There are pressure differences between the two types of braking systems. Removing the valve would cause one of them not to work correctly.

If it were me, I'd take out the stock proportioning valve and replace it with aftermarkets to the front and back. That way you can dial the brake to the front and rear in (like a dual master cylinder set up).

Lizard's correct, you need some proportioning, but the stock set up isn't gonna be right for racin'.

Ok we just took the stock valve off, switched the front and rear hook ups around so they were backwards from stock and put a pop rivet stem in the rf line. We are running disk all the way around though.

I may still run the aftermarket valves but spent the $$ elsewhere for now.
