From the GRM Vault: Brake on Through

We’ve been writing about the dirty details of motorsports for 30 years now. Our featured article this week comes from the dark ages, before we started creating digital versions of the magazine. So we had to march back to our archives, pick out the magazine and then dig out the scanner.

Is there a way to get this clearer so it is readable? I would LOVE to see a redo of this story!

Thanks!

I'm curious to know how much brake pad tech has changed in the 18 years since David wrote this.

Also, no mention of ceramic compounds in the body copy with their positive and negative attributes. Our '97 Camry came new with ceramic brake pads so they were mainstream by then.

I want to read this but there is no way to make it bigger or clearer.

Reads fine on my screen - maybe try right-click, "open image in new tab". I just did to see what would easily work and BOOM! Big words!

But it does read fine for me in the forum window.

The scan is completely legible. If you have a smaller screen, hit ctrl-+ in your browser to zoom in (Firefox, at least. Not sure about other browsers).

In reply to Armitage:

Agreed. Easy enough to read as is.

We tweaked the title for this one so it's a little easier to find. Happy reading.
