We have noted the concern on the two kits regarding pedal pressure.  Both kits use calipers that have 2-1/2"Ø pistons, these usually work fine for manual brakes.  Both calipers are noted for being relatively powerful for their size and weight.  The caliper architecture runs from 2" to 3-1/4" piston size.  As we are about halfway thru the current batch of brackets for the heavy duty we will look to see if we can run a bigger piston caliper - but the issue here is plate offset - it will hit with the shallowest AMC spindle base..

In the mean time, my personal car (Trans Am with manual 4 wheel disc) runs a Mopar minivan master which has a bore of 15/16"; a normal size person can drive it, though a 90 pound teenage girl not so much...

...and I did not know about the coefficient ratings on the side of the pad - more research is in order here, thanks
