Sometimes a brake can be hard on parts with a heavy car and a big engine with big torque.

Also if your car has a hooking problem it may or may not 60 ft any better. It's hard to say until you try it.

I have seen cars hook better on a trans brake that would spin on the foot brake. Not often though, it's usually the other way around.

My car has always E.T. faster on the brake.
