Now imagine living here in Seattle, where the roads are slick most of the
year. Anyone in a Sparrow/NmG ends up sideways before long.

My scariest one was an emergency stop on a freeway. Traffic piled up really
quickly and I hit the brakes hard enough to lift the back wheel off the
ground. Then, as I got near 0 mph, one of my front brakes applied more pressure
than the other. 300 milliseconds later, I was pointing 90 degrees to the left,
stopped in the middle of my lane.

Wow Jake!

That is a surprise! I had a hard stop on hot sticky dry asphalt due to
someone running a red light (that kind of stuff is everyday normal here in Austin).
Almost caused a pile up. I was the third car back and we all left squealing
black marks on the pavement. I stopped straight with all three wheels on the
ground, but it was hard enough to squeal the tires! I think we were going
about 40 MPH at the time.
I wonder if your brake proportioning valve is set correctly, or if the
terrain induced the tipping?
