How Brake Rotors Function Regular car maintenance involves, among other included check ups, changing the engine oil, checking on the tire pressure, and checking on the car’s brake system that includes the brake fluid, brake pads, and brake rotors. Brake rotors or brake discs have its own specific role functions in the brake system as they are the parts where the brake pads clamp down on to stop the car’s wheels from spinning. There are two types of brake rotors, drilled and slotted types, and with respect to the drilled brake rotors, they are distinguished by its holes drilled into the brake parts for reasons of, first, dissipating the heat created from friction when the brake pads grab the rotor, because if heat cannot escape or dissipate the brake’s stopping power is reduced and, second, any gas build up or water entering into the brake parts can be quickly removed at the brake rotor surface, thereby, allowing for the brake system to perform well. Slotted brake rotors are best suited for performance car driving like those in the racetrack, since the slots are carved into the face of the rotors with its vents located around the edge of the rotor, such that when the rotor spins, the heat escapes through the vents, making it possible to have faster removal of heat which results into a high brake performance. The brake rotors in trucks and in heavy vehicles are made of larger size than those of from the cars and made of sturdier materials, such as cast iron or steel, this is because a lot of force is needed in stopping a truck and, therefore, the stopping and slowing down need a lot of friction from the brakes and when there is greater friction, there is bound to be more heat generated, so the brake rotor is purposely designed to consider the fast removal of heat generated from friction in trucks.

While brake rotors in motorcycles have the same operation principle as those in cars, they differ with respect to the functions of the brake rotors in the front and rear brakes, since the front brake takes a greater role in the stopping power, while the rear brake assisting to slow down the motorcycle. Furthermore, the similarity in function and performance with respect to the types of brake rotors in cars are also applied in motorcycles, such that the drilled brake rotors are often used for street driven motorcycles, while the slotted brake rotors are installed in motorcycles used for racing. In motorcycles, the brake rotors have evolved into a design feature to make the motorcycle stand out, since they are visibly seen, some motorcyclists look into custom-designed rotors, producing decorative drills or unique rotor shapes, all for the purpose of creating a unique motorcycle feature.Practical and Helpful Tips: Automobiles
