911 Brakes, Master Power Drum Brake Upgrades?
I am tired fo fighting the rear brakes on my 66 Nova and have been searching for alternatives. Disc brakes seem extremely expensive, and somewaht overkill. I found these drum brake upgardes and wondered if anyone has any experience with them?

Going up in size of drum will require an adjustable proportioning valve just like putting in discs, whats wrong with the factory drums? I know the factory brakes are not the greatest but going with a slightly larger drum won't be a big performance increase. I would bite the bullet and get a disc conversion if you want some serious power in your braking system.

I haven't had any experience with the product listed in your link so I can't comment on the fit etc.:(
