    Servo or no servo?

    Hi chaps,
    As Tetanus is in bits I thought I'd take a look at the brakes and I think the master cylinder and servo need a bit of love.
    And as the pedals are bit too far into the cockpit I thought I'd move them forward a couple of inches to get a bit for leg room and then I can drop the seat height a bit more.
    Anyway, I'm now thinking of fitting a floor mounted bias box, like the ones it 'kitcars' shh! But,
    Will I need a servo or not? Tetanus has cortina mk5 brakes front and rear, a manual box and a Zetec. A mk5 cortina weighs around 1200kg and I'm pretty sure Tetanus must weigh a tad less than that.
    Any thoughts?
    Also anyone have any leads on a cheap/good one

    rally design do one for reasonable money Professional Motorsport Parts, Spares & Rally Equipment from Rally Design , no servo as the brake pedal is the right ratio so it's not required.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    /\ Yup, twin cylinders will provide more than enough stopping power , will take a bit of getting used to after a servoed daily though. I'm stopping 200bhp/ton with unservoed m/c without any drama.

    Cheers fellas,
    Just what I wanted to hear. None of my other cars have had servos, I must be getting soft in my old age (driving a MPV now. Shoot me.)
