    I used to do that in Baguio. I had this wedge-shaped rock stored in the trunk, 45 degrees pa angle

    Minsan yung kotse ng kapitbahay ko gumulong ... tinamaan muna yung sasakyan ko then diretso sa ibaba ng kalsada. Minor lang damage sa bumper ng sasakyan ko, swerte at hindi natinag, pero na-demolish nung gumulong yung sari-sari store sa ibaba.

    yun brick bisaya for brake haha pangpigil ng sasakyan. handbrake lang katapat niyan. Pag alanganin lagyan ng kalso. or pag may gutter ipaling ng konti ang gulong towards the gutter para pag umatras man tatama gulong mo sa gutter

    Stress is force per unit area, and in this case, we are talking about the force necessary to keep a vehicle parked in an incline.

    Are you saying that an area such as the surface of the brake shoes (in contact with the brake drum) has more force per unit area than the cross-sectional area of the hand brake cable?

    Sometimes, deep scores get worn into brake rotors. This can happen if a worn-out brake pad is left on the car for too long. Brake rotors can also warp, that is, lose their flatness. If this happens, the brakes may shudder or vibrate when you stop. Both of these problems can sometimes be fixed by refinishing (also called turning or machining) the rotors. Some material is removed from both sides of the rotors to restore the flat, smooth surface.
