There are many things you can improve with a car, and of course that also applies to them Bremsanlage, For example, you can replace / upgrade the brake system in your car with a compound brake. Such a compound brake system is not available for one normal Car, but mostly only in high-quality vehicles with a lot of power and in high-performance sports cars.
Processing of the compound brake system
Compared to a normal brake system, a compound brake system has numerous advantages. These advantages result primarily from the processing. For example, the brake system's friction ring is made of gray cast iron and is mounted on an aluminum pot with special pins. The pins in the pot of the brake system are made of stainless steel and are cast and thus firmly connected. Due to this type of processing and the consideration of a perforation in the disc, the compound brake system is better ventilated, can “work” more and thus also better decelerate. The way the system is designed offers particularly good protection against thermal loads caused by heat that arise during braking. Rather, the processing results not only in high durability for the compound brake system, but also in low weight. Compared to a normal brake system, the weight is reduced by several kilograms. This is due to the workmanship of the brake system and, above all, the use of aluminum. This is particularly noticeable when you are on the racetrack with such a brake system. As already mentioned, the structure of the brake means that it is floating, which allows the brake disc to expand unhindered. This affects the braking behavior, which is soft and absolutely precise.
Safety thanks to the compound brake system
A compound brake system not only has advantages such as robustness, but also safety. With a compound brake system, safety in a car improves. The braking system improves the braking process significantly in some cases. The example of a BMW M3 makes this clear with impressive values. The braking distance from 100 km / h in the M3 is just under 35 meters and a time of around 2,6 seconds. The deceleration is said to be around 11 m / s ^ 2. The braking process is therefore shorter and the time that passes until the car comes to a standstill. If you want to retrofit a compound brake system, this is possible for many vehicles. In particular, the sporty BMW M vehicles are particularly associated with this. The change to the brake system must be approved by an expert. Because this is a major change that also affects car safety. However, this is usually associated with few problems, especially with a parts certificate that you get when you buy a compound brake system.
We hope that you the info report on the topic / term Compound brakes (Further designations / keywords: Compound brake, compound brake disc) from the field of autotuning.
