Chevrolet Tracker Front Brake Rotor
About front brake rotor
A brake rotor consists of two discs for the pads to rub against, as well as a ribbed shield for heat dissipation between the discs. The friction between the pads and rotors will transform rotational energy into heat, bringing the vehicle to a halt. Most of them are flush-mounted discs. Both drilled and slotted rotors exist as well.
What is the purpose of front brake rotor?
The rotors are the circular discs mounted to each wheel (two in the front and two in the back). Rotors should have been designed to transform motion (kinetic energy) into heat energy. When the calipers would press the brake pads together, there would be pressure from the wide surface area of the rotors.
How front brake rotor works?
Rotors will operate hand in hand with brake pads to halt the vehicle. When you step up the brake pedal, the brake pads of the vehicle will be squeezed against the friction-creating rotor. This friction will allow your vehicle to stop while generating tremendous heat, too. The rotors contain two iron discs that are bound by ribs.
