Handbrake for 8448 Supercar
A handbrake designed for the wing-door version of the 8448 supercar.
About this creation
The handbrake is on a ratchet. When the handbrake is pulled up a piece under the car engages with the cog behind the gears. When engaged, a button appears in the end of the handbrake. When pressed it releases the ratchet and the handbrake can be pushed back down again, just like a real handbrake. Once built it can be attached between two vertical beams in the car, requiring only four pieces to attach it, and not requiring any disassembly of the car.
