Hydraulic Pull Back Hand Brakes

Anybody fitted / used a pull back they can recommend (Brand) etc. I want to purchase / fit one into my Honda Integra DC5.

Main use will be to load the wheels on the Start Line. Biggest problem I had with my last FWD was creeping on the Line with a std type Hand Brake.

The Integra I've just purchased one is a lot worse / weeker even adjusted up to the point where it effects acceleration. And before you ask : I've learned the best way to get a FWD off the line (reliably) is to load the Drive Line and slip the Clutch.

If your car has abs, then you will need a twin cylinder version.

Ksport works well with an ap cylinder, but thats a single cylinder.

Twin cylinder wise, the APS unit works well.

Both of them can be configured so the lever is horizontal or vertical

I've seen a T pull cable fitted to a brake pedal, allowing the driver to press the brakes, then pull the cable with their left hand, holding the car on the brakes whilst the bite point is found. Then they release the cable as the lights change.

But as youre not racing a grid full of integras, is there any point?

Is such a brake lock permitted under the Blue Book general regs or for BB/class/championship regs for hillclimbs/sprints?

Am I out of date/got the wrong end of the stick, or are such things purely permitted for drag racing for locking the front wheels while carrying out permitted wheel spinning of rears pre-start, or the reasons for using them for speed events have declined with the wheel spinning for tyre warming being dropped?

AVailable from the usual sources, e.g.: https://www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk/p...SABEgK1-PD_BwE

Cheers
Mike

Radical has a spectacular aura about Radical has a spectacular aura about
10.7.2.
Brake balance adjusters must not be available
for adjustment during running.

Wouldn't such a device be the most extreme form of brake balance adjusment?
