    I love doing em' too

    A little OT, but what is wrong if my E-brake is making a horrible squeaking noise when engaging it to drift or power slide. I haven't really done this a lot or anything but I was told I pull it up a little too hard enaging it when I park the car. Could this have anything to do with it? What can I do to fix it? It is a new car but I just can't just roll up and ask the dealership about this, because they'll without a doubt ask me why I was engaging it while the car is moving . And any plain idiot should know why I was so I don't think I could get this by them under warranty . Just wanna get rid of the obnoxious squeal. Thanks

    The same loud, metallic squeak sound? I notice that it doesn't break loose when this squeak happens also. I just know I was out with multiple people, various makes and some of them even complaining of a worn out or un-adjusted E-brake, and mine was the only one squeaking and not grabbing all of the time. I really wanna fix it and if it just need adjusting, that is not a problem. I just never heard one squeak like this before.

    mine grabs it when the ebrake is high and that is when i hear the squeak. I know that the only recall is our cruise control nothing on brakes or ebrakes but i will ask around...

    Hey, you guys with the WRX's, please stop pulling your ebrake when the cars moving!! That's a great way to fry out your center/ rear diff. You're hitting the gas in snow and the front wheels are slipping so what are the diffs trying to do?? Putt power to the back wheels.... but the back wheels are locked and won't move because you have your ebrake down!! That squealing sound you're hearing may very well be your center diff, not your ebrake!

    Would it do it if you were not giving it any gas such as in a power slide? I mean, I've noticed it whether or not I've been on the gas. Does our cars distribute power if you are not giving it any, such as while it is just rolling after you just accelarated? I'm not gonna do it anymore till I learn more about this drivetrain but it seems that if you are not giving it power (gas) and the tranny is in neutral, what would there be to distribute? Thanks for the input, just trying to understand

    *EDIT*
    Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to do donuts with the assistance of the E-brake, that just don't make sense. I'm just sliding the car out in EMPTY parking lots and only have done it while off the gas. I'm not trying to loose a differential, I had a 4x4 truck before this car and I know how easy they are to smoke (power-braking 35" tires on dry pavement very bad, never lost the rear though. Many of my friends have, though).

    Jay, i'm actually not sure if this applies to being in neutral. If you're in neutral and the wheels are still moving I think the diffs are still working (because they're mechanical and are independent of the throttle or anything else), but I'm not sure. I'm sure we could start a whole new thread about that tho.... It's a very interestng question that i know someone here can answer.

    EDIT: Just saw your edit. OK! I initially thought you were yanking the ebrake while on throttle! I almost cried a small tear! Thanks for clarifying... I still wonder if that does anything off throttle tho?

    I was off the throttle to because I didn't think that would ruin the differential, I thought that only happened on the throttle and pulling it like you said...
