Back about 1974, we had a gas crisis and gas went from 30 cents a gallon m/l to 37 cents gal m/l. One of the tips to reduce the drag of the disc brakes was to rock the steering wheel l/r to push the pads apart a tiny bit. I have no idea if it would work or what the effect would be. may look into it.

And don't we have a tip relating to this on this site?
I just checked. Not in 100 tips or 65 mods that I could see. Anyway the tip was to add a set of springs/clips (second set of springs/clips?) to push the pads away from the rotor.

I did a search. The topic is brake drag reduction clips. Probably should be added to the 65 mods.
