What is the mysteries behind the CSP master cylinder for disc brakes???

Hi, I can't answer this question, but i have been trying to research and find out what m/c it is that CSP use.

Mattkab on here thought it may be a golf 8v one but i'm not so sure....

been looking on the ATE website, they list all the vehicle braking components with exact pictures of each item.

I do believe now that the CSP m/c are purpose made, the pics i've seen of them do not resemble anything i've seen before. the RHD m/c actually has 6 outlet ports and is suppiled with blanking screws!

We do know it is 20.64mm, but i did try a 20.64 off an Audi 80 (ATE) but i had excessive travel on the pedal. I am thinking now that the CSP unit probably has springing and pressure valves (to retain pressure in the lines for the calipers?) to suit.

this would probably justtify their asking price.

I know their stuff is of top quality, but i would like to know what is so 'special' about their m/c !

Angelo

I can hardly imagine its anything really special either, but they obviously did find the right part in some catalog
Smaller diameter (19mm) MC's do give less brake effort though and if your calipers are not humongous, travel should be acceptable too..
