    Maybe you got lucky or I got unlucky but my fronts would always lock up before the rears limiting how much rears could contribute. I tested this with accelerometer, managed 0.7G when fronts locked,...

    Bear in mind I only added the bias valve to the rear line because I was up-spec'ing the rear brake capability and I wanted this capability 'in my back pocket' in case I went too far. As it has...
