A delayed complete stop of a vehicle - how do I delay?

I started using Blender a week ago and now I’m working on a mining equipment simulation. I have gotten my vehicle to stop instantly, but I would like to know how to improve it in two ways:

  1. Make a delayed stop (using some sort of system timer?)
    An algorithm like: ‘reduce the speed by half every second and then when speed is really low then stop’ is what I’m aiming for.

  2. Is there an easy way to set up the logic bricks so that if the player holds the brake the vehicle will go nowhere?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Nevermind; I got it. :slight_smile:

LOL, that was fast. Glad to see you got it working :smiley:
