Disc Brake

in what way is a disc brake better than the regular ones?

i mean to ask what are the pro's ond con's of using a disc brake for vehicles?

Just so that you know DISC brakes are regular brakes for the front on almost ALL cars these days.

The reason they are better than the old DRUM brakes (still used on many back wheels) is that

(1) they are reliable
(2) self adjusting
(3) easy to swap pads
(4) better stopping power

There's more but...

Good Luck...
