thanks for all the help so far. we'll try to get the brakes working in the afternoon for my maiden voyage tomorrow night. Camaro super street, tacky 4/10 med banked track. 3 wheel or 4 wheel brakes? we are going to install a proportioning valve. More front or more rear brakes? approx. percent? all we have had is rainy day after rainy day in the southeast. every practice day rained out. Me with no car experience, nor my friend helping me. All of your help might make me a little safer out there. Other than ride at the back, be patient, and get seat time, does anyone have any useful last minute info for us. Thanks again, Steve

you are gonna wanna run almost all rear brake, i think 3 wheel brake is a crutch and dangerous because you cant stop very well and it will make you wanna spin out if you hit the breaks to hard. I have racing pedals that i have 18 turns for adjustment front to rear and i run about 4 turns from all the way rear break on a tacky track. If it wants to push the nose when you hit the brake then add more rear. If it gets the tail too loose when you hit the brake, add more front. Do this till you get it where you like it
