I was thinking that my M37 truck might be a bit tricky in a hill situation with modern cars breathing down my neck. These appear to be a push button e brake controller kit, I see them on various trucks and hot rods. I can’t reach the e brake very well in the truck, it’s way down low by the floor and on the opposite side of the gear change. But the truck has drum brakes, I’m not sure it can work without disks? I wish there was some kind of anti roll back device like Mazda used to have. When I rented an SUV last time I went home to Hawaii for a wedding I tried it out on that and it was pretty nice. The tranny in the M37 is not very forgiving and I don’t want to avoid going some places in it. I hate how modern car drivers have no concern for what it’s like t drive older manuals, they stop in front of you on hills or creep right up on your ass on a hill, stresses me out. I don’t drive the Z to SF for that reason, plus the roads beat the shit out of you with that suspension.
