The modern automotive brake system has been refined for over 100 years and has become extremely dependable
The typical brake system consists of disk brakes in front and either disk or drum brakes in the rear connected by a
system of tubes and hoses that link the brake at each wheel to the master cylinder. Other systems that are connected
with the brake system include the parking brakes, power brake booster and the anti-lock system.
A clutch is a mechanical device that engages and disengages the power, transmission, especially from driving shaft
to driven shaft.
Clutches are used whenever the transmission of power or motion must be controlled either in amount or over time
(e.g., electric screwdrivers limit how much torque is transmitted through use of a clutch; clutches control whether
automobiles transmit engine power to the wheels).
