[DML] Re: Brakes broke..



I put a 50/50 on my car by accident and I haven't noticed any 
problems with it. However, I have locked up the brakes doing some 
emergency stopping tests and did notice the rears locked before the 
fronts in a straight on panic type stop - something I have never 
experienced with a D before and something to remember to avoid a 
slide if you are braking in a turn. I intend to go back to the 
factory setup or put an adjustable valve in at the next brake job.
