You are absolutely right about the handbrake but, he is used to a independent hydraulic handbrake that has its own caliper and pad. This is most likely why he doesn't refer to the emergency brake as a hand brake.

Watch the rear braking that can be achieved with a independent rear brake

Didnt receive this notification till now... but holy hell on those drift angles.

I've always wondered actually, if you were to initiate an E-Brake slide in a DCT M3, how would that sudden lock up cope with the trans? I assume there has to be some safety mechanism to just disengage the clutch but I've never tried and dont intend to until I find out if its safe or not. Any info?

Not 100% sure on that either. I Don't own one so I wont be trying it in the shop car anytime soon lol.

Chelsea doesn't need an ebrake anyway
