So I like hi tech stuff, no news there. Latest fun was making carbon disc brakes for a car that happens to be the worlds fastest sedan....quite good entertainment.

Look at my gallery, lower right corner (link at www button)

And here you can see the toy in action

Enjoy

Yeah, they are pretty durable. The ones in the pic are made of the latest generation carbon available....it's got higher friction and better durability. Besides you don't really want to be pushing that car to the max for longer periods of time, it's a bit over the top in the long run ;-)

Hah... ok, as you say.
Got a friend who once told me he doesn't hear any diff between cables... they are all supposed to be the same(something about electrons etc.) Then I had him listen to my silver interconnects... kinda changed his opinion.
Now I gotta tell him carbon is not always the same either... the latest is supposed to be better ;)

Nah, there is a little more to it than it seems :cool2:

The newest generation is directional fibre carbon, whereas the former generations have been random fibre direction, the latest generations have much higher friction and higher hardness as well. It's also a matter of the damper layer that's used and how many of those layers....all in all, pretty much a very different matter :mrgreen:
The old generations were pretty hefty, the new generation is downright mean :rock:

I believe you it's mean. Any breaking distance figures?

Is this some sort of therapy? Aren't you bored typing it everytime you post?
Have you got a shortcut for it? If not, try AutoHotKey, it's capable of doing the job just fine ;)

I can't give you the exact breaking power figures for the brake in the pic as it is still in production, but what I can tell you is that it gets from 200 to 0 in less than 7 seconds :mrgreen:

Nahh...it's therapy....Magura :-)

A bit meaningless, some companies do not bother with official track record registrations.
An example: the Hennessy Viper Venom. Twin turbo 1000HP, 255 mph.
Cheaper too than some exotic brands, dug out from the graveyard by big corporations like VW.

Not quite so....AFAIK there is no SEDAN (as in 5 door car) that's faster than this one still :?:

Magura, next step is a carbon clutch.

No that was first step :mrgreen:

The fingers that hold the carbon disc are slot inserts or machined from solid ? Can't tell from the pics.

Hennessy also manufactures the fastest SUV, the SRT600 Cherokee outpulls any Ferrari. The 300C sedan is also available with the SRT600 engine. Braking a yank has never been a delight though, probably why you see at least 50 cars crash in any US movie.
And this thread is about brakes, right ?
(the 55 is nice, i like the Kleemann CLS more)

The spline that holds the carbon discs is machined from billet aluminum, a special alu alloy that is somewhat harder than the 7075T6.

I have only driven the E55 Kleemann, can't comment on the CLS.
