Yeh, I was just wondering if pulling the ebrake on dirt to start drifts or 180's is bad for your wrx. Thanks

The right amount of regular brake, and throtle input will net you the same results. :)
Pulling the e-brake may cause the cable to strech or break. :thumbdown

True, just turn the wheel and gun the throttle..... also using the e-brake will mess up your rear diff

It's only good on teh video games f001! However, even if it does screw stuff up, it seemed to work well when i was drifting in my brothers car......

Actually, the most important winter tip (besides snowtires) is to remember where your e-brake is incase our wonderful ABS system fouls things up as it tends to and you lose all braking power. This happened to me even on dry pavement (over a bump) this fall, and I "coasted" about 15 feet with no braking power. I stopped luckily before rear-ending the car ahead of me but had my hand on the e-brake by that time...

I'd be more concerned about the center diff. The rear diff will not be working when the wheels are locked by the brake...
