Description Technical Specs
We've designed an e-brake from the ground up specifically for drifters. The DRIFTpro handbrake features a load cell that responds to how hard the handle is being pulled, rather than how far. "Feeling" the brakes is intuitively done by feeling the brake pressure and not by how far the handle moves, so we designed a handbrake around that principle. Neoprene bushings lend a realistic rapid progressive sensation that simply cannot be achieved with springs alone. The resulting sensation mimics the hydraulic sensation of calipers clamping down on brake rotors.

The e-brake, or handbrake, is designed to require real forces to activate, so it can be set up to use up to 80lbs of force on the handle at its maximum calibration. Of coarse, you may choose to set it to less. In either case, a rigid mounting is required. The unit features four mounting holes suitable for attaching to your sim chassis.

The brake handle is fixed in a vertical orientation as you would find in purpose built race and drift cars and can also be adjusted to various starting angles like a real handbrake. In fact, the DRIFTpro handbrake only allows adjustment to the extent that a real handbrake can be adjusted insuring you always have a proper feeling handbrake regardless of the adjustments made to it.

The DRIFTpro hand brake is designed to be used with the GTpro pedals PCU. The pedal control box has a connection for the handbrake. If you wish to use the handbrake with different pedals then you must select the Stand-Alone USB control box. The stand-alone control box features a single input for the e-brake only and provides all the calibration and adjustments available on the GTpro pedals. Various adjustments can be made using the control box such as dead-zones and response curves. These adjustments permit the user to dial in the feel that suits them much like a real race car driver makes these adjustments by changing brake pad compounds and rotor material.
