Stopping and starting is acceleration. I don't get your statement.It is not so much about acceleration as stopping and starting.
Sorry, but I find it hard to believe that being heavier improves braking performance. Quite the opposite actually.Heavier vehicles STOP better in the dirt, which allows deeper corner speed and less time lost when slowing for obstacles that require slower speeds.
Lets get a scenario going. Two TT's coming down a dirt road at 100mph.
TT1 weighs 4000lbs.
TT2 weighs 6000lbs.
Both slam on their brakes at the same time and come to a rest. They do this ten times and each time they both take 500ft.
TT1 wants to stop sooner than 500ft. Should he add 2000lbs to his truck?
I agree that better braking performance will equate to better overall performance.Makes sense when you think about it. Dragsters with good brakes will be fastest.
But I disagree that adding weight will increase braking performance. Nor is it the best way to increase braking performance.
