Response to Front end lock-up

Hi - I'm basically new to this site and I don't want to create a controversy or anything. (OK -- I do....)


You guys must drive like sissies!

ALL X1/9s lock up the front brakes under hard breaking -- add a little gravel or any kind of bumps or less traction on the road and it might not even take hard breaking.

The best solution to this is to add a proportioning valve in the line -- I've posted on this before (years ago).


I run the front calipers on both ends of my race car for a little bit extra but then you lose the handbrake.
