How to check your brake pads

Grace Moryan


The most important feature of any car is the ability to stop with little to no problem at any moment. However, over time, the brake pads on your car will experience wear and tear. It is important to make sure the brakes of your car are functioning, especially considering spirited driving on a track or the street.

There are certain signs of a car that signal you need to change your brake pads.
  •        It takes longer than usual for you to stop 
  •       When pressing the brake, your foot goes down further than normal

Here are some tips from us at DeCuzzi Tires on how you can check your brake pads:
  • Look through the wheel
    • You can look through the wheel of your car without removing it to see the brake pads. If the pad looks very thin, you will need to replace it. Some brake pads have wear indicators, which means that when they are almost gone it is time for new brake pads 
  • The amount of brake dust
    • Brake dust is the little specks that appear on your wheels. When your brake pads are in good condition, there is a lot of brake dust; likewise, when your brake pads are almost used up, there won’t be as much dust on the wheels
  • You will hear a metal sound
    • Before your brake pads wear too thin, your car will make a metal sound. This sound indicates you need to change the pads before they wear too thin.
  • You will feel it
    • Often times people will be able to feel the wear and tear of their brake pads when they drive. Their steering wheel may vibrate or feel off. If you sense any differences from your normal driving conditions, you may want your car to be checked out.
Checking your brake pads once every six months is crucial in maintaining your car. Replacing them can prevent your car from other internal damage and can even save your life from an avoidable accident.

Introducing the "DRR USA Hall of Fame"

By Carrie Larsen


DRR USA, Inc. is all about creating family memories through our award winning ATVs.  Owners Lou and Kim had this idea in mind when starting the business and it remains their goal today. Over the years, riders and their families have expressed so much joy, success and fun by racing our products and we want to share those experiences in our new "DRR USA Hall of Fame."

Through your nominations, DRR USA, Inc. will select one former DRR rider or family of riders every month to be featured in our Hall of Fame. We want to share countless stories and experiences through racing, and give credit where it's due. The Hall of Fame's purpose is to also inspire current young riders as they hit the track, and for them to look up to those who were once in their shoes.

If you know a rider or family of riders who rode DRR ATVs growing up, we'd love to feature them for an entire month. You can even nominate yourself or one of your own family members! Whoever you'd like to submit, please send their name, email address and what year(s) they raced to social@drrusa.com, or message us directly on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/drratvs/.

Once someone is selected, we will send them our DRR USA Hall of Fame Questionnaire. When it is filled out and returned, our Social Media Coordinator will write a feature article about them and post it to our website and blog.

Thank you for helping us draw attention to these amazing riders!

Tire Pressures and Speed

Grace Moryan


When conquering the racetrack, it is important to think about how to adjust your vehicle to be in top condition. A very important part of the race is the pressure of your tires. At first glance, it might look like one size fits all, but the differences in pressure can change the way your car drives on the track. Here are the top tire pressure tips from DeCuzzi Tires:

               Smoothness of the Track

Some tracks are just flat concrete while others have twists, turns and bumps. No matter what kind of track you drive, there are different tire pressures suited for varying terrains. The more pressure a tire has, the higher and longer it will bounce over bumps. Bumpy tracks will require lower tire pressure because it will be easier to maintain control over the vehicle.

               Temperature

Some tracks are outdoors and are subject to change due to Mother Nature, while others are indoors and kept at a consistent temperature. Here are the recommended tire pressures at different temperatures:
  •         Below 60° high pressure. 
  •        60-90° medium pressure. 
  •        Above 90° low pressure.

Number of laps per session

Often times, race tracks have a variety of laps and sessions available to their customers. Depending on the amount of laps in the race there are different recommended tire pressures.
·        5 or less: high tire pressure. Increases in temperature cause increases in tire pressure, so it is important to have this in mind whether it is a short race or long race.
·        6-12 laps: medium tire pressure
·        12+ laps: lower tire pressure, especially when you have around 20 laps.

Be sure to treat your tires right to make sure they last long and help you win the race. After all, your tires are what help your car move, so it is important to highly consider how they affect your maneuverability.

ATVS: Let the Family Ride Together

By Grace Moryan


When the sun is shining and there is not a cloud in the sky, families often find themselves wanting to do something together. Things that may come to mind are going to the movies or the pool; however, after a while, you may be wondering if there is anything you can do with more of a thrill.

Luckily, we know just the thing that you can do outdoors and even bring your kids along: All-terrain Vehicles (ATVs). At DRR, part of our goal as a company is to bring families together and help them spend time together doing something they love.

ATVs, also commonly known as four wheelers, are something the entire family will enjoy. Your kids will love racing each other on them and you will love the fact it gets them away from the television. Here are five reasons your entire family should invest in ATVS.
  1. It gets everyone outside: When it’s a nice day, haven’t you noticed you have the urge to get up and do something? ATVs provide your family the perfect way to gather everyone and go out for a ride through the woods. You’ll be able to sightsee alongside your kids and have memories going through the trails together.
  2. Your kids will think they are best thing ever: When it comes impressing the kids, they will think ATVs are the coolest rides ever this summer. Remember when you first got a bike, scooter, or a skateboard? An ATV will surely trump all those things in levels of awesome. Your kids will believe they are the next best thing to Lightning McQueen.
  3. They are made to conquer any terrain: It doesn’t matter if you want to take them on a trail or on a sidewalk in the park: ATVs are made to do it all. You don’t have to worry about them getting ruined wherever you use them, which makes them relatively low maintenance and easy on the wallet.
  4. They’re Safe and Easy for your kids to Learn: You may hear stories of kids being injured because they fall off of their ATV, but did you know that they are relatively safe when parents and children are well informed? You can do research on what size ATV you should buy for your children and teach your kids to handle them properly. We even have our own sizing guide on the DRRUSA website and we will be glad to help if you need any assistance. They’ll be ready to conquer the racetrack in no time. You can check out our website: http://drrusa.com/
  5.  It’s a good way to mix it up this summer: Most people have been to their local park a million times, but how many have activities can they continuously rotate? Riding on an ATV is a good hobby for your kids to add onto the list of things they love to do.  

When looking for things to do with your kids this summer, consider buying an ATV. It’s an investment your entire family will be sure to love when the weather is nice and your itching to get up and be active.
