I was under-estimating the drag effect of my pseudo seized rear calipers, because of the stupid residual valve that i was unaware of...took me 5 minuts to remove it, 10 minutes to bleed the system carefully.

Wow...i think i have added 10mpg and 50hp on my car.

I rides smoother too.

I tough i could let you know...the valve is very easy to remove from the aluminum part that is bolted under the mc, but you need to leave it there after as there is a copper seal to hold it there, the valve cant be returned to stock usage, or may be very difficult to do so.

I know all this may sound stupid, maybe some lazyness...but at least, it is ok for now.

Thanks to the ones that told me about the residual valve.
