4 wheel disc with no booster?

I'm converting my sandrail to discs, its a really light car and they make conversion kits that don't have a booster, i don't have a power steering pump and its turbo charged so will they work good without a booster?

I do plan on getting a proportioning valve.

What is everyone thoughts?

Brendan

4 wheel disks will work just fine without thye booster. Many of the 60s Corvettes came that way from the factory. Depending on your cars front/rear weight ratio, an adjustable proportioning valve is a good idea.

Sand rails are rear engined, so you'll likely be fine with no proportioning valve. There will be some weight transfer from front to rear during hard braking, but not like front engine vehicle. You might even need a proportioning valve in the FRONT brakes to keep them from locking before the rear -- but I doubt it.
