Sorry Chad, the 13s was a typo.. It a 13w I was told.. I'm curious about the hydrolic brakes myself... Good question!
I Cant wait to see the photos.. On my polini the front wheel has 2 brake discs on the front wheel and the one Domino Lever pulls both the brakes.. I kind of wanted to get one of these for the other blata and use it so I would only have one Brake lever for the front and back.. But now you have me thinking... I might just have to follow your lead and go hydrolic! Make extra parts... Wink..As for brakes:
I'm going to stick with a hydraulic setup. I'll buy the right stuff, that's not an issue. What I really want to do is setup the braking system with a proportioning valve. (Summit Racing Equipment sells them for around $50 bucks)
This way I can adjust the bias (meaning differential between front/rear brakes) on the fly. Doing it this way would allow me to use one brake lever only. Very cool as I'd be able to have only one job per hand.
I think it'll also aid in diving deep into a corner as it'll provide controllable stopping power to both wheels. On a big bike the rear brake is almost useless on the track for real stopping power. I always intentionally bled a little air into the rear brake so that it wouldn't lock up. This way I could just use the peddle to basically keep the bike tracking as I hammered the front when coming off a straightaway into a corner. Half the time my rear tire was about 3" off the ground anyways when doing this.
-None of this happened overnight. It took a long time to get comfortable with it.
My idea is essentially the same here only now it's consolidated to one brake lever only.
We'll see. It'll be fun setting this up. Thankfully I own a machine shop so building the parts to hang it all won't be a big deal.
As this moves along I'll post up photos.
