Hello,

For the purpose of Advance Tactical Driving training, and in order to execute a particular maneuver, we need to lock the rear tires when engaging the park brake.
Is there any way that can be achieved by a simple mod or it requires a major one?


Thank you for your time

Without trying it I'd doubt there is sufficient friction to lock the wheels. I don't think the brakes have enough mechanical advantage to lock those big wheels with all that weight..did you try it ?

As said wheels too big and heavy and parking brake pads are too small for serious stopping

I think the only viable option would be to install a secondary caliper with bigger pads. Any suggestions?

Or dump the anti lock brake system/active handling, re-run the brake lines with basis controls on all lines, there has to be some shops that do this with armoured cars

Curious what kind of "advanced driving" you are doing, that locking up the back brakes is needed? Locking up the back brakes during any high-speed driving will cause the vehicle to lose control. Did you watch the fast and furious and think you are going to drift? Lol

Try installing an accessory brake caliper like the Aston Martin and route a handbrake lever?
