Yes I had a moment like that once too. Very scary. When I was a boy racer I thought it would be fun to drive really fast down Mount Sugarloaf. It has some seriously steep sections with winding corners and large drops at the edge of the road. I got half way down fine. Then the brakes faded and I spent the second half pushing the brakes as hard as I could, car not slowing down doing something like 100km/hour and desperately hoping there were no more sharp corners. Undies definitely needed changing after I slowly ground to a halt at the bottom.
