I have a 1991 Camaro z28, v8. I was racing another guy on the streets, when we came to a red light, I was going about 80mph, I hit the brakes, and suddenly the car was braking very slow, the engine wanted to shut down, I had to cross two lanes of trafic and make a dangerous right turn to stop the car, if not a would had had no time to stop on time on the red light. Can anybody tell me why the car wanted to shut down, living me with almost no brakes?
