What is brake fade and what causes brake fade?

This phenomenon known as brake fade can be quite unexpected and lethal and I would hazard a guess that 1 in 4 cars are likely to experience brake fade to some degree. Brake fade manifests itself by a spongy feel on the pedal and little or no braking force. Do not confuse brake fade with bad brakes or a mechanical fault as it applies to brake systems in relatively good condition.

How to lower the engines compression ratio

Reducing the compression ratio is required if you want to run a high boost supercharged engine. High compression NA (naturally aspirated) engines are quite efficient but when adding forced induction you want to lower the compression ratio.

The compression ratio has a dramatic effect on an engines performance and the problem of knock, (where the air fuel mix prematurely ignites) is controlled to a large degree by the compression ratio.

Throttle bodies

It is time to blow open the world of throttle bodies, see what they are, how they work, and what effect they have on performance. Typically the most common modifications are around the exhaust systems and induction kits, however, you should also consider the addition of high performing throttle body to your vehicle.

In this article, we’ll cover all that you need to know about throttle bodies, throttle body conversion, benefits, problems, and replacement costs.
