bloody hell drew... your nuts, haha.
dont yank on it too hard, it might snap off :)

good carbon skills tho, you could probably work for a racing team, doing stuff like that.

have you had this wagon out on track yet ?

If I need to do any handbrake turns I have the hydraulic :) though the first time I pulled on the carbon lever I did put on my heaviest leather welding glove, just in case..
Unfortunately I haven't had it on track since last year's shakedown at blyton.

Cant really get a good picture of the handbrake but its fitted and works..





Untrimmed carbon parts for the oil cooler mount/duct



The weight of the aluminium...



versus carbon



The carbon parts are much stiffer.

Assembled and ready to be fitted back on the car




and fitted..







There's probably not much of a weight saving compared to how the oil coolers were mounted, even with the shorter hose runs, but the weight is lower down and the ducting should make the whole cooling package a little more efficient.
