I dont know if any of you find this but when I am braking steadily in the dry and go over a drain cover my ABS suddenly kicks in for a couple of seconds giving me a slight fright but then goes normal again. Does anybody else find this or am I just going too fast?:rolleyes:

Also why has the Leon got massive front brakes and yet titchy ones at the back? I know that 80% of the braking is done at the front but they just dont look right.:confused:

Yeah and if u dont have TCS u just wheel spin all over the place! Its real scary too! I did it the first time and thought WTF then i went around again and it did the same thing then i realised it was cuz of the man hole cover!

EDL is electronic differential lock..

if one of the front wheels is on grass and the other is on tarmac it should put the brake on the one thats spinning and just put all the power tothe one on tarmac

Got it to work on mine a couple of times.
It almost screwed me right up once. I was at a t-junction turning right out of a very narrow country lane. My left wheel was on mud and gravel, and my right on clean tarmac. The EDL did its stuff, and the power cut to the left wheel, but this made the car try to turn left when I was turning right!! Had to fight it to go where I wanted it to go!

I've noticed it most on surface changes or splashing through big puddles at the side of the road. Works quite well in those situations.
