Your probably right. Most cars dont suffer surge on the road, but get them on track with long high G corners at high engine revs and they will suffer. If you are serious about track days youl need to have your sump off and fit some decent baffles.
Yep - i also had this same problem(?) it was before i replaced my brake pads also. When i would enter slip roads going onto dual carriageways at great velocity, often long sweeping bends when flat out both the hand brake light would come on and the stop light! scarey stuff! get the brake pads changed and itl stop. Also, its important to get em changed as when mine was doing this i tried to stop with the steering wheel at full lock and it nearly didnt! arrrrg!
The light will go off when the pads are replaced not necessarily because the current pads are worn out, but because using the thicker new pads will "push" the brake fluid back into the reservoir.
If the brake pads are not worn out, just top up the brake fluid. Its normal for the level to fall slightly as the pads start to wear, since more fluid will be retained in the brake caliper rather than in the reservoir.
