E-spec vehicles have seperate bulbs dedcated to brake lights. Snipping the RED wire turns your inboard tail lights into brake only lights. Instead of your inboard lights switching between bright and brightest, they will switch between off and brightest, IMHO a change more likely to get the attention of the person behind you.
Morning will tell if any warning lamps appear on the dash.
Morning came! No warning lights on the dash. I'm going to keep my tail lights this way.
