recently bought a 95m, when i drive it for about 15 minutes on the street, the brakes feel like they stick every time I take off from a dead stop. Yesterday I was about to take off from a parking lot and I couldnt back up brakes were locked. I was basically doing a burnout so waited 10 minutes and I was able to drive for another mile when I felt the car hesitate to keep running forward do to brakes sticking or locking. Has anyone had a similar problem? any ideas or advice would help

front or rear brakes? any idea?
maybe the big ol "set screw" in the rear was tightened too much...

I've had issues with my rears locking even after lubing the slider pins. It's probably time for new hardware. The only way I can avoid it is by not setting the parking brake. If they stick I have to back the rear piston out and reset it with the hex key.

in my case it seems like the fronts are the issue, but ill keep doing more research.
