When we put the disc brakes on the back of the wagon, I changed the MC to a 70 corvette MC. I left the brake lines stock to the rear. My question is, Should I have changed the brake line to the smaller diameter line like the front brakes? They work fine but don't hold like the drums did. We lowered the launch RPM from 3500 to 2500. (Foot Brake) I was thinking about it the other day. I was thinking the larger line carried more volume but would take more power to build maintain the pressure than the smaller line. Am I looking at this right? :-k

Yup, IMHO you're thinking about it correctly. Also, drums will typically always do a better job holding you in place at the starting line.
