tap into the line and run a shut off valve under your seat or dash that you can reach from inside the car

Why not just cut the pads down in surface area. That way they cant grab as hard and yet they will grab to stop the wheel for the tech man. This way there are no lines or valves to run or hide.

the second option is far better, and legal.

I would run organic pads on rf, and then cut down from there.

If track goes dry slick for the main you could put in a diff pad to increase brake again.

If you do a line lock valve you still need to do it in the pits with the wheel off so you can pry the piston into the caliper or the pads will rub a little, build heat, and swell and drag even more.

We use old pads on the RF and also some how have managed to pinch the line to that wheel slightly!!

It still stops the wheel, however not nearly as well as it did before.

Electric line locks work great just flip the switch and the brake doesn't work. Flip the switch back on and your brake works.

I been running organic right side and fleet pad on the left side.I think I feel the same about shutting it off.Have heard others say you better be holding on the wheel when you hit the brakes with a 3 brake system.

3 wheel brakes is not the way to go.running the rf shut off or weaker only tosses the car if you have to get on the brakes hard going down the staight its gonna turn corner or no corner.ouch!!

I ran with 3 brakes for 5 years. after about one night you get used to it and its pretty easy to stop in a straight line. cant beat it on a greasy track for getting in the corner. you have to watch it when it gets dryslick, but like I said you get used to.
