Rear disk bleed fail - proportion valve removal

Want some new struts? What brand springs to buy? How much camber to run? What brake pads? What's the best setup for your situation....

Willwood has some good info on piston sizes and how it will affect travel and pressure. I used their info to hone my expertise when it came to the Valenti Modified race car brakes.

Yeah, getting the hydraulics set up for a brake system is all math.

Here are some pictures from my build thread that show how these masters work. Probably good to have them in this thread as well.

This pic shows the difference in bias springs for the Beretta vs Lumina master.

So, with all these brake masters being used, which one will give the best braking power for a stock set up?

Stock.

You could go to a smaller piston to get more pressure at the cost of more travel...but there would really be no point.

They have better braking because they have better brakes not just a different master.
