Talking Redneck traction control (TM)

Had my center console out for a while while I slowly work on the dual e brakes.

Haven't really come up with many ideas, usually if something sits in front of me for long enough I figure it out, but I'm a bit stumped. Short of fabricating up a custom bracket, I'm not sure how to have both the handles in while still keeping the cup holders (the most important part of the car, IMO)

Physically the two handles will fit, I widened the old console I had and there was room for both, its just a matter of getting them bolted down to the car.

Thoughts? Thinking caps appreciated.

First, make a bracket that both e-brake handles attach too. The bracket can mount to the existing mounting holes. This way, the brackets are centered.

It sounds like you have the rest under control !

You *******!!! You stole my characterization of your little project, "Redneck Traction Control" is mine !!!

Not sure I have a good idea on an extra handle, don't suppose it is possible to shift one hand over to make more room for two?

Dont know if its visible in the pic, but I can put some angle on them, I guess a flat bracket to attach to the car then to the brakes would work. It will be tricky getting it in there underneath the console though.

Thanks to RHJ for the term, I thought it was fitting.

I think rally SAAB 96's had a single arm with one brake wired to each side. When you pushed down it locked the driver's side, and when you pulled up, the passenger's side. This was done as that was the direction you and the body were going anyway.

You don't have LSD?
