I understand the M3 thing. This is exactly why I'm looking for a M C/R/3

As I say with the right stuff at hand I could have probably torn it down and put it back together and had everything working fine, but yea the whole no brakes thing is definitly a new sensation, lets call it Brake Fade to the max.

I made friends with a dude with a beuatiful "pearl" yellow lamborghini, and saw an orange lotus elise along with other cars...I am too wondering if I should get a m3 or elise .. they both are around $55k.

On a side note, when you watch professional driver's foot work when they are coming down fast straights, you almost always see them tap the break pedal a few times before they reach the breaking zone. They do this to 1) check for break pedal pressure 2) pump the breaks up so the pedal catches right at the top so they can drive as deep as possible into the turn. Just something interesting if you haven't noticed before
Very good tip!
