When you brake hard your front suspension compresses (brake dive), the double triangulation keeps the axles centered under the frame. With the compression the drag link flattens out and forces the steering wheel to turn. AS this is happening the track bar is trying to push or pull one side of the axle putting more down pressure on one wheel while trying to lift the other creating uneven traction/braking.
