Can I use the handbrake to make some "donuts"?

Recommended Posts

Or will the ABS activate? Sometimes I like to play a little with my car at the Porsche Club events. There is a concur that we play with our cars thrue some cones and the use the handbrake to loose the rear giving power just after to. This could provide me some not only fun, but also to be more quicker. I´ve a 99 with TC.

Do you like repairing the CV joints on your car? I had a friend decide a handbrake turn was required for an autocross several years ago so he taped down the button on the handbrake lever so he could just let go to disengage it. That was the theory at least. Unfortunately when he actually used the handbrake the tape slipped, the brakes stayed on and when he jumped back on the throttle he popped a CV joint.

As for ABS, I think the emergency brake system used in the 996 is still the small mechanical drum setup inside the rear disc so ABS would not apply.
