Yes, I know that the increased pressure is helping me stop better. That it why I increased it. The drilling lets the dust out and helps with cooling, resulting in much smoother brakes.
Drum brakes collect lots of dust, and it can be a problem. I have to clean out the drums on the car quite often because of the dust buildup. It causes drag, noise, and reduces braking. The brakes are always better after I clean out the drums, and it stops better too.
