Operator said:Anyway, this is about using a hand brake on a hill not shifting with your weak hand, and I still think its better to use your real brakes (all 4 of them via the pedal) than using your rear brakes with some sort of hand operated device
I can understand that brake is more comfortable, or prefered by some people than the handbrake. Whatever floats your boat...
What I don't understand is, why you don't trust your handbrake? Ok, in a 944 it might be weak/woren etc. But in most car's the handbrake is intended to fulfill the purpose that is also in it's name, brake.
As I said, when you park your car on a steep hill, you leave the handbrake on, and your car does not roll away. So why on earth wouldn't you trust it while standing at a red light on a hill? :?
Also, what's wrong with a "hand operated device"? You turn your steering wheels with your hands, you shift with your hand...so what's wrong with the handbrake being "hand operated"?
