What brake setup is everyone using? I planned on going manual, with SN95 stuff front/rear. Someone mentioned that I should use the Cobra rear setup. What with the cars being so light, will it be a noticeable improvement over standard GT stuff?
I'm using the 84 Mustang master cylinder, no proportioning valve and everything else stock from my 89 donor. I had input from several builders (One, a pro who has built 10 Cobras) and they said that this setup will give excellent brakes with no need for all the elaborate setups unless you are racing.
We're using "96 GT front and rear calipers with FMS drilled and slotted rotors and a "94 Cobra master cylinder. We installed an adjustable proportioning valve in the rear line just in case. It's not on the road yet but, as Mumblerone said, these cars are 1k lbs lighter than what the brake system was designed for.
Almost forgot, we're also using one of Mike Eversons modified brake pedals.
