How many of you guys running 3.5" skinnys on the front are using a proportional valve to try and get more braking on the rear tires? I am having some braking issues with short shutdown tracks.
what brake setup do you have? are you using the stock prop valve still?
saw the vid,wow!!! that looks like shadyside nc, are you using braided brake lines, have you blead the sys real good? looks like the wheels on the right side of car locks up, maybe. make sure there are no bushings in the control arms loose front and rear. check the k-member mounting bolts make sure its not moving.
Iwith chrysler master its valved 70-30 from factory. i changed the lines around for more braking on rear than front. alot of tube cars are like that. weight of car is 2370 lbs, 56% on rear 44% on front
I am kinda leaning on installing it on the rear lines and just removing the stock PV all together.keep in mind pressure and volume are two different things. on the ford master cly we normally put the valve in the line that feeds the rear on the fox body stock sup 3000-3300lbs
Yeah I hear ya, I just want to make sure I fix my main problem. If I dont fix it, it will come back.I know it's not helping with your braking problem but your car will stop lots faster and straighter with the parachute deployed especially at the short tracks. Toss the laundry! :-D
alot of guys run 2 adj valves 1 for front and rear, along with brake gauges in the car you can get the perfect braking you need. total cost of the type setup is around 150$, not bad in my opinion.
as for the calipers draging, yeah generally stock prop valves act a 60/40 bias i believe and also act as pressure vales to maintain about 2lbs on the calipers or wheel cyl. , i forget all that stuff lol so i could be off a bit.
