spin turn **** installation (for a FD)

Im reposting this here as no one in the 3rd gen section seems to know or has ever drifted/slide their car's. In anycase, does anyone happen to know how to put a spin turn **** on to a FD's ebrake? This would be the the little button which replaces the stock one and allows someone to have their ebrake button held in at all times unless the person wants to stop when parked.

thanks

He didn't say he didn't know. He asked how it was race car related.

I tend to agree with him but will leave the thread here for now, even though forum rules say not to post the same question in multiple forums.

Here are links for installing a spin turn ****:

http://www.jspec.com/s13spin.html

http://www.jdmrice.com/tech/spinknob/spinknob.html

http://www.club4ag.com/faq%20and%20t..._turn_knob.htm

The first two links, are links to my friends' websites. The spin turn **** was installed in a 240sx.

The third link, leads to the Club4AG website.

Again, not for an FD, but I would assume that the general process is the same. Please read the directions and warnings provided in the Club 4AG website.

Apparently, when you adjust very tight, and you turn in fast, it will put jsut enuf drag on the rear to get the rear to kick out You gotta be going at least 25mph though clutch kick does the same thing but its a bit harder to control for a beginner
