Brake discs are found on the front wheels of the vehicle, though some cars come with them on all four wheels, an option available to customers looking to upgrade. The role of the brake disc is to bring the car to a stop when pressure to the brakes is applied, so it’s clearly a crucial component. Brake discs work intrinsically with other brake parts, specifically the brake pads, rotor and caliper, converting the kinetic energy into heat generated by the friction caused by the pads and the disc and bringing the car to a stop.
LK Performance offers a range of branded brake products including vented disk brakes which are designed to allow for cooling. It’s very important that your brake discs are designed so as not to encourage overheating, otherwise your brake performance will be drastically affected. Standard disc brakes in modern cars are usually made with a single-piston floating caliper, but there are other options available.
