110% go with what makes you confident, no doubt. But, considering those milliseconds... having the rear wheel locked in a rough section is going to eat way more milliseconds just from friction before the suspension's willingness to move is even in the equation, especially considering how little suspension movement it takes to catch up to even a pretty low engagement hub. For anything not a DH bike, I'd think spending time on braking technique and experimenting with pads and rotors and tires and such to help prevent unwanted lock-ups, before sacrificing suspension and pedaling _consistency_ with a low-engagement hub. Even for DH, I'd pick an O-Chain and mid-to-high-engagement before low-engagement only, for the **consistent** suspension **feel** that will give me **confidence**.
