    Good find Chris J.

    What's the Litton pedal ratio? Most aftermarket pedal boxes seem to be about 6:1, Hawk's is poor on that.

    Tilton in the Litton measures as 6:1 and had .750 m/c's fitted with the stock Scorpio brakes - no idea if that is right wrong or sideways or how good the pedal was as I can only comment on what I have removed not how it worked.

    I originally built my Corse I with this setup (Tilton pedals and Scorpio brake calipers/discs). I can describe them as barely adequate - slowed the car eventually with no real 'bite'. I've since changed to the Hispec setup from Craig with large disks (330mm I think) all round - it was transformational. Car now stops as agressively as needed with tire grip being the limiting factor once the pads have heated up (EBC yellow).

    I do remember talking to Mick (Catswhiskers) about brakes when building my car because he had Alfa calipers and Tilton box on his Corse - he told me that he installed a remote servo booster to improve performance
