HEY BRIAN: I have a 1938 Lafayette street rod that weigths 3900 pounds. Car was built with MustangII front end with nine inch front disc. Car burned front pads off shoes and eat up rotors. I bought a kit to convert to 11 inch rotors with big GM calipers and it works much better. This winter I installed residual valves in the lines, because my MC is under the floorboard. Works much better. Still a lot of foot pressure required, if you could go to power booster I am sure it would be better yet, but I do not have room with my present setup. If you go to WWW.MPBRAKES.COM there is some good technical info. Remember one crash and better brakes would be CHEAP. GOOD LUCK DAVE
