Couple of Hydraulic Handbrake Questions

Hey Guys.

I'm looking at installing a hydraulic handbrake into my car. Has anyone had any experiences with fitting these into any vehicle? One thing i'm not sure of, is how they work on the rear brakes only, without putting pressure into the front brake lines.

Any help is appreciated.

Aaron.

As far as I know, in SA, they are still legal as long as you keep the normal handbrake, and I don't plan to use it on the street, if possible, I will remove it when i'm not using it.

Yes it's for when I have a go at a drift comp at Adelaide International in about 6 weeks time.
