    Brake line route question

    I am running my brake lines now and have the front lines mocked up with the stock brake line material. I will change to stainless when I am happy with the route I chose. I ran the rear lines up and out of the master cylinder, my front line I ran down and out of the master cylinder. Is there any problem running the brake line turning down exiting the master?
    Thanks

    Not sure what the problem is but the 90' fitting leaving the MC points down instead of up.

    No. Orient the fittings however works best for your planned brake line routing. No picture showing here either BTW.

    Thank guys, I didn't think it mattered but wanted to make sure.
    The pictures look great when I pull the thread up, not sure what's going on. Not sure it matters that I have a Mac?

    Pics are up now! That should work fine... no issue to hydraulics as to which direction it goes.

    Under-steer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and over-steer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and torque is how far you take the wall with you.
    -- Jacques Schnauzee "World Famous Racecar Driver"

    "If you can make black marks on a straight from the time you turn out of a corner until the braking point of the next turn, then you have enough horsepower."--Mark Donohue

    No issues with up/down/sideways... but one thing to keep in mind is future serviceability.
    It gets REALLY busy in that space a little later in the build. If you have to replace a master cylinder down the road give consideration to the access to the fittings.
