What is Hydraulic Handbrake?
There’s no shortage of names given to hydraulic handbrakes, so whether you’ve heard about a hydro, hydro brake, e-brake, wand, or another variation, they’re going to be exactly the same.
The purpose of a hydraulic handbrake is to lock up the rear wheels of the car. If this is activated when driving straight, your car will simply skid to a stop. However, if it’s used alongside a weight-shifting technique, then it will allow for far superior control over the rear of the car.
