Racing 101: Jargon
DwD 0378: Racing 101: Jargon – What is Brake Pad Walk Back or Knock Back
On our racing 101 series, we often go over jargon that can confuse you at the track. In this episode, we start to talk about brake pad walk back or knock back. This can occur on many cars and be caused by several sources. We try to talk about what it would feel like on your car and what you can do to minimize its effect while on track. We also speculate on what can be the sources in your braking system that can lead to having this condition. Please fee free to expand upon our discussion, as we have rarely experienced this phenomenon on track. As a bonus, we also discuss a few other brake pedal related feelings that you may encounter on track and what the cause of them are.
