"drag" Braking Initially...

Recommended Posts

Why not, with initial but light braking, only apply pressure to the rear brake system...?

Now that most vehicles have an ABS/VSC brake pressure/flow electric solenoid valve system wherein the front brakes can be kept from actuating, why not ALWAYS have only "drag" braking initially? Anyway only as long as only light braking is required?

"Drag" braking can be a GREAT aid in adverse, slippery roadbed conditions, and seemingly no detriment otherwise. The instant a certain braking "high" threshold is reached the front brakes are brought on-line.

Might even help to even out the wear rate of the front and rear brake pads and thereby provide an economic advantage to the owners.
