I don't see how the master cylinder can bias to the rear.
The bias is engineered into the calipers themselves via the difference in piston sizes between front and rear calipers.
Note on the 930 the caliper housings and brake pads are the same....smart design.
But the pistons for the rear brakes are smaller in diameter and therefor apply less force to the rotors and less bias while operating under the same line pressures as the fronts.
Simple hydraulic theory.
Hope someone will enlighten me if I am wrong and the quote is real.
