The reading of the rules is a great point to bring up. There seems to
be a great lack of that so far this year. Hence why I haven't answered as
many of the emails as I usually do.
I would like to add to this discussion by noting that the brake system
has to be split either front/rear or diagonally. Any other way will not get
you through Tech. I am not sure if this is written rule, but its kind of a
common sense thing.
