Firebird master cylinder adaption Q\'s?

Well... I have a boat load of parts and am almost ready to begin construction on the rig but I was wondering about my braking situation.

First Q- I was wondering if ditching the diagonal brake prop-valve and run the front/rear seperate sounded like a bad idea?

Second Q- Any of you guys running Monte Carlo/ Eldorado calipers in the rear? I am wondering if I'll have enough juice running the firebird MC? Also remember I am running something similar (as far as brakes) in the front.

I have a ton of pics, but I am waiting to get the project fully underway before I start to post. I can say that ditching the drums on the D-60 cut almost 50 pounds vs. the discs!

Thanks in advance. Brent

Thanks Scott, that is kinda what I thought too. I just hate the way they x-up the brake system. I am going to ditch it too.

I have the Firebird M/C, it works good. If you go with the Eldorado calipers, the Tracker/Sidekick dual E-brake cables work perfect. I can show you.

Yeah for sure I'll check it out Randy. I have line locks though so I'll probably just go with the monty's.
