    Dear Community,

    In my hobby project which is based on VW Polo I want to do the following:

    1. Remove brake booster entirely,
    2. Connect the brake hoses of the master cylinder just to front wheels. I want to do it by using two outlets for left side brake and two outlets for right side brakes.

    The aim is to get a quick and harder braking and to some extent compensate the effect of missing brake booster.

    I am not sure what effect could this have on the brake pads displacement and wanted to know if this approach would work?

    BR

    It’s called manual brakes ..
    Much akin to manual steering
    Not fun, NOT quick and requires alot of muscle to operate.
    If your looking for performance, your actually going backwards.
