A Mini Roadtrip with DADC on Board
The article focuses on DADC client Mr. Ishmael Lara and his belief that hand controls should do more than get you from point A to point B; they should be as much a part of the car’s performance as they are the functional modification necessary to drive. They should make driving a “performance”
“You work all week, then toss your bags in the back and hit the open road,” said Mr. Lara, “and my DADC hand control makes it possible; precise, fingertip control that reduces fatigue and allows me to drive with both hands on the steering wheel.”
DADC hand controls have been making hands happy since 1982 with their family of hand controls, including the patented, power-assisted Twist and Pull throttles and the manual Twist, Pull, Rock throttles, and Brake Only.
Mr. Lara drives a 2013 MINI Cooper JCW Clubman with a DADC Push Rock hand control on board. In August, Mr. Lara participated in the MINIs Take the States rally, sponsored by MINI USA. The bi-annual, two-week event is a 5,142 mile odyssey from San Francisco to Boston, through 13 states and 18 cities. When not driving cross country, Mr. Lara participates in the annual MINIs on the Dragon in May and conducts mock zombie hunts with the MINI Cooper Zombie Outbreak Response Team.
"The DADC hand control,” said Mr. Lara, “is the most efficient and least fatiguing of any hand control I have used in 17 years. My commute is safer and more enjoyable due to the responsiveness of the accelerator. This DADC hand control puts the "GO!" back in "Stop and Go" traffic."
