When I take my foot off the brake of my car it jerks forward and seems to really want to go, and when I stop I'm really having some difficulty doing it smoothly.

I've seen people say that something needs to be reprogrammed? Taking it in to an indy shop down the street next weekend for an oil change so if I can get that done at the same time if it needs to be changed.

I've also seen people indicate that the stock pads are really "sticky" (what? isn't that what they're supposed to do). Or that there may be a problem in the differential.

Any advice? Thanks!

Jerk from standing stop isn't normal - that needs attention.

Smooth stop is really elusive in these cars. If you can do the golf tee mod, it'll help.

Real finesse and foot feel's needed to stop smoothly - it can be done.
