I was wondering if any of you guys could give me any tips to improve my brakes. At the moment i have to use far too much pedal effort too soon to slow the car down to get it into the turns. I'm running twin 3/4 inch master cylinders & mintex M1155 pads & i also have plenty of leverage on the pedal (but i may change this to a cantilever design). Any thoughts would be welcome.
Thanks.

Try the bigger 7/8 or 1" master cylinders.

I agree with #28, change to a larger dia. master cylider, if you want to stop faster.

I agree with 28 and strokin but would like to ad this buy a BRAKE-GUARD system and you will enhance performance due to smoother braking.

You may want to try adding more gear, and let the motor and gear help with de-acceleration.

I'v got 1" cylinders in front and rear. I'v got good front brakes but lousey rear.I was told to run a smaller cylinder to the rear to create more pressure. Agree or disagree? Thanks.

larger cylinders, Brake Guards, and some Willwood Polymatrixs pads.
