Hello,

Well, your comments on Goodridge lines were a little off-putting. So maybe that's why there is no enthusiastic response.

How many people here check their stock brake lines on a regular basis to make sure that the line is not coming off the fitting? Not many. So the fact that you should do that regularly doesn't sway most people. Then you post that non-adjustible, just-like-stock Goodridge lines can fall apart. Then you ask if people want adjustible ones that, sure you can tighten them, but you need to check them on a regular basis.

Well, considering most people don't do it anyway, what are the chances they are going to check the fittings that NEED checking.

Anyway, bad mouthing another product in the opening comment of your sales pitch is not the greatest way to gather sales.

Joel

Cool

The "re-useable" fitting on the SMC lines would only leak as you put the first press of the brake pedal and you would tighten them during installation, the crimped lines could go any time, but usually during a severe braking situation.
I guess if I had to worry about sales I would have to worry about my sales methods, but since I don't, I can call them as I see them;-)
Oh, by the way borla SUCKS and weapon r SUCKS! In case there is any doubt about my opinion (which like a$$holes, everyone has:-)

Hello,

True, you're not a salesperson. But you made it sound like you can't get the cheap deal either if not enough people jump on the bandwagon. I'm not saying anything about SMC since I don't know their product. I do see that they're sponsoring our track day at T-hill, so I like them for that

Anyway, now I'm sure many people want to see some reviews of the lines before the plunk down $40 more than the Goodridge lines cost - especially since the Goodridge lines are used by racers around the world (or at least, throughout the US).

Joel - willing to do a comparo if given both products

Hello,

Assuming these lines are at least comparible to the Goodridge lines, the answers to your questions are yes and yes, but a single stage booster and a booster bracket (once MRT or someone else makes one) will probably do more (at greater cost and complexity of installation, of course).
