Default Brake kit

I am new to model As and have a 1930 Tudor. I am redoing the brakes with new hubs, bearings and drums. Is it worth the cost and labor to put in the " Flathead Ted" brake kit?

A lot of folks have it. One thing I've heard a lot is to do the front brakes first and then wait and see what you think – performance may be satisfactory with just that.

I have one with and one without. Both of my cars have excellent brakes. The Flathead Ted kit gives the brake pedal a different feel that I can't really describe but I like it. However, I don't think it stops any better than my other A.
