[DML] Re: Like new car braking

I agree. I just had the front pads replaced on my car due to my recent
bearing problems, and I made sure they *specifically* put DOT4 in the
resivoir! Though my car pulls a tad b/c of bad suspension, the brakes
feel great! I'm grateful because one night I was really tired, didn't
see the stupid, archaic side traffic lights in downtown KC and came to
a screeching yet fun, efficient halt. *drinks energy drink, shaking
hands* eegh...work is fun. :) I felt like Marty from BTTF1 in that
scene where he slammed the clutch/brakes on the open road and nobody
was there. Pretty sure I got the nice braided lines too.
