Slowing down too much when letting off Gas

Noticed a lot of times when I take my foot of the gas the car seems to act like I'm lightly applying the brake - feels a bit like engine breaking, I noticed it in 5th gear when taking my foot off.

Issue with induction maybe or braking system, something catching?

Might be perfectly normal with the fn2 I'm not sure

Cheers

Brakes could be binding, pretty common, especially the front calipers. Rebuild kits available on the bay cheap enough.

Have a feel of your discs/wheels after a drive, if any of them is warmer than it should be, that could be the culprit.

Try going into neutral whilst moving see if it does it then.. If so as above brakes could be binding

You may well have a bit of brake-binding on one or more wheels.

Try jacking up each corner and spinning the wheel to check. A tiny bit of rubbing with little or no resistance is fine, but if it is binding and difficult to turn by hand, the pads are binding on, probably because the runners are corroded...

The FN2 has a lot of engine breaking due to the light flywheel I say its normal. Most noticeable in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

Has the car been tuned? Could be the fuel cut a bit too aggressive.

Don't think it has ever been tuned before. I have no idea to be honest, everything seems standard on the car. It wasn't doing it previously though which makes me think it could be a brake issue or something else.

Obviously dont just grab the disc, lick your finger and quickly touch it, it shouldnt sizzle after normal driving, you will be able to feel the heat radiating from the disc and wheel if its binding anyway.

Pretty obvious discs get very hot, not sure why anyone would want to touch them. +1 for checking the brakes out - I had a sticking brake piston and the wheel was noticeably warmer than the rest.

Back brakes are basically cold after a long journey and front hot.

Also noticed like a whining noise or a noise like you slightly have your handbrake on when pulling away. Think it may be the rear discs or it might be the clutch.

Must say the transition going from ep3 to fn3 has made me paranoid haha.
