Add velocity to that equation. Stopping from 80kph in a 2400lb car will be the same regardless of how much power the engine has.

I've had 5 people in my car and it affects braking a little.

The problem here is he's trying to stop from 120, not 80 - within the same stopping distance. At that point you slow down, or get bigger brakes.

I suggest slowing down, and leaving more time to break. If you get nailed for something at that speed lets just say insurance isn't cheap and trees don't move for cars.


Performance one step at a time.
