Low Drag Calipers

Do they make a cast iron master with the quick stage valve for taking up pad clearance on low drag calipers or do you just run a 2# residual valve and the corvette cast cylinder not to mention I'm running a universal disc/drum proportioning valve.I value your expertise,THANX

I've tried a 2# before and they still took a bunch of pedal to take up the slack. I wound up using a 10# RPV on those front calipers and had no problems. Check the RPV, alot of them are nowhere close to their rating.

Later, mikey

Why would you want to run a big heavy cast iron master cylinder?
