After an accident one is good.



Some knows but the leverage is not there. If 3 years never remove lug nuts before, its quite hard lolol
eh jom. Let's do this video. I help you video it - and considering how much lighter you are compared to me, you can demo how to remove over tightened lug nights.

jump start an electric car, hybrid car or new tech car
Uh.... you find someone to loan him one and he'll probably do it. HAHAHAHA

Last week, my daughter informed me, she was at stall, saw a man trying to remove a flat tyre for his female friend using the tools from the car. He tried and tried, then was about to give up. My daughter got to her car and took out steel pipe, walk over to them ask them try. The man smile, ah I need this, but the female looked stumped. Then the man attached the pipe as an extension and remove the lug nut. Then only the female friend say, oh.....hahhahaha

New followup video is up
I wonder how much difference will it be if both cars are using the same tires.

Initial bite of ori brakes is better but braking power very much remain the same after the initial bite. For aftermarket pad ( i used Trestor too ) very2, very2 inexperienced driver will say brake tak makan. This is much more evident for city cars.

What i love abt Trestor pads is that the hotter it gets, the better it perform. Of course thats until one exceed the limit which is very hard to do on a daily car.

I am curious as to why some brand of pads comes with some sort of backing plate material (fells like some sort of foam/silicone) but some dont.

What model Trestor are you using? I am using Trestor Blue Advantage, the older model. New model I think they drop the blue now called Trestor Advantage. Previous 3 sets of Bendix MK, MK Gold and MK Titanium. Trestor Advantage to me very much better since bite from cold. Bendix I need to warm them up first......lol

Not sure which model but the box is green.i doubt its the samle level as Advantage but better than ori pad definitely.
Been using it long before Advantage comes out.

I went down hill at bukit putus with the pad and it starts to smell but still bite. Thusbits sufficient for my noob driving.
Same pad on my BLM fade..maybe BLM brakes are not efficient in cooling.

I remember Trestor have 3 models, your green box means should be the semi metallic, same as the one in the test above....

I was at that test. The interesting thing between the two is OEM kicked in ABS almost instantly. Trestor didn't trigger the ABS that quickly.

Trestor has confirmed they are bringing back the blue colour. As for formulation I rmbr they said no differences.

Ya I would prefer two same tyres but at 55,000km which is why brake pads are changed, tyres are due as well.
As for the hotter it is, I think that applies for advantage, metallic plus not so but better than ori of course.

Brake pads grip overcome tire grip?
I can't wrap my brain around it. Why would better pads not trigger the ABS earlier but at the same time stop the car earlier?

It could be down to better tire grip. Last time when i was on BS EP200 for my Waja, its very hard to trigger the ABS in very wet condition. Now on cheapo Apollo, ABS is trigger happy.

Does the pad comes with the soft backing material glued to the back of the pad? That milimeter thick material could be the cause of lower initial bite as it can be compressed.

Or, u can find 2 similar vehicle with similar tires and all then test again....please...

This is due to the Giti sliding (wheel lock) so the ABS kick in.
