A general discussion of wheels, pedals, shifters, handbrakes, and the like. Discus and post pictures of your home cockpit.
After struggling with handbrake turns in rally New England, I decided to find a way to mount this handbrake that’s been collecting dust since purchase Feb 2019. I have been so busy with work and moving and hadn’t been really into driving sims, that I never took the time to work out installation.
Then @Mudcat launched the DR2 League here and it’s game on. I had forgotten how much fun it is to drive like a wild man through the woods and in the snow.
Back to the handbrake. You can find it on Amazon for $89 US, but the company offers a new version for $15 more. The new one looks more like it was donated from a real rally car.
I’m a long way from the house of @Troll engineering, but even a caveman can drill a couple of holes in aluminum. The mount previously held my G29’s gate shifter, which I will need to mount again before I can drive a full manual rally. But for now, I need a handbrake more.
Me mark and drill holes Ugh
Me bolt on shifter Ugh
Dirt Rally 2.0 sees it and we are good to go. Will report the performance after a drive.
