I think it involves just driving and then turning and pulling the handbrake at the same time...I guarantee its not good for your bimmer. n

yeah you hold the breaks and punch the gas. i would only recimend it if you are drag racing, and have a problem with traction.just my 2 cents

that's termed "powersliding" - also a pretty bad idea - very hard on your tires, wheels, suspension.. but soooooo much fun

powersliding has nothing to do with the handbrake, you power into the slide.
Not sure what powerbraking is but it sounds bad... adding power... and brakes... ehhhhh

Just another thing thats fun to practice on rental cars
Most of the rental fleet are front wheel drivers so you just have to be creative...

just don't wait to get new ones and drive around with bald rear tires when it rains... That's why I hydroplaned into a curb on a twistie exit ramp and caused myself 4,000 in damage.
2,200 for the suspinsion\axle that got tore up, 1,000 for the passenger side airbag and door panel, and 1,000 for the rear bumper that the towtruck compony winched off (not OFF, but bent the mounting brackets REALLY badly, they used the tow-bolt as a fucking tiedown) (I also scraped the guardrail as I essentially drifted on this curb, heh)

Oh yah, and another 400$ each for 1 rim that was bent up and RUINIED, another with severe curb rash, and another with a small boo-boo. So, roughly 4,800 in damages, not counting that 3rd rim.

Insurance premiums would have been worse for the next 3 years if I had made a claim, plus the car would definately be marked as lemon or salvage (the damn thing was repaired back to factory spec, they replaced a lot of things that wern't broken at all) so I am really just out a few thousand bucks
I don't have the cash to pay for the bumper or the airbag right now so.. bleh...

using the e-brake helps you go into a powerslide

Yah but then it becomes an e-brake slide assisted powerslide... not a real powerslide..
Get an lsd!

you apply a little e-brake in the middle of the slide so your rear end swings out further and creates oversteer - gets your front end pointed in the right direction so when you slam on the gas the car goes in the right way as the throttle straightens your car out. Crappy way to race - because that's more about throttle control and you lose too much traction skidding - it's not a real hard and fast rule.
