Can it be done...

So I was watching a video of the new 1320 and the Line Lock and Trans Brake (https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/enth...mage=BBVZUoE|5). I was considering trading my TA in for one until I saw the video. I use hand controls to drive (gas and brakes, mounted for left hand use) so I can't use the OK button on the steering wheel for the line lock and I can't hold both paddles and the gas and brake for the Trans Brake. So here's the question for the guys way smarter than me... Can the OK button and the paddle shifters somehow be rerouted to push buttons that I can put on my hand controls? I was also thinking about a bar that could bring the left paddle shifter over by the right paddle shifter.

Sounds like you need a Tazer so you can use the line lock feature, it's not as good as a trans brake put it will make a difference.

I'm not completely clear on the limitations you're describing for the controls, but check into the TranZformer device from ZAutomotive. It utilizes steering wheel controls to actuate a line-lock functionality provided by the device. Maybe you can make it work somehow: https://zautomotive.com/product/tranzformer-gen-ii/

(They are the same folks that make the Tazer device recommended by @F8Dragon above)

The Tazer uses the abs to lock the front brakes just like a line lock does in a older style car. I believe that you can also use this with launch control.

I have the older taser burnout box. I do not think the taser will work for you. I am unfamiliar with your hand controls. Can you manipulate the brakes and gas simultaneously with one hand? You will need the other hand free to manipulate the tazor. What about a mechanical line lock? A mechanical line lock is not overly expensive (Hurst might still sell one). I don’t know if there is a realistic way to achieve a transbrake.
