    Hi Mark, with dual 0.7 Master Cyls, I have your current brake bias at 66-34% Front-Rear, still not great IMO.

    I have taken my own advice and purchased some extended pushrods for the 3 master cylinders in my pedalbox.

    Cheers man, I want to make body removal as easy as possible, that's why the reservoir's are fitted there.

    How far did you move the shifter back and can I ask what your height is?
