    Default tuning boxes and brakes

    i had a crd2 box fitted last night and for some reason, the brankes seem to have gone quite spongy. it wasnt like this before, but i cant see why the box would make a difference (maybe cos im going faster )
    any ideas?

    It is probably because you are using the performance more. I found this on mine, I think the 1.9 brakes are not very good anyway, but the GSi 3.2 set up from LMF soon solved the problem!!

    i have the same problem with mine you just need to stamp on them a bit harder to get the brake booster to kick in then you get thrown up against the windscreen

    brake assist, it senses sudden sharp braking and applies more force.
