I got my ebrake tightened on my 2001 ford focus se and me and my friends have been havin some fun. I pulled it once and slid on dry pavement and then the next day it rained like a mofo and we had some fun..you know (in a safe place) doin some drifting and sliding.. I was told this does not hurt engine or transmission because my car is front wheel drive and the ebrake locks up the back wheels....is this true am i good or should i not do that

Its real hard on the tires, if the clutch is in, it really won't hurt anything

You could be tearing up your torque converter by putting that much stress on the transmission. The 4F27E is known for being fragile...if I had one I'd baby it as much as possible. Plus it can't be good for the rear suspension/bearings/brake assemblies.

While on a scale of 1 to 10 on the intel meter this doesn't even register it really won't tear up to much except tires as long as you aren't pulling the car along for extended periods of time.
