Z1 Master cylinder brace installed.

Just put this on friday at the track between sessions. Gives a noticeably firmer pedal. Not a huge change, but noticeable. Highly recommend it. https://www.z1motorsports.com/brakes...ce-p-9538.html

no drilling, holes are already there underneath some plastic clips. I would assume LHD only.

Hm well I don't know how much firmer my pedal can become, or even how much firmer I would want it after installing the z1 ss lines the pedal is rock hard. Maybe I'll use my GoPro and record while I press the pedal to see if it flexes since I don't have a helper.

Bumping since im interested in this. Can anyone share their experiences after installing this part? Havent seen much mentioned about it. Thinking of pulling the trigger since Z1 has it at $88 and install seems pretty straightforward. Anyone think if its worth it?

Thanks!

I got one and installed it. I like it. It takes the play out of the firewall and gives the pedal a more direct feeling.

Oh it took a little while. Fiddling around trying to get the right angle. It's a tight space!

I've had the part since August, I've tried at least once a month trying to get the part bolted in. Its still sitting in my garage, I have to figure it out how to install still.
