It will make the car turn easier to the left when on the brakes. (it pulls the car left) I don't run it. I know someone who does and he does very well with it, but he only shuts off the RF when the track is tacky. I'll stick with all 4 brakes myself. Easier to dodge wrecks that way!!

i would not run it on slick. i did on a big flat track and backed a car into the wall once. anyways, its a crutch. so only do it as a last resort.

We run them on the Super Late models to help them turn in at the beginning of the race when the track is tacky and we have a full fuel load of 32 gallons. As the track comes to us we go back to 4 wheel. If you do try it but the switch or valve in EASY reach of the driver. I am re clipping one of our cars right now because he was on three wheel brake and therwas a wreck infront of him on the inside and rather than let the car drift up he hit the brakes and it turned him left right into the other three cars.
