I am not sure why you mistakenly believe that I am trying to degrade your brake performance, nor am I sure why you believe you need an RSX MC to make your brakes "better".this car is not used only for drag, it's for track use. good brake setup is essential.
I will shoot some pictures soon. Thank you for your repy anyway.
Ok so a booster is definately non linear, so I dont know what you are refering to there. Manual brakes are linear: linear increase in pedal pressure = linear increase in line pressure. Vacuum boosters are over the place, they add compressible slop so part of your pedal effort and travel in the beginning go towards compressing vacuum booster components, as you compress them further more of your pedal effort goes into braking. The vacuum booster itself is non linear as far as assistance goes, especially if your manifold vacuum is varying, as can happen when engine braking, braking under power, or simply using cams with high overlap, all of which can easily happen during racing....I assume "better braking" means more linear pedal feedback for racing, which means he will want a booster.
Correct, ive installed in other cars 1" , cars brakes really good but in EF i love DC5 MC with that big Brake booster.the rsx booster appears to be smaller diameter, but sticks out more.
I assume "better braking" means more linear pedal feedback for racing, which means he will want a booster. easier to start braking, and responds much better to light touch. However, it probably feels "numb" after 50% pedal, and cant really tell if you are pushing enough.
Id recommend going to a proven integra Type R master/booster setup and enjoy the extra braking performance. the ITR setup is proven to be very durable and capable of supporting all the aftermarket big brake upgrades with minimal, if any, trouble.
Im using front Legend 2 piston calipers and EP3 rear calipers. what i said in the first time, i did this for to improve brake system and i woulnt want remove it just for Intake manifold.

"better" means different things to different people.... Be more specific what "better" means to you in regards to brakes and specifically what you hoped to accomplish by putting in an RSX MC and booster.
And still no pictures.
Ok, language is clearly a barrier here, because I do not know what you are trying to say. Can you try again? Are you saying you want to have more pedal travel before your brakes lock?My english isnt my first language so i'd try to tell you what i fell with this setup.
with RSX MC and Booster , i got more "positions" for brake it without block completely brakes.
And with all these huge brakes and huge master cylinder combos you have installed, have you ever tried big brakes with a small 13/16 master cylinder and no brake booster?well, everything above doesnt matter , just i asked for intake manifold lool
I dont know what all honda racers do, or do not do, I havent polled all of them. However, I can tell you that there have been a lot of professional race cars over the years that have very sucessfully used manual brakes, because they can be controlled more accurately and precisely than power brakes, so they can stop faster.WHat you DONT find in honda's racing is booster removals and reduced masters. Because that is DUMB and purely a braking FEEL.
We are refering to master cylinders and you are comparing GSR VS ITRs.... which came with the same size master cylinders each year... So what is your point here?break down a legit Integra Type R and compare it to a Integra GSR of same vintage.
THAT is why many people go for bigger. Because honda did it and was VERY successful AND reliable while racing.
Ok Mattliston.... You should really try to not comment on stuff you dont know about. You are just wrong on everything here.My DX stock brake system will stop FAR faster than an identical DX with a smaller master and no booster. I will put money on it. a smaller means you are moving a smaller amount of fluid FASTER. BUT that amount does NOT translate into a FULL piston compression on the caliper.
bigger calipers, bigger master. Physics. Reasons. BECAUSE RACECAR!!!!!!!!!!!!
