What is likely happing at 3/2 is that extra 1 at the rear is preventing some forward weight transfer under initial braking. Less weight on the fronts under braking means less braking force.

Remember, your brake balance settings is a sensitivity setting that determines the rate the brakes build to their maximum braking force, not an overall strength setting, so a higher number means slightly more force at a lower brake pedal pressure.

If you want better (shorter) braking distance, you want you front brakes to grab harder, sooner, and you really don't want your rear brakes bring the rear down at all.

So why is your name Forgetful again? I mean this reply only makes you look like the smartest person EVER.
