Does this activate when you press on the breaks aggressively or just anytime you press the breaks?

There are two modes.... on very heavy breaking at/close to ABS initiatiion and less heavy (but still hard) braking. Contact the Tech/BPM for more details or Alex@Alpine for more details (I have the "very heavy" braking flash mode).

+1 100% correct and ANY coder can do it, its just simple coding such as wiper delete, yellow corner light delete, etc..its great if you track for the guys behind you

I wonder if cops might have an issue with those flashing brake lights. Almost looks like flashing lights on unmarked cars.

I find this to be very annoying on the track. Totally unnecessary - everybody going at a decent clip will be braking hard for every corner, I don't need a second set of brighter/flashing lights to remind me.

yeah i guess youre right I didnt think of that, there have been times where it annoyed me also...at other times when there have been wrecks on the Nurburgring its good I have it for some of the crazy inexperienced drivers behind me...it gives them an extra second to see im braking hard (possibly on a straight) and not to rear end me.. it gives me a warm and fuzzy for the crazies out there, but prolly a placebo haha
