Can anyone tell me how my car will react if I totally back off my RR brake. Braking in the straights??? Into corners??? With good fronts and LR would it want to spinout still?? LOOKING FOR MORE TRICKS thank you

if you want to shut off any brake it would be your rf the rear brake in my opinion are the most important to have if you jam on the brakes in your street car what happens ? the rear of the car comes up right well on your race car this will unload your chassis not to mention scrubbing all your ground speed

I've never heard of anyone blocking off the RR.
On the RF it seems like a love it or hate it deal. It will cause the car to pull left under braking and some guys like that, while others claim it just makes you spin.
An in the middle option is to plumb the RF into the rear brakes lines. The RF will still do something but obviously not as much as the LF.
I run 4 wheel brakes myself so this is all 2nd hand info.

Thank you Roller& Pinto, I was thinking it might set the car sideways better going in. I do not want the front to pull or just touching the brakes and it send me around either. Not allowed to have dual masters or adjusters [witch you probly know] Thanks Boyd55
