If you want to hire me to measure the stopping distance, no problem.
My standard rate is $0/hour, minimum of four hours. Send your paypal
payment to:

Tell us all, bob, why I would want to hire you to provide data for your
own claims.

Tell us all, bob, why you won't provide your own data to back up your
own claims.

Ok, then hire someone else:

<any university with a graduate, mechanical engineering program>

You might hire me because I'll give you options and some discounts. So
there are three approaches: Good, Fast, and Cheap.

o One maximum braking effort at an indicated, 35 mph, with the data
recorded by an accelerometer
o Reduction of data to give the braking distance

o Toyota brake job with the charges pro-rated by unused brake pad/shoe
o Six maximum braking efforts at an indicated, 35 mph, recorded with
half in each direction
o Reduction of data to give the braking distance
o Toss the highest and lowest and average the remaining four

o Everything above but using the following sets Sumitomo tires on the
185/60R14 - smallest diameter
185/65R14 - closest diameter to OE tire
195/70R14 - largest diameter
o new tires are run for at least 1,000 miles to normalize their tread
before the test
o discount tire costs by any salvage value

Of course you would trust my results, right? Would you trust any of my
results? As pointed out before, you have an interesting paradox:

- calling for me to do a brake study
- suggesting that my results are suspect

If you want a brake study, I'm willing for a fee to conduct one. But
it won't be done for free as the time, energy and expense is not
trivial. Let's see the color of your money as you are so my bitch.

no, YOU hire someone else.

If YOU want to make claims about performance, then YOU back them up.  
It's not up to the rest of the world to back up YOUR claims.

You act as if simply because you say something, it must be taken at face
value--when nothing can be further from the truth.

You're happy to provide data that YOU like, while pointedly ignoring
data that you DON'T like--and then try to make that the rest of the
world's problem.

That's not how it works.  If you want to claim "no difference in
braking" then you have to provide data.

It was even funnier to watch you try to come across as erudite by saying
that "it braked fine" and "I let the ABS work, so it brakes fine".

Why? I already know the brakes and tires are working perfectly fine. I
thought you had questions.

I have but it sounds like there is only one FUD spreader who lacks the
will, means or intellect to come up with anything of merit. If you
have some facts and data, trot them out.

Now if you need to hire expertise, no problem and I don't care if you
use a 3d party or hire me. Just the real world doesn't support
freeloaders and parasites.

Well that is a lie as I've already referenced several sources and the
braking distance URL showing exactly what happens. I've bring outside,
credible sources and so far, the only one making unsubstantiated
claims is you.

Fortunately you are not "the world" unless your parent played a cruel
joke on your birth certificate . . . 'Elmo.'

Actually, I have brought both an NHTSA paper and a URLs discussing the
stopping distance physics with a calculator. I've also verified the
ABS works and the car stops as it did before. Still, we can start with
basic physics.

Will this be with or without calculus? By that, do you understand what
an integral is and how they are derived? Integral calculus means we
don't have to teach you how to use a spreadsheet to handle piece-wise

You are easy to amuse and my bitch.
