Was wondering if anyone has ever modified a stock proportioning valve to allow to shut off the passenger side front brake. I have an idea but not sure if it will work. It would have to be adjustable and inconspicuous, as the rules specifically state no brake shut offs. I have taken apart the prop. valve and taken all the guts out to save the headache of using numerous brass fittings to hook everything together.

To do it properly you need to make sure the piston is back in the caliper, and even then the pads will rattle around and rub enough to get hot and expand..

Better option would be to run organic pads on rf, or cut some pad of with a grinder and chisel.

I found out all of the above by experience on the rr of a paved car.
