So I wanted I figure out why people used steel braided brake lines so I slamed the pedal to the floor...
Just wanted to tell everyone how stupid I am.....

He just wanted to further make this point.


I look at it as karma for screwing a guy here on some parts.

I'm just confused by what he did. If he stomped on his brakes out of curiosity and he blew up a brake line, that is a GOOD thing. That means he blew it up when he didn't really need it. Now he can put on proper lines that won't explode when a real emergency braking situation actually happens. But I'm just speculating. I can't yet translate yeti-eise.

I cant tell wtf this thread is really about... But, going through the vr4 this weekend I saw the rear lines were pretty rotten and cracked.

OEM 20y/o lines.. probably about time to replace if they're original.

that's what I read and it's a good thing indeed. A controlled environment 'stress test' is pretty useful in fact. Trying it on the highway would be stupid.

I had the very same problem, the rear right brake line exploted while I was on a trip, fortunately I could retur using parking brake, few months later was the front left the line that had the same problem. Other 2 are still waiting to be replaced.

Are you insinuating I screwed someone on parts because I have not done anything to anyone on here....

And I did the "controlled stress test" coming to a stop sign going like 3mph but stupid because I caused the failure...


This thread is just to show why you shoud test your system
And why I'm dumb ...by the way the line that exploded was a ss line

oh ok so it wasnt the lines fault then, it was because something rubbed against it or something right

You sure about that?

You may not have taken the guys money but it was still a dick move.

I already didn't like the guy based on his level of redardation but that post was the nail in the coffin. At this point I just make it an effort to not help or answer his questions. Honeslty I think everyone else should do the same, after all I need the information I have more than he does so I'm sure he'll understand me just keeping it.
