Nevertheless Petrolbonce, Spies' calipers DID overheat and stick in practice, and Crutchlow's were likewise shown glowing red hot - both 2 of the heavier guys in the field. When you're taking about the tiniest fractions of a second in performance differential, then greater mass and higher load transfer will make a difference. And whether that difference is 27%, 9% or 2%, there will be a point at which braking efficiency will be compromised. It's Physics 101.
