Independent control of the rear brakes has traditionally been needed to keep the vehicle stationary when parked, particularly on an incline. But as bootleggers and Hollywood stunt drivers realized, and today’s drifters and rally drivers know, the parking brake, or emergency brake, can also be used to initiate a slide for drifting or making tight turns. Today there are also hydraulic hand brakes that can be used to enable burnouts and launching at the drag strip. But no matter how you use your rear brakes, we have the parking and hand brake setups to do the job.
Traditional parking brakes on drum brake vehicles are mechanically actuated using a cable and mechanical linkage to apply the brake shoes. Disc brake vehicles either have small brake drums within the rotors containing small sets of brake shoes that are also cable and linkage actuated, or on some vehicles the rear caliper pistons and pads are mechanically applied. However, parking brake problems can arise when vehicles are converted from rear drum brakes to disc brakes or the existing disc brakes are upgraded to performance disc brakes.
When drum brake vehicles are converted to disc brakes, and when disc brake vehicles are upgraded to performance calipers, an alternative method of parking brake application must be devised. We offer several solutions. Our conversion kits include hydro-mechanical calipers that use hydraulic pressure to apply the brake pads when the service brakes are applied, and a mechanical mechanism to apply the pads when the parking brake is applied. You have a choice of rotors including drilled and slotted 2-piece rotors with lightweight aluminum center sections, and large diameter rotors in big brake kits.
When vehicles with OE rear disc brakes are upgraded to fixed multi-piston calipers, the parking brake functionality can be lost. These calipers cannot be applied mechanically and many performance brake rotors don’t have internal drum parking brakes. We offer performance brake kits that include fully mechanical parking brake calipers. These calipers are mounted on brackets that position the calipers in a different location over the rotors. These single piston calipers are made of lightweight aluminum, so you can retain parking brake operation without paying a weight penalty, and you can enjoy the superior braking that fixed, multi-piston calipers are known for. These kits come with drilled and slotted rotors and they’re available with larger diameter rotors in big brake kits.
Cables stretch, seize, go out of adjustment, and corrode and break easily, which is why they were ditched in favor of hydraulics for service brake systems in the 1920s and 30s. Today, drifters and rally drivers can enjoy the same superior hydraulic operation with our hydraulic hand brake kits. These kits allow manual hydraulic actuation of your rear brakes. We offer single cylinder hand brakes in multiple displacements that come with a lever that can be configured vertically or horizontally, and dual cylinder hand brakes that require much less force to completely lock both rear wheels.
Drag racing is another form of competition where drivers can benefit from independent hydraulic control of the rear brakes. Our hydraulic hand and staging brakes allow the rear brakes to be locked to keep a front-wheel drive car stationary when doing a burnout to heat the tires or when launching the car. And although electric solenoid operated line lock and roll control systems have been traditionally used on rear-wheel drive cars, these hydraulic hand brakes present an alternative that doesn’t require any wiring. Just plumb the hand brake into the hydraulic system so it locks the front brakes instead.
In addition to the above, we also offer a large selection of everything else needed to set up your own parking brake/hand brake system including handle assemblies complete with boots and trim rings; floor mount, transmission mount, and underdash mount handles, many featuring bright finishes and anodized knobs; footbrake pedal assemblies; sturdy front and rear parking brake cables and hardware; and fully mechanical hand brake kits with mechanically actuated calipers and mounting brackets. You can even turn your parking brake lever into a drift-inducing hand brake by substituting one of our Drift Buttons for the existing button and spring. With the drift button in place, the lever won’t lock and will return automatically to the off position.
