The "e-brake" is really a "parking brake" it's "drum-like" device inside of the rear rotor.i heard somewhere on this forum that using the e-brake on this car to drift will cause it to freak out or something along those lines.
you can always get rid of non-essential items like seats and such to make the car lighter.
does that mess up or put a lot of strain on anything, ie clutch, engine...? because when i was first learning to drive stick i did that on mistake a couple of times when i was down shifting.here's a little drifting 101 for ANYONE with a rwd car.... if you have a rwd car you DONT need to touch the e-brake to drift properly..... EVER!!! just down shift comming into the head of the curve/corner/turn.... the torque from downshifting tightensup the tail enough to give you a short e-brake effect that starts the drift.... as soon as you come off the clutch and feel the backend start to come loose get into the throttle and fan it out smoothly(dont STAB the throttle)
takes a little practice but once you learn you'll be like "what e-brake"
RMR here again. i suppose its all personal oppinion. this manuever might be possible witha built car, but it is not good for ANYTHING. The best way is to downshift, but over rev, and then dump the clutch, "clutch kicking" is the proper way to do it. by overpowering the rear it will break loose. another way is to pull the e brake, then clutch kick. but your asking for somthing to break if you downshift and dont rev match the motor. bad baddoes that mess up or put a lot of strain on anything, ie clutch, engine...? because when i was first learning to drive stick i did that on mistake a couple of times when i was down shifting.
