Does it have anything to do with the brand and condition of the tire, given that it is not a knobby from a wr250
Found the problem! Hahah yeah that probably won't bite enough.
In all honesty, knowing how to react when the front is locked up is a MUST in my book. What happens if you're going down the road and there is a big patch of sand and you have to brake? Or how about a slick spot on the highway because that accident up there, well it was caused by someone's engine blowing up! Yeah -- definitely a good one on you for trying these things out!
With many organic pads, it's best to let them gently break-in to the shape of the rotor, then you need to do some "extreme heating" cycles to get them to firm up and have the right bite down the line. I've lifted the rear a few times doing that! Only once ever for an emergency brake. None of this "6 o clock" stuff of course....
