I don't understand what you're referring to sir.
Nvm I gotcha lol. It just bothers me that if I'm on my brakes for more than 5-6 seconds at a higher speed it feels like they are making a shudder sound

Looking for better brakes

"Nothing wrong with your brakes but you need more stopping power"
What's wrong is your brakes aren't strong enough!
Wasn't meant as an insult, I take stopping power very seriously...
I see several 700 to 1300 HP terminators with stock brake systems, and I'm thinking dumbasses...

But there's nothing like hammering on a car and then slamming on the brakes, with great stopping power. The brakes on the Porsche are unreal...

If you step on the brakes and feel the shuddering that's most likely ABS kicking in. If it is the case you have enough braking power.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

It's only when I'm on them hard for 5-6 seconds. Slowing down from twice the interstate speed limit. Which is 70.

Could also be that your rotors need machining, or they're worn out. Mechanic who took my car for test drive felt something similar, and he replaced all 4 rotors under warranty. I was told by my service advisor that on a brand new car the brakes are covered upto first 20k.

It might worth the shot if you take it in.. No harm done if they say nothing is wrong/can't be replaced lol.
