My bad I was just noticing the one rotor/caliper in front, even tho the rear dont have alot of stopping power it still should be there for some, of course if all he runs is short tracks with plenty of track at the end, then he is not getting alot of speed up.

Its "your track". Its short IMO. My track is HRP. Its plenty long. You passed tech in jeans on a turbo bike.
