Brake parts selection info

I found this thread on a pro touring orientated website. These cars are pretty much all front engine Camaros, Mustangs, and larger US muscle cars. BUT the information contained in this thread is extremely informative and most of the math and many of the examples can be extrapolated to a mid engine layout with a little mental manipulation.

There is a lot of very good discussion on master cylinder and caliper sizes including spread sheets with current production parts and their cylinder sizes including Wilwood, Bremo, GM, etc. There is plenty of information on pad friction and examples of pad manufactures friction numbers and how they relate to brake system design.

This is a long thread but as I say I got a lot of information out of it. It could be combined with the calculators I have attached.
