Description
 
Introducing our tall handle hydraulic hand brake. This model permits mounting the handbrake to the bottom support of your rig, which is the strongest part, and then extends up high to position it next to your shifter. By mounting this hand brake to the floor of your rig also keeps the hydraulic mechanism down and out of the way. This is the add-on version to the GTpro pedals and will plug into the handbrake port on the pedal ECU.

The acclaimed realism of our hydraulic foot brake has been incorporated into our latest handbrake design for your rally, rallycross and drift sim-racing simulator. This ultimate hydraulic hand brake is constructed entirely of metal and uses the same industrial hydraulic pressure sensor and adjustable slave cylinder found on our GTpro pedals to provide you with many years of accurate braking.

Because the RALLYpro hand brake is based on a real hydraulic master cylinder paired with our specially modified slave cylinder, it re-creates the proper feel of a hydraulic braking system. Exclusive modifications to the slave cylinder simulate the feeling of the entire braking system all contained in a small package. The hand brake is designed to give the feeling of the calipers clamping down on the brake rotors followed by true braking forces as the pads are squeezed onto the rotors. The RealGear RALLYpro handbrake utilizes an all metal fluid reservoir to eliminate the risk of cracks and leaks of hydraulic fluid.

The handbrake is designed to require real forces to activate, so it can be set up to use up to 100lbs of force on the handle at its maximum calibration. Of coarse, you may choose to set it to less. The brake handle extends 25 inches (62 cm) to place the handbrake handle up next to or even above the shifter 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 RALLYpro 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 RALLYpro 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 add the Stand-Alone USB control box. 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.
