A part to possibly improve brake feel on Mazda GJ?

Wanted to see what technical guys on this forum think about tangibility of foundations for a supposed improvement provided by this part. Mastervac brace is not available for GJ, but brake pedal brace is...

How the hell hard are you pounding the brake pedal?

if you follow the link and scroll up, the pictures are more-or-less describe the forces at play and what braces do. I know text is in Japanese, but looking at the pictures should be enough

If you need a brake pedal brace then you are either road racing professionally or you are driving horribly wrong on the street.

Mmmmm... for those that are inside a tank: thread question was about potential of the above part to improve brake FEEL. As in F-E-E-L:

noun: a sensation given by an object or material when touched.
synonyms: synonyms: perceive, sense, detect, discern, notice, be aware of, be conscious of


How do you think manufacturers improve brake feel of their cars from generation to generation? What makes our cars have a "mushy" brake feel that they have currently?


The tickerguy and solar365 on this board seem to be technical types. Would be interesting to hear from them

That bracket will make your wallet feel much lighter.

If you want to ask about mushy brakes them maybe try actually stating that?

Common knowledge, stainless braided brake hoses are the #1 way to directly improve brake pedal feel.

Adding a brace to your brake pedal will do NOTHING to improve brake feel.

Carry on.........

let me ask you in return, Mr. CoarseKnowledge, what is the difference between car mechanic and car engineer, and why former can't be the later? Allow the question and its intent to sink in first, before responding

1. my wallet is heavy, I doubt this brace would make it detectably lighter

2. "Mushy" is a brake feel. Mushy brakes can still stop the car effectively or even more effectively than non-mushy brakes. You seem to be confused as to what a "feel" is and "actual measurable improvement" is


Lastly: explain to me why the brake mounting point is braced from the factory then if it "will do NOTHING to improve brake feel"? AutoExe's brace just strengthens that factory brace.
