    what handbrake would you recommend for sim racing? (budget low, mid and high range)
    reliable and quality handbrake, experience with products and if any of you had quality issues with yours?

    I have the Fanatec handbrake and use it almost exclusively for the occasional hairpins in DIRT Rally. Sure it's got a bit of "sideway movement" at the lever as shown in several reviews, so i might not recommend it for a handbrake heavy user, but for me it gets the job done. I guess the sideway moving could be easily fixed with a little DIY, but so far it hasn't bothered me enough to actually do something about it.

    I have the Heusinkveld Engineering handbrake and I am really pleased with it. It has a lot of adjustability: angle, strenght required to pull it, travel, etc.
    It is built on the same logic and same material than the pro and ultimate pedals of this brand.

    I would have liked the grip to be built in a way that you could change it. It is not the case and it is the only downside.

    For me this handbrake is more than enough but if you are looking for the "ultimate" one, the Derek Speare Designs' handbrakes (V2 or V3) seem to be the best choice.
