Do you only want the handbrake for drifting? I am a drifter myself, maybe learn to drift without the handbrake?

Either way, my EB has a floor mounted handbrake, as it has complete EF interior. I wouldnt be using it for drift though, personally iu dont think the ford handbrakes would take it for long.

If you really wanna be a girl and use the handbrake for drift, i suggest fitting a hydraulic handbrake

yeh the std cable will stretch/snap pretty quickly.. it's a park brake not a hydraulic drift brake... which is what you want if you're serious.

the Falcon handbrake isn't setup that well to apply it to drifting, try enertia drifting get the speed up and go for it.

If you really want to learn with the h/b, install a hydralic one. Will lock up when you want without damaging other parts. They are very easy to install.
