Do cars with disc brakes at the back have 'hydraulic brakes' like in rally cars?

Wow - really cool product Viper !

But, how is such a device plumbed into the existing braking circuit ?

There's no brake fluid reservoir & stuff on top of the master cylinder...

Am i missing something here!!??

thanks for the quick response people.

@ srini , that was really helpful.
I think this one will engage braking on all four wheels, i need only at the back.

I am interested in this as i am planning to add disc in both swift and 800.

The D2 system can be used for twos wheels or four wheels, but through the same connection, since it is hydraulic system , the first connection on the unit holds the reservoir and the second is used to connect to the brakes.

Hi SirAlec - I understand where you're coming from, I've been looking at rear disk conversions too The website mentions that the hydraulic handbrake is meant for locking your rears so that a drift can be initiated, so it is meant to actuate the rears alone. I guess it all depends on how it's plumbed into the existing circuit.

Hi Dinar - How does one connect this into an existing car's braking circuit ? Can I, for example, use a 'T' & splice this into the stock brake line ? Moreover, aren't cars dual-circuit ?

Hi Viper - Thanks a ton

Hi Guys,

Giving below 2 diagrams for connection of the hydraulic handbrake system. You have to use either one depending on the brake system present on your car.
