1A Auto is now offering TRQ brake parts, like this ceramic brake pad set.

Read our TRQ brake parts buying guide to find out why you should replace or upgrade your brakes with parts from TRQ.
1A Auto is excited to offer TRQ brake parts.
TRQ parts undergo rigorous testing to ensure their quality, fit,
and function, and can even be bought in kits to save you time and money.

Changing worn out brakes is key to having a safe vehicle and safe driving experience. On average, brake parts need to be replaced between 30k and 50k miles depending on road conditions, driving habits, and the vehicle’s type and weight. Working brakes in good condition allow you to stop effectively, which can prevent accidents, breakdowns, and subpar braking. The better the quality of the brakes, the better stopping power and driving experience.

It’s for that reason that 1A Auto is excited to carry TRQ brake parts! These replacement and performance brake parts are true to TRQ’s acronym: Trusted, reliable, and quality.

Keep reading to learn why you should replace or upgrade your brakes with parts from TRQ (fun fact: You can even purchase TRQ brake kits to save time and money).

14 Fun Car Audio Facts in Episode 5 of 1A Auto Talk & Tune

In this week’s episode of the 1A Auto Talk & Tune auto show, we reveal 14 fun car audio facts that will amaze and astonish. We also help diagnose a vehicle that has a coil on plug ignition causing engine noise through the car audio system.

So how did this episode go from an insider perspective? Well, I think it went pretty well overall, until the end when we accidentally combined two fun facts. This brought our total to 13, which if you watch to the end of the video, you will see. You know what though – we aren’t actors, we are a couple car enthusiasts making a video about cars, so these things happen.

Watch Episode 4 of the 1A Auto Talk & Tune Show

We have just finished episode 4 of the 1A Auto Talk & Tune show, and we answered more car questions than ever before! Keep those questions coming – because the more you ask, the more we’ll answer! Dan and I covered ABS brakes on a Camaro, recommended transmission services, HVAC repair, and why so many car manufactures are switching their beloved model names to letters and numbers.

After watching this episode, you may notice that there is an edit somewhere around 7:50. As much as we love to film these episodes in just 1 take for easy editing, occasionally we mess up and need to edit it. We’re human! The good news is that these mess-up’s always make for terrific outtakes, which we have been including at the end of each of the videos for your entertainment. We hope you love this episode, and feel free to give us some feedback!

Watch Episode 3 of the 1A Auto Talk & Tune Show

We just completed episode 3 of the 1A Auto Talk & Tune show, and it went quite smooth! Dan and I talk about intake manifold water leaks, 3000 mile oil changes, and the best features to have in a modern vehicle. Backup cameras? 10 cup holders? Automatic parallel parking? Traction control? What’s your favorite feature?

We also came to the realization that episode 2 felt a little stiff, so we did our best to stay loose in this one.  The cloudy day helped the glare on our receding hairlines as well, which we both appreciated.

Watch Episode 2 of the 1A Auto Talk & Tune Show

If you follow along with the 1A Blog, our Facebook page, our Youtube channel, or you know, the internet… You might possibly have seen that we have created a short, weekly, question & answer show. We are officially done with episode 2, and we have decided to call it the “1A Auto Talk & Tune” show. Right now, it’s me and Dan.  We are typical “car-guys”. We own vehicles that go fast, and are always wondering what modification to do to our vehicles next. That being said, we may mix more people into this show over time to add a little variety. With so many automotive enthusiasts in the business, it would be a shame if you didn’t get to meet more of them right?

So how did this week’s episode go? Well. We talked about bear claws with exclamation points, destroying automatic transmissions, swapping automatics to manuals, and replacing shocks and struts. Looking back, we may have been a little too wordy this time around. Don’t worry though! We are learning incredible amounts from each episode that we shoot, and we are looking forward to answering more of your questions next week.
