I think you are misunderstanding my post. Whether the brakes are good or not
has nothing to do with the servo. However, as you point out a car, like a
spridget, that does NOT have a servo does have a nice firm pedal. You almost
certainly won't get your Toyota brakes to feel the same even if you
disconnected the servo because the Toyota brakes will have been engineered
hydraulically for use with a servo.

That's odd... the brakes on my '74 are pretty much the best feeling (most
confidence inspiring) that I've ever had on any car. I was tempted to have
my regular mechanic try them, in order to convey what I want my Toyota
brakes to feel like. >>
