Aftermarket emergency hand brake handle?

Post by Paschek » Sun Jun 16, 2013 5:26 pm

Does anyone know of someone who sells an aftermarket emergency brake handle for the XR? Something aluminum, chrome, or CF? Maybe one for another car will fit on? My search has come up empty, the archives didn't have any info.

Hi, Stef!
Did you ever find your brake stuff?

Wow, that's far more aftermarket than I want. I'm just looking for the rubber part. That thing looks fluid operated! I found most of the stuff, Mike; but I'm still missing both sets of caliper mounting brackets. I'm looking to do that upgrade soon now that I have the car out again.

Yup!
That's the hydraulic handbrake from the Targa car. A bit over the top for a street car, but hey, I've SEEN your XR!
Keep in touch over the summer... :cheers
Where are you now? Cornwall area?

Yeah, my car is pretty over the top. But I don't do enough racing to justify that thing.

I'm in the Cornwall area again. I'll let you know when I'll be up for a visit. I have some bugs to work out first.
