Default Remote Brake Bias Adjustment and Master Cylinders at Goodwin Racing

I've put together a kit that includes all the parts necessary to copy the cockpit-adjustable brake bias setup that I've ran in my car for years.

This allows you to adjust bias on the fly while driving. With the adjuster **** in its standard location in the engine bay, you can't make adjustments until you are back in the pits - so dialing in your brake balance for the conditions of the track and weather can take a few sessions of going out and then coming back in for adjustments - and that's half the day. Having this **** inside the car means I can make adjustments immediately while on-track, and usually have the brakes dialed in perfectly by lap 2 or 3.

Wilwood Brake Bias Combo



We have the proportioning valve separately, along with adapter fittings to fit the Miata, if you want to keep the **** in the engine bay:

Wilwood Brake Bias Proportioning Valve



And we offer the remote adjuster on its own for all of you guys who already have the proportioning valve. Note that you have to remove the **** from the threaded shaft of the proportioning valve to install this extension cable. If you purchase our combo package above with everything included, we remove the **** for you, but if you purchase just this adjuster then you'll need to do the removal yourself (can be done carefully with a vice and channel lock pliers, or you can cut the **** off with a dremel):

Wilwood Brake Bias Adjuster Extension Cable



Feel like your pedal got a bit soft after a Big Brake Kit install? Regain the rock solid brake pedal response that you are missing by upgrading to the Wilwood master cylinder with 1" piston bore. Our package includes fittings and lines for the bench bleeding process to ensure that your install goes right the first time!

<p>Does the dual master need an adapter for cars with 3 brake lines? (Non-abs?)</p>

I would highly suggest you treat the master cylinder kit as a master cylinder with mounting adapter and make the lines yourself.

You'll still need the 3-way you see there (round thingymabobber) and the joiner.

Everything for installation is included. The circular fitting in the photo is the "T" for your rear lines.

Hand-formable lines are included in the kit, and we've had plenty of success installing these with the included hardware. The kit includes everything needed for install, including more bits than any other similar kits on the market (we've included hose and fittings for bench bleeding to save you a trip to a few hardware stores in search of the right stuff). The hand-formable lines are a one-size-fits-all solution for a kit that needs to be configurable for several different brake line set ups among Miatas. Making your own custom lines which are full replacements for the factory lines is of course a much cleaner approach with less junctions, but not a viable option for every home installer.
