Anyone have experience with using XTR calipers and XX master cylinder?

Don't see that working out well for you....

Shimano are designed for use with mineral oil and Avid use DOT brake fluid. Those two systems are not typically compatible.

What crohnsy said. The DOT fluid will eat up the Shimano seals very fast, worst case fall apart when you need them the most. I highly reccomend you not to do this.

Another vote against it. Don't mix and match brake systems. Never a good idea.

new-fangled=desktop, $600. i'd wager that one ten years ago was a bit bigger, bulkier, much more expensive.
