Residual valve question

My car has two separate masters underneath the floor of the car, below the caliper level. It's a Wilwood remote "balance bar" set-up.
The remote reservoirs will be located above the calipers.

Do I need a residual valve?

I figure I don't, because the reservoirs are 12" above the calipers, but I wonder if anyone here knows alot about brakes? I would love to hear from the brake gurus!

If they are all disk brakes and the reservoirs are for sure above the calipers, you won't need a resid vavle. If you have drums on the rear, install a 10psi resid vavle there.

The brakes are discs all four corners. One master operates the front discs, and the other master operates the rears. The two systems are operationally separate, just the actuation is connected via the balance bar.

Does this change things?

THANKS for the quick replies!

I can't get your link to work Frisco, even if I cut and paste?
