ok well this monring on the way to school i got a bad ass start off with a fish tailing 90 degree turn on to the highway....it was unintentional at first....so i got to school and back into my spot as usual and three people jump in my car and say we are going to the Y. By the way the Y is a fork in the road after a decent straight...good spot for dounuts and what not. E-brakes to. So im like..uhh no...bad idea 4 teens in a car going to a spot to peel out....so we ended up going anyway with a yellow hatch-back focus Zx3...he had three pasengers and i pulled out of lot he follows...i own him the way there...it was great..took it up to like 85 or so on the sratight...and went up to the Y. So...this is just some extra stuff... the Y is a fork in the road with a big open spot in the middle. So we go up there he gets behind be and tell me hes gonna e-*brake it a coupla times. So theres about 10 seconds on nothing and he comes flying over the hil..and yanks it...he was pretty crappy at it but hey whatever. I watch him a coupla times...he asks me to do it, i tell him my car aitn made to do that kinda shit(didnt want to fuck up the car) so we head back...i own him again, his in front and i kill him on the straight go up next to him, then pull behind for the 30mph turn....he pulls the e-brake into the turn and comes about a foot from the wall...stupid. But yea...thats the jist of the story....

Isn't the e-brake only good for black ice?

I also set my parking brake if I'm parked on a hill; it takes some of the stress of the transmission, or so I'm told. It's an auto, but I was always told that.

For RWD cars it is not needed. But it is AMAZING for FWD. And it is not misuseing per say. Watch rally drivers sometime on tarmac.

That guy thinks he's like that "Marcco" Ralley driver guy. If you watch those races they most often e-brake to set the car into hair-pins and to keep the rear inline but, its a spit second application. They arent driving around trying to flat-spot their tires!
I think you auta take him out some more.....you might get a good show! Just keep your distance.

the only time e-brake is actually beneficial is when your driving a FF car and start to get understeer...you can slightly tap on the e-brake and you will really feel a difference cause the back end will nicely rotate around. weeeee

but it only helps when you have minimul understeer. if you have loads of understeer do this:



















learn how to drive!!!!!
