: Hard Braking...Pedal seems to stick?

Last track day I had, there were a few times that I had to really hit the brakes hard and fast to avoid hitting the car in front of me. When I hit them, it seemed the brake was pulling itself in. It almost seemed like it was going to get stuck at full brake but then, it released. The brakes were not soft.
Does anyone know what this is and how I can correct it. The last thing I want to do is mess up other peoples cars due to a mechanical failure. Thanks.

If the V has brake assist, that would be it. Upon sensing emergency braking behavior (rapid rate of brake pedal depression and, in some applications, rapid lift from throttle), the brake assist will actually further depress the pedal, as to facilitate full deceleration. So, if the V has brake assist, that's what you're feeling. Really don't remember if it has it though...
