Free Dccd during hard braking??

Hi all! Starting my career here with a question. As we know the dccd has a handbrake-release function wich when activated puts the centrediff into "open" mode. When we are rallying we often experience a lot of understeer on turn-in, propably because we have to put the dccd into one of the manual positions to have confidence in the driving. is there any possibilities to make the centerdiff "open" during hard braking? cause mostly the brakes are applied on turn in. An easy fix using the brake pedal switch will not work as a lot of left-foot braking are used as well.
Hope for some creatve ideas from the other users here!!

You can fit a pressure sensor somewhere on brake line. Motorcycles with radial brake master cylinders use this approach to switch on/off brake light.

If you can get a hold of such sensor (with specified switch pressure) i guess it wouldn't be a problem to fit it somewhere and then use it to control dccd (by handbrake light).
