I do a tire/brake change because the "tech" does not properly torque the lugs or clean my mounting hub and the wheels start clicking when I turn.

>>18702716
1. Brakes overheat, some systems earlier, some systems later.
2. Brakes will fade when overheated, some systems earlier, some systems later.
3. Brake fade reduces brake performance significantly

Better brakes can make a difference if you manage to overheat your brakes, wich does happen on the track when you actualy go fast.
However there is little difference for normal street driving if you don't live in germany...
>>
while it is fundamentally true that if your brakes can cause the tires to lock up, your braking power is as strong as it needs to be (not that locking up is the best way to brake on pavement, as we all know), as you cannot slow the rotation of the tires below zero.

people who make this point tend to leave out the second important factor which is a tire's ability to resist changes in momentum without breaking traction.

so while one piston brakes may be adequate to lock up discount schwab tires on a metro, they will probably be fully inadequate at providing full braking power on pilot sport cups or other performance tires
