But That's the Point Corsair you're not slowing down suddenly. If done properly your using enough throttle to arrive at the bend at the best speed to get round it without having to scrub off speed with the brakes thereby saving energy by not converting fuel to heat. It also saves on pads and tyres! In the good old days of drum brakes it also avoided the dreaded brake fade and if our defensive driving assessor who is an ex Police instructor is to be believed puts the vehicle in a nicely balanced state to get around the bend safely and smoothly.
Cacophonix ta for the video I can almost smell the Castrol R.
