Sorry not very good photo's, believe it or not these are the first one's I've taken and I've had the car five months. I originally brought it for my girlfriend, but it hard some problems and one thing led to antoher, needless to say I'm riding my bike now as she uses my car.

On the list of things to do is...
Mudflaps, refit sideskirts, sill stands, finsih welding floor and paint (spay bomb). LVC and MANZ Autority Card. Put fuel lines through cabin (to avoid nasty stones).

I've road tested it and it stops alomst too well as it takes sooo long to gather speed.

What size master cylinders are you running in the pedal box? and I must say that is a strange way to setup the hydraulic handbrake.

3/4" Handbrake, but I may go 5/8".
7/8" front, 1" rear but will probably go 13/16" front and 7/8" rear as the pedal is a bit hard. I orignally had 5/8" and 7/8" but that didn't work. It's a trade off between pedal pressure and brake piston travel. But the ratio is right now, if your looking at doing this yourself buy a 7/8" and 13/16"

Yes, what's stragne about it?

I'm going to raise the gear level and handbrake up together as the handbrake mount is welded to the gearlever base. But I'm going to wait until I have modified the pivot's on the gear level and got the short shift right, as this will raise the knob up a bit before I modify that to gain some feel.

He has to push the handbrake to engage it rather than pull. Most rally cars have it setup reverse to his so the driver has to pull the lever towards them.

To each his own.

You have the handbrake listed as a push type, but if you turn it around it will be a pull type.

Lots of rally cars have it that way, gymkhana cars often do too.

Yes, of course if you turn it around you'll have to pull it, on direction is a pull force and one direction is a push force.

However, I originally had it around the other way but it was too far away and rather than fabricate a new mounting base for it I just turned it around. I actually like it this way now after testing as it is much more comfortable in the seat as you are pushing yourself back into the seat, which feels more natural when your braking. How natural would it feel to pull up the brake pedal with your foot when braking?

All relative really.
Obviously your arm/hand is better suited to pushing and pulling than you foot is though.
I think it's generally accepted as being more "natural" to pull it but that would most likely be only due to decades of handbrake activation that has conditioned us to expect it.

In the end, whatever works the best for you. :)

Great to see another rally car :D

Get out on the stages and have some fun.

When I built my car I had to make a little base to mount the handbrake on - I'm a puller :lol:
