    i searched around and could'nt find anything so i figured i'd ask on here does anyone know how i can run front and rear brakes off the pedal and still use a staging brake wich also has its own resivour i want to use a wilwood prop valve so i can adjust the brake bias more to the front to prevent the rear from locking up so does anyone have a diagram or have expierence with a similar setup??

    It sounds like your askin bout line lock, AKA roll control. Is that right?

    EDIT: He did say for staging, so I assume its for drag racing.

    yes its a drag car sry for not stating that up front

    no i'm getting a CNC inline staging brake wich kinda acts like a linelock in a sense (push the pedal and then pull the lever) the harder u pull the more pressure goes 2 the rear brakes i figured out how to run the brake lines i just need to know how to set up an adjustable prop valve so i can have more braking power to the front to prevent the rear tires from locking up

    So you want to lock the front and have the rear brake power determined by a lever that you pull?

    Well for me:

    The master cylinder has 2 ports, so 1 goes directly to the front brakes, the other goes to the back but has the prop valve inline. You want un-restricted flow to the front brakes, and restricted flow to the back brakes. The removal of pressure by dialing down the prop valve for the rear diverts pressure to the front brakes. This system is the same for hondas as it is for american cars, so maybe googling a diagram would help you too.
