Default M-tuned 1800 rear caliper bracket to use Sport brakes

Is anyone using it?

Any point using it with the Wilwood fronts if the car has ABS, hence can "auto" bias? Or maybe I have got it all wrong?

My understanding is that it makes sense on a non-ABS car to me but with ABS I was thinking it would be like pissing money into the wind with the increased rotor costs etc.

Thoughts?

The title is meant to say Sport rotors.

So why does it say brakes?

Don't quote me, but the rears need to be strong enough to lock up if the ABS is going to do anything. With my 1.8 rear brakes and bias set all the way back, I can't seem to get the back to lock. Haven't fiddled with it much.
