On another occasion, he clearly demonstrated the fundamental principle of brakes by stripping the wing and front tyre off a car, jacking up the front, running the wheels at full speed and then applying the brake without releasing the accelerator. Result? Brake disc went from grey to red to yellow to white in less time than you might imagine. Principle? Brakes turn kinetic energy into heat. Lots of heat.
