<VV> Disk Brake Effort

That increases the travel and I'm just about out of travel as it is.  The only 
option I see is to use power assist or live with the effort.  This is the only 
car I've ever driven with non-power discs.  It has 13" disks all around with B 
body front calipers and old Trans Am rear calipers.  I figured the excess travel 
was due to the volume of fluid required for the calipers.  Am I wrong?  I've got 
nylon/braided steel lines and the pedal feels solid.  My Malibu has the same 
calipers and lines with power assist and it stops great with "normal" effort.
