Reminds me of the definition of insanity...

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome.

I need a licence to deal with high risk people like you.... Behave yourself or you are back in the naughty corner and back on those little blue pills again, don't make me report you tho the warden......

Back to the post
I had a look at the pedal, booster etc on Cruzn66 today. Pedal says power... Had a look in rhd Cruzn65 at pedal and booster to compare lhd setup. I see the rod from booster in 66 is like vertical flat bar. I don't see how the angle changes such that the bracket referred to earlier is required except for the ratio requirement.... Is that the only reason?..

Well I have just reread this post and I am more confused than before, although thats not hard to do Embarrassed

I have the setup that I posted on page 2. So it seems that its for an automatic car, so whats the difference if its auto or manual, I cant seem to see what difference it would make?
Also when talking about ratio's, what does it mean to have a 4 to 1 ratio?

Cheers, Neil.

I asked a few blokes from the club who know what i what Brian Mc said he has bolted them straight up. So Im none the wiser as well. One hand suggests the pivot attachment is required and the other says they should bolt straight up. The video on the Kentucky Mustang kit is one such example...

See the 3:15 minute mark....

Glad it's not just me thats confused.
With the brake pedal ratio it's the difference between the pedal pad center and master cylinder pushrod hole to the center of the pedals pivot point. So basically the pedal is 4 times the pushrods distance from the pedal pivot point.
