    Default How much disc drag is acceptable?

    I have noticed that there is a slight difference between the rear wheel disc/pad drag/bind (not sure really how else to describe it) hen the car is jacked up and you spin the wheels.
    After a drive the disc temperature is different to the touch.No burning smell etc, just one is hotter than the other.
    I'm not sure how much disc pad 'drag' is acceptable...
    Does anyone know?

    Cheers
    John

    Personally I would say none if it were mine, but I suppose its up to you... Any drag will lower feul economy, lower performance and wear the pads out so is BAD!
