Repetitive braking occurs coming down hills. There are some long steep hills over here.

Personally, I don't prefer power anything because I associate that with bigger heavier vehicles and it just plain adds complexity. Also youngsters tend to rely on them and have no clue that they actually do still have control of the car, just requires more effort. On the other hand designers have great experience and have developed these servos to give the driver improved response and feel.

Yup, if you want to go down hills fast, disc brakes are the answer.

I expect to descend hills in the gear I would need to use get up them.
Takes the load off the brakes.
I do it with disc braked cars.

I think the find complexity argument distinctly unconvincing when it's about servos.

The risk of a fluid leak at the servo is very very small compared with the inherent fluid leak risks.

If air leaks into the system, the worst that can happen is you revert to original brake levels.

The "More effort" argument falls flat on it's face once you face up to the fact that human performance and limitation knock it out the ring.

Any CPL holders out there please?
If so, please will you dish the dirt on HP&L?
