Manual brakes VS power brakes. Manual brakes, or power brakes with NO boost assisting, which are basically manual brakes then, can be adjusted up where the pedal travel is minimal. You can get good hard pedal almost immediately. As soon as booster assist is applied the pedal travel increases. Sometimes dramatically so. Yes or no and why? EDIT: The question is do boosters cause more pedal travel?
