    4. humber hawk ,custom 4 pot billet callipers front on295mm

    custom discs,rear ,cosworth discs/caliipers.servo on front,bias valve ,no servo on rear,works great (medium hard pedal)
    so many combinations...so litltle time,money,etc
    All also depends on bores and leverages / volumes of m/c to to slave size.

    Here's couple of overviews I did a few years back

    Not another straighforward answer either I'm afraid. It depends how far modified your monococque is and whether there is a possibility at some stage it will require BIVA.

    For BIVA it will need a dual circuit braking system ,split either diagonally or front to rear . I would NEVER rcommend using a servo on just one circuit on a car so you would need either to leave as a single circuit if BIVA is NOT a possibility , or if it is then twin single line servos , a single twin line servo ( horrendously expensive at around £250 + ) or my prefered method of using a dual circuit m/c on a bulkhead mounted servo.
