I drove my old 69 @ RTTC.. Here are the specs on te brake system that I set up 7 yrs ago..

12 bolt rear with stock c-clips
12 inch disc with bridgebolt Dynalites, 1.38 bores, 1/2 thick non-vented rotors
Front- bridgebolt Dynalites, 1.75 bores, 12 inch disc/.810 thick rotors
1.00 bore cast iron 69 Corvette Master cylinder.
I can't even remember what pads I put on it.. but I think they were the old tan pads.. I had brake fade on the first day .. but by the 2nd day pads were gripping & no brake fade.. but was using less brake as I got used to the car & the track..

Never experienced knock back issues!! but was only running 255-18 in the rear & 225-18 in the front..

Quick solution to your problem Todd.. Change to floating calipers in the rear!
Expensive solution.. Full blown floating rear end!!
