Has anyone ever tried the nylon brake lines in the Speedway catalog? How did they work? I'd think they would save a lot of work.

They work great until you get wrecked and your control arm or wheel gets into them. I have family that runs them on an IStock. If your super careful in routing them away from hot objects and things that could cut them in a wreck, you should be ok. The only thing I don't like about them is the mushy brake feel. The nylon lines are going to stretch or swell under pressure, and I don't like to way the pedal feels.

The steel brake lines are the way to go. The nylon lines do make the pedal spongie.
Most parts stores sell the steel lines in sections as long as about 4 ft. If you run the lines yourself, bend the line around a piece of tubing. The tubing will keep the line from kinking.
