You run your brake bias all the way to the rear and the gages are equalled out...Does this mean a)I have a more pressure relative brake system in the front(like maybe angles and such are increasing pressure) OR b)I simply have the rods in the master cylinder for the front longer?

They are both 1"...does that mean the rod is longer in the front one?

On my brake setup, If i crank it all the way to the rear, the adjuster binds up and i get more equal front and rear. If i turn it in one and a half turns, it will be at the highest rear pressure to front pressure ratio. I also have run the M/C backwards before.

You know Jeff who used to be at GRT told me they set em up with a quarter inch longer throw in the rear mc...to setup brake bias to the rear. Of course their mods werent always the best for roll steer.

We had to mess around a lot with the throw on the master cylinders to get the split on the gauges we wanted.

What kind of split do most of you start off with on tacky? Just looking for a general idea...I realize every car will be different depending on suspension, driver, etc.
