    Thats sweet. I have the same CNC Brakes cutting brake set-up but with handles sticking straight forward. How is that working for you? what rear calipers are you using? Was it a pain to bleed out? I havn't installed mine yet.

    sh*tty. Can you build enough pressure with the cutting brake to lock up the rear tire? Or does the handle bottom out when you pull it up?

    the handle travel bottoms out, but it does lock up the rear brake for that side. we had my dad's f-250 dragging my truck around the shop playing w/ the cutting brake, it will hold, but it just needs more bleeding.

    ok cool, if i install one it I just want it pretty close, because i have a somewhat bad back (and I'm lazy), but think i still want a consule, i might make something like ryokens (probably not as kool lookin' though)

    Mine could be duplicated in wood very easily... It's just a box... You could always put a layer of fiberglass over the outside... or just paint it in epoxy...

    i might, i kinda want to do a mix between yours and boz42's, like a steel frame or something i dont know. i know i want an arm rest, but i dont know how i want it all to look, i was still thinkin like some type of mount on the dash, i dont know, maybe all just send some Hundos over to you ryoken and you can make it. JK, like i have any money :HAHAHA... Oh i made myself sad:bender from futrama:(
