4.4.4. Check of overall performance of the brake system

It is desirable to check overall performance of the brake system at special brake stands (similar stands are used in traffic police when carrying out checkup of cars). As a last resort approximate complex evaluation of the work of the brake system can be executed on the flat horizontal platform closed for traffic.
The inspection described below can be carried out only on the cars which are not equipped with anti-blocking system of brakes. If your car is equipped with ABS, then it is better to address on HUNDRED.
It is desirable that the platform was evenly covered with a thin layer of sand. Accelerate the car without loading (in salon only the driver) on the first transfer to speed about 15 km/h. Sharply press a pedal of a brake and do not release it to a full stop of the car.
Go out of the car and examine the brake marks left by car wheels. If brake traces of forward wheels are slightly longer back, and length of traces is identical at the left and on the right, then the brake system is serviceable. Otherwise repair system.

The following ratios have to be observed:
L lion. lane = L rights. lane.
L lion. задн. = L rights. задн.
L Lane> L задн.
