If you wanted just a reduction.

I would run organic pads on rf. And grind pad away making the pad area smaller if you needed even less.

does your rf lock up ever? I thought that 3 wheel brakes might be important, and prepared some organic pads for it, but never felt the need to use them last yr.

I do the same..just grind the pad on the right front..it'll look like a waffle when done,only problem with this is on my car that side will grab before the left front..not sure why,so i drag the brake a few times and overheat the right front a little,that makes the metallic pad on the left front come in.

id say 4 wheel 3 wheel brakes only make it harder to avoid an accedent. the if you need to stop suddenly you are more apt to spin out. but i dont use the brakes in the turns anyway

I built my car with a shut off for the right front. It comes in real handy when I need a parking brake. I never use it while I'm racing. I use the balance from front to back to set in the corner entry.

Seems to me that reducing brake pressure on one side or the other is a crutch. One that can cause some serious trouble when you need to get the car stopped straight in a hurry. JMO.

Run a large brake line to the caliper you want to work less.

The size of the line doesn't matter. It about how much fluid is displaced at either end.
