Now I know how much brake I can use.....you are in trouble. And by "you" I mean the cones.
Yeah, whenever I do a ride along, I am surprised how hard people slam on the brakes (like Sunday in a Corvette). I am working on smoothness now, but maybe I need to also work on hitting the brakes a little harder. Maybe it is not so much I don't brake early enough, but I don't brake hard enough. I'll give it a try.
Slamming and squeezing hard are 2 different things. If you pay closer attention, I bet they are squeezing hard.....at least that's what you are supposed to do. [;)]
Slamming the brakes will make the car's balance go wacky......plus you use up the front tire's traction pretty quick (remember the traction circle).
