Fix’s channel on YouTube has more than 5 million subscribers and within one week the video titled “How Brake Pads Are Made” was viewed almost 1 million times. The channel is one of the most popular with consumers who want to learn how to repair their vehicles.  

“This was my first time making a video like this,” said Fix in the video. “Normally, I do videos on how to replace a brake pad.”

The 21-minute video shows not only the manufacturing process, but the testing procedures performed on a dynamometer and a test vehicle. The video also shows a salt spray test that simulates two months on salty roads in just one day. 

“I want to thank NRS Brake for making this possible,” said Fix. “They shut down parts of their factory so I could film the video.”
