I read some where

that rear disk brakes only add 22% to the total braking with a front engine vehichle. If thats the case I dont see where it is an advantage over brake shoes that don't drag all the time thus giving better gas mileage!! maybe in all out racing rear disks would be an advantage. There is a cost savings here also... If all the above is correct
