    The piston inside the caliper does not cause friction on the rotor, because it does not touch the rotor. The caliper piston presses against a brake pad against its shim(s) which apply the pads against the rotors. When you release the brake pedal, the caliper slides back when pressure is backed off and the piston seal will move rearward slightly by laws of pressure. As far as it shaving 1/10th of a second off your quarter mile time, thats just stupid.

    After more years than I can think of building cars I have never heard of it lowering your 1/4 mile times, that is just silly. And if some "kid" in auto class said so, you go ahead and keep believing him. In fact, why are you on this forum? Get his direct number or IM him about all your Honda needs as this site probably has no valid info for you.

    And in all reality drum brakes weigh less then the rear discs so adding rear discs will add weight and in turn slow the car down.

    This wasn't really a real question. Did you follow the link or read my last post?
