[quote quote=12992]Now why is a dual m/c needed? I know ford has a single m/c for power disc/drum. just asking if GM had one.[/quote]

In fact, there have been cars built with a single circuit M/C and disk/drum brakes. Personally, I prefer a dual system just for the added safety, but there is nothing that mandates it for disks. GM did not offer disk brakes until the 1967 model year, and the Feds required the dual circuit brake system at that same time, so no GM cars came with the single circuit M/C and disk brakes.
