Almost killed a man

So I'm driving and some f**kin dumb@ss decides to take a left when I'm 3 seconds away from that intersection. I braked the hardest I have ever braked and felt my entire car vibrate.
Scared I might have damaged something.
Any suggestions to what that vibration/sound could have been? Or would it be normal on seriously hard brake?

As I braked the car vibrated from under me along with the pedals. Almost felt as if the driveshaft was shaking. But I don't really have a clue what that would feel like lol.
Thanks in advance guys

Sounds like the ABS kicked in which would have been normal.

So the rear rotor on the drivers side is supposed to have that chip look alike?

It's called ABS that's the wheels locking and unlocking. If it didn't have ABS you would have gone sliding

Anti-Lock Brakes. (ABS) prevents the tires from locking. Totally normal.

That "groove" is where they removed some of the material from the rotor to balance it after manufacturing.

It sounds like you car did everything that it was supposed to do, and kept everyone safe...

I've had someone pull out in front of me. Absolutely had to slam on the brakes. Car felt shaky and not smooth. Everything in the car flew forward. It stopped quick though. Did its job.

I've had to stop so hard that I've had ABS engage before. One time I have no idea how I didn't hit the rear bumper of the guy in front of me. I must have had like maybe 3 inches between us.

The brakes in Mustangs are pretty mediocre also. Imagine a car with good brakes and sticky tires. It's a whole new experience, like putting a supercharger on a car for the first time.

I find the option BBP brakes more than adequate for any street braking situation...even the stupid stuff. I've had to hammer them a few times on intense evasive at speed and I was given complete confidence they could do the work. frankly, I've had many Mustangs and this is the first one where the stock brakes didn't suck, and they all had the factory option for improved braking/suspension, if there was one was available at the time...and if not, I added my own.

...like my '68 with the optional FRONT disc brakes and 3 point "safety" belts...or the '79 Ghia coupe with the optional TRX suspension... or the 88 LX 5.0 with turbo coupe disc brakes out back, Lincoln fronts and an SVO MC...Ahhh, the not so good old days.

Original poster, I would suggest you go out somewhere safe and try some emergency stops to get accustomed to how your car behaves. Try some panic stops with turning to avoid an obstacle. A good high performance driving class will do wonders for getting acquainted with your cars handling characteristics. It can be pretty startling if you don't know what to expect. The more you practice the better your reaction in dicey situations will be. Glad you came out well!

Go out and do an autocross. You may think you know how your car handles and breaks but i guarantee you will walk away after the day able to push your car even further.
