    Yep, getting very frustrating to say the least....some of the racer's around here are joking about moving south in order to RACE LOL

    I looked at that kit/package as close as I could, very little info as to be expected but saw an interview with R. Sutton at SEMA or PRI, liked what I saw that's for sure.

    Keep us posted, race safe, thanks C4Racer.

    ya - I'll check back in here on a new thread when I get some track time and I will surely be in touch with Ron by then and will report anything I find out about future of the package. A lot of R&D went into it - I suspect at some point something is going to happen with it. I think COVID really created a big pause in that.

    Manual brakes work fine and give you a good feel of the road. I've been driving mine for 50 years with no issues.

    I have manual brakes on my 75 with a 350 & 4sp. Came that way from the factory. If you have the ass to push the clutch the brakes seem fine. They have worked fine and are reliable as is and I have no inkling to change them to power.

    When you changed over to the stock manual master cylinder, did you use a spacer between the master cylinder and the firewall? Also, did you use the top or bottom hole to mount your pushrod?
