    funny that you mention this. I actually tried pulling my e-brake to lock up the rear wheels. You just have to give it enough force and pull it up all the way. It will lock up the rear wheels.

    yep. for those who have v6s cant use torque to spin the back end around, so we rely on the ebrake hahaha...but for some reason mine isnt very effective.

    Your E brake should not be used for this.

    my old v6 bird would spin to the side if u hit the gas, but I used to have fun with the ebrake too.. right around the time tokyo drift came out.... little ricer fags were mad because I could do the stuff they were trygint to do.

    Mephisto doesn't get abused in any such way.

    You guys with standards better not screw up ur handbrakes...you'll be sad when ur car rolls into a tree 2 blocks down the road.

    Just get the cable adjusted/tightened, and problem should be solved. Although i dont recommend pulling back on that e-brake too often, not too good for the car.

    in the manuels you have the put the clutch in before you put the ebrake on try that and also its not the pads either that is the ebrake it actually locks up the rear end... i don't know how to explain them... just go take the weels off and disc brake and other things to see how it works...
