How often have we heard "the brakes failed", when really it was "the brain failed".

Taking it further, we ought to add in tyres here, as 1.6mm tread is no way to get good stopping power, even if we do have top notch brakes and reactions.

Who is in the 3mm camp for replacing tyres? Personally I see that as important (perhaps more important) as running upgrading brakes. Particularly as I see cars out there with upgraded brakes with virtually bold tyres, what is going on there?
