Racing Simulator Handbrake
We purchased a complete set of Fanatec components for our racing simulator. The quality is all top notch, and the design is very thought out.... except for the handbrake. We used the handbrake for about 2 days and a bolt sheared within it. Rather than mess with the faulty unit, we went ahead and made our own, using real automotive components!
It uses real hydraulics, and when the handbrake is pulled, the slave cylinder squeezes on a series of bushings to simulate actually compressing a brake caliper.
