Holy parking brake batman!

Okay, so i was fooling around, it was kinda slick out, i went into a 90 degree right turn, and pulled my parking brake. I turned, my whole rear slipped out from under me and I ended up being backwards hehe. It was late at night, with only one other car waiting for a light to go into the turn i slipped into. So i ended up turning, doing a 270 and facing my brights into the opposing car, he must had shat himself after seeing such a movie type move. I, will never use the parking brake again, too dangerous =0.

nice one moo moo, I use to do things like that back when I had my calais and on dirt roads. It is fun to do for sure, if you want to get good at it work with your drifting skills in a large parking lot late at night.

On the other hand though, I wish I could have been there I would be laughing the whole time.

I did a 360 and then a reverse 180. This was in my last car going about 60mph. I ran into a barricade. It sucked. I thought pulling the e-brake is bad for the car.

I went to a church parking lot one night after it had snowed and practiced using by ebrake to do 90 degree turns. (This was in my '90 Grand Am) All was well and good until I couldnt pull out of one and ran over a parking barricade (one of the small ones) sideways.
