      My ends are commodore now not 8.8, I’m sure I’ll sort something

        I used the Willwood handbrake caliper on a rally car years ago, it was fucking hopeless. They may have revised the design since the 90's but fuck me I always made sure it was parked in gear because the Wilwood thing was just there to keep the scrutineers happy.

          Showtime customs sell modded backing plate to have 2 commodore calipers for drift cars..some hydraulic handbrake handles have lockout feature.

          Can that be engineered/legal?
          an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

            Yeah, I’d rather get the factory setup to work, should be doable

            Hey WSID, I is ready

              I could be wrong, but iirc hydraulic handbrakes arent legal due to potential bleeding down over time.

                  at the risk of being the least qualified person to respond here isnt that because when they lose air pressure they lock on and not turn off like a hydro handbrake would?

                        correct

                          also correct. they are "normally on" and air pressure is used to release the brakes, not engage them. Operating the brakes bleeds air off, causing them to engage (controlled by the valve).

                            In vic this is 100% correct. IIRC the rally cars have to have the cable one working as well.

                            This is 100% how air brakes work.
                            .... because every driver experiences the destructive potential of the effortless surge of power available through the smallest of body movements.

                              Spring brakes apply spring pressure when the air is released. In Europe they actually park on air pressure alone which is nuts.

                                China rack arrived today. Seems to move smoothly and freely and rack mount spacing s the same (which is a relief)

                                Tie rod end thread is different and rack is shorter so will look into VL ends or make adapters to suit the VS ones.
