Hydro E brake installation. Learn how to install a Hydro ebrake in your drift car. I show how to build a completely bolt in hydro mount that doesn’t require cutting the interior. I also show how to run brake lines and bleed the brakes so there is no air in the lines. Then we go out for a ride and test it out to see if it locks up the rear wheels!
Tools and Products I used:
Hydraulic Ebrake:
Stainless Steel Brake Hose:
Brake T-adapter:
-3AN to Caliper fitting:
Vacuum Fluid Extractor:
Cobalt Drill Bits:
Metal Cutting Saw:
Rubber Hose Clamps:
Metal Center Punch:
Dual Caliper video:
Make your own brake bleeder:

  • Spoiler Alert! Since I have gotten a ton of questions on why I didnt run the brake line under the carpet, well... That is because I will be gutting the interior for the weld in roll cage, then painting the interior so it looks amazing!

  • Another way you can spot a drill bit skiping around put a thin piece of cardboard where you are gonna drill.

    • You can run a hydro in line with your current braking system so you wouldn't need dual calipers, but I would recommend running dual calipers for drifting!

  • ChrisFix 2017: ''Now when you grab your drill and start drilling, your bit isn't going to skip around, it fits right in that hole. And another good tip is you don't wanna crank up the speed all the way, you wanna go relatively slow; the less heat you generate, the longer your bit is gonna last.''

  • Every single one of your videos are great and you have become more and more experienced over the years and I respect that. But I think what is not recognized often about you is your editing. How are you adding your voice? If you were talking while you were recording then how do you switch to another video without the tone and volume of voice changing? And if you were editing it and recording voice later, how does your hand movements match up?

  • This might be a dumb question, but why can't you just put a locking system in the hydro ebrake? (Not one that activates automatically but one that has a locking pin to push in)

  • If you using handbrake to drift you are not drifting, you are power sliding if you use handbrake. Orginal street drifting from 80`s - 90`s is without handbrake bro.
