Default Parking Brake: Is there a separate shoe of is it just the caliper?

HI there, my parking brake has very little engagements - and after my last track day my brakes are toast lol (especially the rears). I've searched and can't seem to find out if it's a show inside the rotor (don't think so) or if it's a cable that attaches to the caliper and just applies a little pressure? (which is my guess).

thanks!

Where is @selzini ?

I can't believe so many people do this. Or, did the spelling simply get flipped and I wasn't made aware?

Sorry, but I was in Cherokee and just got back. Why didn't you take over for me, and educate one more under-educated speller?

Unless really egregious, I've basically given up correcting misspellings here. It's all too common to see the misuse of everyday words such as too/to, your/you're, there/their, etc. I still cringe a little each time I see it, but I am learning to move on, lol

It's an informal message board, not a publishing house. When we properly understand what someone means, we have been communicated with effectively. Give them a break, they’re still mastering the differences between three homophones.

Use acronyms regularly that many don't understand, but god forbid someone uses its instead of it's. That's the internet for you
