MEASUREMENT AND REDUCTION OF ON-ROAD BRAKE DRAG

A new, light weight, front disc brake caliper design, referred to as a "3200 " series, has been developed for use on the new, smaller, front-wheel drive vehicles. Features include reduced rotor drag and optimum utilization of weight vs. strength. In addition to the new caliper, a transducer capable of measuring vehicle brake drag on the road has been developed and successfully applied.
