    Has anyone used the 7" vac boosters that's available? I am pondering on going manual brakes but the 7" does interest me also.

    7" is the weak sister of boosters. especially, a single diaphragm.
    A double 8", and it'll be GTG..

    I wouldn't ponder a manual braking system. These cars don't stop well in stock form. Get the right booster and you will be really really really satisfied.
