    Default A question regarding the new civic.

    hello,
    i wanted to know whether the new civic(pakistan) has front 'ventilated' disc brakes or 'solid' ones?... cuz the international sites says 'front ventilated disc' whereas pk sites says only 'disc'..

    the GAP is the seperator mesho. the two rotors are seperated by a gap, through which air can pass. THAT is why its called a VENTILATED disc. air can pass between the rotors. in a solid disc, there is only ONE disc, not TWO discs seperated. i am not sure, but probably the rear discs would be solids, not ventilated.
    cross-drilled and slotted are, i hope, not confusing.

    @ mesho

    brakes with holes are crosses drilled

    brakes with linings are slotted ( not holes but slots/ducts to remove air dust water )

    brakes with 2 rotors with seperation in them are ventilated.

    therefore, the pics i posted of civic city are all ventilated discs ( front brakes atleast ); like the first pic posted by bilal29er@pw in his reply.

    the pic u just posted abv is ventilated-sloted disc ( it has seperation as well as slots )

    for detials read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disc_brake
    a copy paste is below


    The design of the disc varies somewhat. Some are simply solid cast iron, but others are hollowed out with fins joining together the disc's two contact surfaces (usually included as part of a casting process). This "ventilated" disc design helps to dissipate the generated heat and is commonly used on the more-heavily-loaded front discs. Many higher performance brakes have holes drilled through them. This is known as cross-drilling and was originally done in the 1960s on racing cars. Brake pads will outgas and under use may create boundary layer of gas between the pad and the disc hurting braking performance. Cross-drilling was created to provide the gas someplace to escape. Although modern brake pads seldom suffer from outgassing problems, water residue may build up after a vehicle passes through a puddle and impede braking performance. For this reason, and for heat dissipation purposes, Cross Drilling is still used on some braking components, but is not favored for racing or other hard use as the holes are a source of stress cracks under severe conditions.

    Discs may also be slotted, where shallow channels are machined into the disc to aid in removing dust and gas. Slotting is the preferred method in most racing environments to remove gas, water, and de-glaze brake pads. Some discs are both drilled and slotted. Slotted discs are generally not used on standard vehicles because they quickly wear down brake pads; however, this removal of material is beneficial to race vehicles since it keeps the pads soft and avoids vitrification of their surfaces.
