What are the five advantages of disc brakes?
Asked in Brakes and Tires, Brake Pads and Rotors
State two advantages of disc brakes compared to drum brakes?
Disc brakes are not subject to "fade" which occurs when drum brakes overheat and lose the ability to stop, another advantage of disc brakes is that they tend to stop in a straight line unlike drum brakes which often "pull" to one side. Yet another advantage of disc brakes is that they self adjust by drawing brake fluid in behind the piston while it is common for the self adjusters in drum brakes to seize due to corrosion then the drum brakes quit adjusting then the brake pedal goes lower and lower.

Asked in Cars & Vehicles
What GM cars in or around 1965 came with rear disc brakes?
Four-wheel disc brakes were introduced in 1965 on the Corvette. Some AMC vehicles had Disc Brakes, and the Studebaker Avanti also had Disc Brakes. I know of no other American vehicles in 1965 with disc brakes. FYI, the 1948 Tucker had Disc Brakes as standard equipment. Only 51 examples were ever made.

Asked in Bicycles
Are disc brakes the best bicycle brakes?
Depends on what you mean by best. Disc brakes tend to offer the most braking power for a given amount of force applied at the lever. But a disc brake setup is heavier and has poorer aerodynamics than caliper brakes. And disc brakes wear faster than drum brakes, roller brakes and band brakes. Disc brakes are not as well sealed as drums or rollers, so performance will still be slightly weather dependent.

Asked in Brakes and Tires, Ford Explorer XLT
Do drum brakes work better than disk brakes?
No, they are inferior to disc brakes. Drum brakes were used from the beginning of the auto up until the late 60s. Drum brakes are more prone to overheating than disc brakes. Disc brakes also shed water much better than drum brakes which improves stopping distance in wet conditions. Disc brakes apply pressure more evenly than drum brakes thus improving stopping distance. Disc brakes are superior in every way.
