"Hook" Handbrake Kit Specification

When drifting, OE cable handbrakes quickly reach their limit, especially as speeds increase and if your vehicle has larger tyres. A hydraulic handbrake is the effective, long term solution.

This hydraulic handbrake is supplied with two handles : a « hook » style handle (made from fully forged aluminium), and a standard one (see pictures). Handles can be switched from one to another in seconds, without removing any other part. Perfect to keep your project car discreet on the road, and be eye-catching on the track !

This handbrake can be used in both horizontal or vertical positions, simply be re-orientating the handle. It uses a 0.75" master cylinder, providing power and reliability to your rear brake calipers. The support and mechanism are made entirely of aluminium, and are particularly robust whilst remaining smooth to use.

By providing independent hydraulic pressure to the rear brakes, it gives quick and accurate braking, locking them far more efficiently than a cable system. It also features a locking mechanism that can act as a temporary parking brake (when queuing for a run, for example). It must not be used unattended.

For quick, easy and safe mounting, select the optional hose kit above! 

With the above hose kit, fitment will be direct on the vast majority of cars used for drifting (Nissan S13, S14, S15, Skyline, BMW E30, E36, AE86...). The hoses provided simply replace your stock rear brake line, and add the handbrake assembly into the middle. They connect at the front to the master cylinder/ABS unit and into the rear caliper T-piece at the rear of the car. See the picture below for a diagram.
