Re: manual line locks??

Yes, we are talking about cutting brakes. I remember reading sometime back that somebody had a toggle switch, but that must be electric. He would toggle left for left brake, right for right brake, but then you would need two solenoids, and if you wanted a very short term parking brake, then you can't lock both wheels at the same time. Maybe you would need a third solenoid.

The solenoids are fine, and it is easier to run electrical than brake line, so that would work for my application, I just thought it might be simpler to have manual locks. I even checked out the mico-locks but they are fairly cost prohibitive (and if I remember they are electricaly controlled also). Do you know of any good dune buggy sites. I would check those out.
