Braking

It’s just as important to be able to STOP that performance machine as it is to make it GO! …

The 60 MPH to 0 MPH and 100 KPH to 0 KPH braking test lets you test the effectiveness of your brakes and tires. You can even sort out alignment settings for maximum braking performance!

Like the accelertation tests, the braking tests allow you to perform braking measurements without taking your eyes off the road! Simply:

  1. Find a smooth SAFE stretch of pavement and steady the vehicle speed at 60 MPH.
  2. Once you see the traffic light graphic that indicates you have held a steady speed for the required time, mash the brake pedal and modulate to avoid locking the brakes.
  3. When the vehicle comes to a complete stop, the test is saved for review at a safe place/time.

Use the data gathered to measure performance differences between tire rubber compounds, brake pad effectiveness, rotor performances, and even the effect that temperature may have on braking effectiveness (i.e. brake “fade”). Compare your results to what the magazines are reporting for your car (in perfect test track conditions).
