Does having heated brakes always make it harder for stopping, i thought that racing cars pre-warm their brakes and tyres in the warm up before a race to improve the performance?
Recing cars wet and heat up their tires in order to get more friction with the ground in order to get a faster takeoff. Once the tire is heared, the rubber expands giving more surface area for the wheels.
