Some people like them though.
If anyone has seen premium rush they know that front brakes are death.
I assume this is tongue-in-cheek.
70% of your potential braking power, if F&R are mounted comes from the front.
Much more if a FG only sports the Fr.
Attempting "just ride through" a suddenly stopped pickup truck may not end so well.
