ok guys ive got stock clutch slave and stock milano front and rear brakes...the problem is..my project REQUIRES after market pedals and box..im going to run a reverse swing setup EG the masters are INSIDE the car above your feet

what i need to know is what size of masters should i run?..the setup i snagged off ebay came with 3 7/8's masters(1 front 1 rear 1 clutch).....i wasnt happy with the "stock" master on my gtv6 but am fairly pleased with the 24mm pulled from a BMW

any input or links to figure this info out would help me greatly


the setup i picked up is an old howe...same as coleman, afco, tilton, willwood, us-brake...same masters too

The size of the MCs depend on a shitload of factors including Center of Gravity Height, Tires, size of brake discs, size of pistons in calipers, pad compound, desired feel in pedal and so on and so forth...

Not so simple...

Mats is right. Pedal ratio as well. No booster?

Pedal ratio is the distance from the pivot point to the booster/mc link compared to the pivot point to the pedal.
