IMO, it is a safety risk if one cannot modulate gradually to a full lockup. Again, maybe I expect too much.
For me, I have noticed that this reduced capability out back yields a longer braking distance (even though the rear is only 30% of the braking potential). I see this as a concern.
If you don't agree, fine.
