BTW: There are (or at least used to be) quite a few engineers on the board (like, myself for instance). Be sure you're specific about what is opinion, theory, and empirical data.

And if they don't reduce braking distance, would you not agree that there is the same amount of flex in the system? Afterall, you're moving the brake pedal the same distance, the hoses are no longer giving, and there is no more normal force on the rotor than there was before. Think about it.

As for the large amount of engineers on this board, I'm well aware, and quite used to peer review. (ie thick skin)
