I believe that ALL fastener sizes are listed with their materials and torques in www.NewTIS.info. What may not be so listed is the wrench type - flank drive, flat drive, inner or outer etc.

A bad ground wire or cable limits how much power - current - can flow. It's a resistor when it should be a conductor.

Nope. Brakes are brakes and their effect is limited by the inertia and the rubber-meets-the-road interface. Study some physics.
