Re: Will this make any difference???

Which bits of hose are you talking about? I'm pretty sure it'd make SFA difference to braking....a hose is a hose lol.

Re: Will this make any difference???

the biggest gain you'd get is that if you did a fiar bit of rally type offroad wotk, the braided hoses might not rub through as easy.

other than that there just for dick value.

Yeah, they will only make a difference for track use as the rubber hoses tend to heat up and expand, whereas the braided hoses don't have this problem. Hence brake fluid pressure is consistent (if that makes sense ) But they look cool!

Hmm do you know how much they are?

I have braided on the front. It takes a little sponge out but you can feel the ABS more. Good idea. Make sure you get good quality, cheap stuff is very nasty.

A master cylinder support (to stop firewall flex) would probably make more of a difference.
