DIY YouTuber ChrisFix Shows Benefits Of Galvanized Brake Pads

With the world's largest automotive DIY channel on YouTube, ChrisFix helps people across the world with car issues.

Recently, the star highlighted the benefits of galvanized brake pads on Instagram, while showing how traditional painted brake pads can lead to noise, rust and dangerous braking. 

In his latest video, when a customer complains about noise coming from the front driver’s side wheel, ChrisFix investigates and shows that corrosion of the painted brake pad caused parts of the friction material to break away, resulting in noise and the need for premature replacement. He then highlights how an NRS Brakes galvanized brake pad, in contrast, offered superior performance and durability, especially in winter conditions when roads are salted for long parts of the year. 

ChrisFix shared that his goal is “to get these galvanized brake pads on all of my cars as the old pads wear. They will not rust and will last multiple winters, no problem!” adding that NRS galvanized brake pads are not glued or painted like other aftermarket pads.

Drilled and Slotted Rotors

There’s real science behind the location of holes, slots and grooves in today’s brake rotors. Plus, they look great too.

A brake rotor absorbs and dissipates the heat energy generated by friction. How well the rotor can absorb and then release it into the surrounding air will determine the efficiency and capacity of the brakes.

The design of the rotor determines how it can handle the heat. On vented rotors, the thickness of the plates and how well air flows through the vanes helps to transfer heat to the surrounding air. Curved-vane designs on some vented rotors help to pull air through the center of the rotor to the outer edge and act as a pump. For curved vanes to work, they must be mounted on the hub in the correct direction, just as a directional tire must be mounted on the right wheel.
