INefficient R/R would be better ...
i.e. a higher resistance path to ground in the R/R would be an advantage in that it would help limit the current flow thru the stator coils when less than full output is required.
Perhaps " one way" is not a good Phrase..... as it really isn't. As you mentioned it is still a shunt....but effectively does a better job shunting the excess power, than the stock R/R. The red lettering is what I'd like to focus on, and it appears that heat dissipated within the mosfet R/ less than the stock unit. That does not necessarily mean that more heat is now present in the stator. But someone with more knowledge than me...could perhaps chime in as to the scientific explanation here....
