im assuming the idea is the brake lines dont expand while braking thus enhancing braking, plus im sure they look cool

I believe you are correct sir. Plus they last much longer I've heard.

By any chance do you have a write up for it? That would be a nice addition to the thread!

Got these also.. Definitely notice a difference when you eliminate your Brake Booster with these on...  Laughing

Yuuuum. I want. How's the braking? Is it a little squishy? Or super stiff?

You have to press much harder...not worth it for daily driving.
For racing, it's better because it eliminates the booster (could fail)
