My mate is going to make me a vertical spring handbrake with a micro switch. I just need to know if wiring it is going to be as simple as it is in my head.

So, I plan on opening up my wheel and taking the wires that go to a button that I don't use (R3 for example), and basically extending them to the micro switch on the handbrake.

Sounds simple but is it? and will it work?

I briefly saw a video on youtube of a guy wiring his handbrake straight to the circuit board of his G920. Is this what I need to do or will the above idea be sufficient?


Cheers

use an arduino pro micro to make connection to playstation 4. i have videos of this working with my sequential shifter build. on youtube essnetially the same thing but instead of just pulling to use the e brake im using it as a sequential shifter. if you decided to build my mod you can always assign the pull down of the shifter as a hand brake.

i cant post links yet so copy and paste
