I think some of the magic is that under full brake load there is a near 50/50 weigh balance.

Stop and weight! A 50/50 weight distribution is not optimal
Having this weight in the back naturally uses all of the tires more efficiently during braking, instead of overloading the front tires which is what tends to happen in a front biased car.................

With more weight over the rear axle, its obvious that there is going to be more traction. Thus, the car can put down more power without spinning the tires..................
Fun cars that reward precision execution.

Some people like the challenge, and the engagement.
