    we just bought a gliin gun metalic colour 2 months back

    i though the problam would have been solved....but it still is there

    when it lock brakes car feels like flying in air.....

    only solution is ABS....nothing else

    why is that?

    installing batter brakes or drum is not a solution....as this model wieght ratio is not good with brakes

    as told above by a brother......whole body shifts forward......only ABS can solve it....but the brakes performance will be lost a bit as controlling brake will be needed to ABS every time

    just change the stock general tyres...ith softer tyres...80 % of the problem will be solved.....no skidding will be there.....no neeed to go for fancy solutions.

    yups try it hope it works.

    but my suggestion is change the tyres immediately

    coz just like urs i had the same prob in the beginning that

    the tyres locked and skidded badley.

    but after changing them the problem has dissapeared like it

    was never before. even when the car is empty it doest skid

    on grippy tyres

    bye the way u wll feel u have a smoother and more

    comfortable ride
