Been driving the sauber c9 in the group c championship, wondering why i could never quite get on top of the brakes, just done le mans and realised: the brakes are design to slow the car down from 230+ not 180! Should have been obvious really!

so what was happening when slowing down from 180? the breaks would lock? they'd be too cold so loooong breaking distance?

Any recommendations to mitigate this?

Yeah basically, all i did was brake earlier, never getting to 100% brake pressure.

230km/h is not fast

He's talking about mph...
