Re: 15\" inch wheel on Rear SVT???
E-brake is supposed to be just that, An emergency brake. You shouldn't be pulling it to slow the vehicle down in normal situations. And your probably just needs to be adjusted.I have metallic pads for the front...with diple and slotted rotors. Why againts chaning the rear to disc when disc is better than drums anyway... even if i didn't autox the car.
Believe me i have pull the ebrake on icy day,, and it doesn't lock like it should.. now i have done the same with an SVT and the next thing I did a 360.
Yes, SVT's come with rear disc for better performance. The idea you are not getting, is that the brake proportioning is different from one model to the next. The SVT has larger brakes in the front than in the back. I don't remember what the size of the standard focus fronts are but you don't want the back to be as strong as the front. The front brakes are supposed to be doing the majority of the braking.the disc and pads are the one from focus-central.
If drum's are ok.. why SVT comes with rear disc?
Best way to do this is with tires.slow to any given speed in a shorter amount of time.
