I've got a pretty good amout of lateral grip. When i'm autocrossing and i really get into a hard turn, and then have to get on the brakes, my vaccumm assist goes out...or at least that is what it feels like...my brake pedal is REAL stiff and 'high'...any suggestions??
my first thought is stainless lines and a full brake flush, but i'm not sure that will help my vaccum assit...need help.

Re: where did my brakes go??? (Charles R)

yep...going to different size or vented rotors is out of the question...i don't want to leave STS.
I'm running Mintex Red Box pads and i'm pretty happy with them...when i was shopping for pads, i looked at the HP Plus, Metalmasters, and Mintex...i couldn't find Metalmasters for my car, and i heard that the HP Plus pads were a bit dusty...anyway, i'm just recently heard good things about the RS-4s.
i think i'm just going to flush out the lines and put in some good fluid, and get used to the high/tight pedal...
thanks for the help guys!!!
