Other than that, they decrease performance since there is less area for friction to occur.

Slow down dumbass.

You can't drive it like it's stock anymore, if you haven't noticed already.

The only thing you can really do economically is get better pads, and adjust your drums in the rear.

Brake upgrades are a lot of $$$$$$$. There are kits out there to convert to better calipers and such, but look to spend well over $500.

It wasn’t my fault he pulled out in front of me and I hit the brakes, locking up 1 tire and I swerved to avoid killing this dumbass. He went into a driveway apparently to turn around and never looked just pulled in and threw it in reverse and out he came right in front of me

Ok, I retract my previous statement of slowing down. You're still a dumbass however. :tonka:

if you locked up a tire.. how are better brakes going to help? evidently you surpassed your tires adhesion to the road with your braking POWAH
