That's why when you step on the brakes the car pulls.one way then straightens itself out, then drifts the other when letting off the pedal. The restriction slows the fluid to the wheel, then holds the fluid at the wheel longer.

90%? No, not even remotely lol.

Um, are you under the impression that all brake lines are equal, or that I've said that? Or that I've said they have to be equal?

If there was any measurable pull due to a 1/16 of an inch difference in brake line length, you would end up in the ditch if you applied the brakes with air in the line.
You've never driven a car with a serious brake line fault have you? lol.

The point isn't that 1/16th of an inch can matter abstractly, its that when you REMOVE 1/16th of an inch, it will matter.

You are half right, half wrong because you didn't specify where the air was.

If you had actually taken an ASE test, you'd know the tests are quite descriptive and specific.
