    get your brakes looked at, mine are very good, you had to pull the handbrake,, then somthing is very wrong with your brakes.

    What Clomp said!

    Do not drive your car another mile until your brakes are sorted!! Might be wise to get towed to the garage even!!

    I won't go into the what if's.........

    problem with ABS is people that dont go out and find out how they work, you need to plant your foot keep it planted and steer.

    most people plant thier foot hear the abs pump and take the pressure off the pedel to stop the sound resulting in the abs turning off.

    Brakes should be fine on the Vec, mine even stopped well on an emergency stop in the snow last winter. As above, strongly recommend getting them looked at before you drive it further.
    If the abs is working, you should hear the pump come on and feel a pulse on the pedal, just keep braking and it should stop well.

    It is a very weird sensation if its something you've not had before.
