Nicolaki: What braking method lengthen the brakes life? Either a long light braking or either a short heavy braking?
I try to brake smoothly; Strong enough, but not for longer periods, if possible, to give the brakes a few seconds for cooling in between. Has worked well, so far.
I avoid motor braking whenever possible; Maybe that´s
why I´ve still got the first motor, first gearbox and the first clutch
Twotterwrench: Use your feet like Fred Flintstone does. Get's hot, but saves money!
I´ll try that as soon as the rust holes
are large enough for my big feet!
Mx5_boy: Do you guys still use asbestos based brake pads?
Not here. (Germany)
