Default Any way to make brake pedal easier to push and/or reduce travel?

I'm paralyzed from my waist down so I installed hand controls (to operate pedals) on my '04 CC DS IQ. Is there any way to reduce the pressure needed to depress the brake pedal? It just takes so much effort to operate the brake pedal with the hand control that I cannot come close to slamming on the brakes, much less locking them up. Also is there any way to adjust the pedal so that it will activate the brakes without being pressed all the way to the floor?

No not really, your only option to make the brakes much more efficient and taking less pressure is to upgrade them to hydraulic brakes from Wheelsca.

By just changing out the rear brakes for a hydraulic setup you will increase braking ability 80% over stock for half or less than half of the pressure it takes to operate the stock setup. Operating the hydraulics will be smooth and effortless...

The only issue is that they are a bit pricey. $435.00

Here is a link to the site.

You want the Club Car Rear wheel disk brake set non-lifted.
