[ACCURACY] Remove use of Emergency Brake on Group B cars.

Recommended Posts

I remember reading about the Audi Quattro how when it first came out it was a leap forward because it was the first automobile that effectively was able to make use of a 4WD system (adapted from a truck) via a set of complex differentials, but relative to today's standards it was the stone age and the system was practically locked all the time which made the use of the e-brake (handbrake) useless for anything other than holding the car stationary.  All group B cars that were 4WD had this issue as a result if you look at the old videos from Monte Carlo, Corsica or San Remo hairpin turns were beyond awkward to these vehicles.  In hindsight this shortcoming (along with the inevitable understeer of the setup) really shows how the 037 was able to keep up for a while... at any rate keeping in line with the game's accuracy we shold not be able to use the handbrake to swing these monsters around with ease hence I propose disabling or significantly weakening its effect to prevent use.

Well it may have had one probably to hold the car while stopped but on the move it really didn't work.  Here's a good example of what I'm talking about.. Virtually all the Group B 4WD cars had to hobble along hairpins or in the dirt had to do some seriously pronounced Scandinavian flicks to get going around tight bends.

false.  lancia s4 have hydraulic handbrake  :D

as far as I understand that datasheet, it didn't.
Also it's not about the e-brake being hydraulic, but disconnecting the rear diff in the center, so that only the rear wheels lock and not all 4.
AFAIK the Lancia Delta HF was one of the first cars to have this feature.

BTT:
We asked for this earlier on, but I'm still for it.
Realistic e-brake behaviour would be awesome, that way Group B could be merged into one class.

this is an italian website, i'm italian   and there's written  hydraulic handbrake  

it says:  "6 brembo disk brake calipers (2extra for hydraulic handbrake)

It is not about the hydraulic handbrake, but about a disconnectable rear differential.
