    has anyone else noticed when the have a hard launch from first gear that there e-brake light comes on until the car levels back out. my buddy told me that what he thinks it is is the brake fluid is just shifting in the reservoir. wow that spelling really doesn'tlook right.

    I had the same problem and it only happened when it was really cold outside. It is most likely the fluid level. Easily fixed with new SS brake lines, hawk pads, drilled/slotted rotors, and some high-end fluid purge. :)

    yes i noticed it that
    and turned it off
    my tire pressure was fine tho, well maybe 2-3 psi off, but thats about it
    unless it was cause i ran through some rough roads in a okay amount of speed
    if not i dont know why it tripped on tho
