And if any line breaks you can't stop!!!

I'd go for a dual chamber master at all costs.

However you want to describe it. The ones with 2 lines out of them (like most every car built since 1970 or so) so if the rear breaks, all your fluid won't run on the ground. With a single outlet master, no matter which line breaks, ALL your brakes are gone!!! The master will empty completely, so all the splits after the master won't matter.

Ya, the single chamner/outlet would work, but I prefer to be able to stop if say a rock smashes a hole in the rear brake lines. I can still race without any brakes (I usually just coast in) but would rather have some stopping ability to avoid wrecks. The only time I use the brakes is to avoid hitting the person in front of me. If I'm all alone, I can carry the speed through the turns without the brakes at all.

The main thing to keep in mind when picking a master is bore size. on mine I use a 1 inch bore MC from a 91 jep wrangler. this is on a metric with big GM calipers all around.
