The more weight off the quicker the package, when your racing for money the cheesburger alone isn't going to cut it when the other guy is lighter quicker (no brakes or cheesburgers). Its weight and resistance. Who uses their rear brake anyway, i have never used mine once in 200 mph passes. In an emergency maybe but not all the time or ever unless i would have to and it won't do much. :beer:Please inlighten me on the zero rear brake deal. I must have missed something. Whats the difference between less cheese burgers and having rear brakes. Baffold in Ca.
