Toyota FJ Cruiser Front Brake Rotor
About front brake rotor
A brake rotor comprises of two discs for the pads to press against, as well as a ribbed support between the discs for heat dissipation. The friction between the pads and rotors would convert rotational energy into heat, which would bring your vehicle to a stop. A lot of them are discs with flush surfaces. There are also drilled as well as slotted rotors.
What is the purpose of front brake rotor?
The rotors are the circular discs which would be connected to each wheel (two in the front and two in the back). Rotors would be designed to turn motion (kinetic energy) into thermal energy (heat). As the calipers would squeeze your brake pads together, the rotors' large surface area would create friction.
How front brake rotor works?
Rotors would work hand-in-hand with brake pads to stop your automobile. When you would step your brake pedal, your vehicle's brake pads would be compressed against the rotor creating friction. This friction would enable your vehicle to stop while also creating a tremendous amount of heat. There are two iron discs connected by ribs in the rotors.
