Review: K-Sport Hydraulic E-Brake.

postby theAngryMarmot » 10/23/13 @ 01:02

I bought this because they are local, and I get good pricing. I don't drift - this is just for occasional fun.

K-Sport single master cylinder Hydraulic E-Brake.

Pros :

1. It is Orange.
2. It's handle can be configured to be vertical or horizontal.
3. It is fairly cheap.
4. It works well, was easy to install.
5. the master cylinder appears to be of good quality.

Cons :

1. It inspires you to yank it randomly.
2. Don't waste the money on the "install kit" that has the two braided lines, as you will go mad trying to find compatible fittings. I gave up and just made hard lines.
3. The hold position latch is a bit cheesy and rattles if you are not using it.
4. I feel like the mounting bracket/base/frame thing could be a little beefier - however it has not giving any issues with flex/warpage/bending so it is good enough.
5. No instructions.

Would I recommend?

I don't know. Depends on you.

However, I do like it, it is fairly priced, and it works well. So if you like yankin' your levers - go for it.

Doesn't come with the SSBC brake bias k-nob in the pics.

Yeah, all in all I am happy with it. That and the foamy grip has held up through an AZ summer so far - so it seems to be well built. I may modify it slightly here soon - but for meow whenever it rains a bit, or I hit up some gravel curvy roads here - it works as advertised lol.
