Stainless Braided Brake Lines

Does anyone already produce these already for our Commanders, to replace the rubber brake hoses?

I've been working with a tubing company on a couple projects for my Solo II racer. I'm currently doing a 60k brake overhaul on our Commander (rear rotors, pads, fluid refresh and speed bleeders) and have the opportunity to have several sets made up.

Any interest?

One of those mods that can surprise you.
All rubber brake lines allow for a tiny bit of expansion even though they are internally reinforced.
So, a stock system has a bit of a rubbery feel with pedal application.
When SS reinforced lines are installed there is no expansion and once bled, the pedal response change is dramatic.....thats the surprise. You will be shocked at the pedal response.
For track use, they are almost a must for braking accuracy.
Many operators like this feeling on their drivers......I don't....a bit more offy/ony than I find necessary on a street vehicle, but that is only my opinion.
However, on my motorcycles, I like the much more linear lever response and this is a change I make immediatly after purchass.

Robby,

I value your experiences as one of the best resources on this Forum. Jeep5253 is the "Search Meister" and is also a great source of information. Thanks to both of you for giving out information both quickly and in a practical format.

If I see any post by either of you I figure that I will learn something.

Aw shucks Huey,
Thanks, that was nice of you.

Don't misunderstand, I know it is being read and mostly what I sometimes wonder is, am I formatting or explaining something in such a manner as to be understood by the layman, yet not talk down to those with a great deal of experience.

Often, before I hit send, I'll rewrite my response several times, all with the hope of giving something useful without inadvertently making someone feel their question has no merit.

Enouph hijacking....thanks all,
Rob

Rob,
Thanks for the explanation. That makes total sense. I would really like to find a source for these. Anyone have any thoughts?

x2 .. Thanks robby ,, when I first read the title I said why stainless !! then I knew why from robby's answer.

Question, do these lines run all the way to the wheels ? what about the flexibility needed for wheel travel?
