help with brake system

I need help with my brake system. I want to make sure its safe. I have an S-10 that's used just for drag racing. It has the stock power brake master cylinder , stock disk brakes in the front and a ford 9" with drums in the rear. I was thinking about doing away with the power brake master due to it needing vacuum and replacing it with something like a 67 vette manual master. What do you guys think? will this be a good combo? Will I need a proportioning valve?

I would not see a problem with your idea, I think you already have the proportioning valve covered running a duel brake system, disc/drum. Just plumb in the manual master.

I assume that this is a quick S10
so along with the master cyl. I would
also upgrade the stock disc & calipers,
it's no fun when you end up in the
stop pit at the end of the track.
Take care,
