We got a bit of snow... ice... snice? Anywho, is tapping your e brake while turning on ice as bad as I feel it probably is? I checked a few sites and the consensus was no, outside of AWD/RWD forums, but I'd like to make sure because: when I first realized that this would send me spinning I was more ore less keeping the brake on until stop (later I just tapped it to get the spin and control). The 3rd time "Check traction system" or the like came on. I restarted my car and it was gone. Decided to stop... after testing the theory a few more times. Laughing

Don't know that it's bad other than putting wear on your e-brake. At least not any worse than sliding you may end up doing in the snow without the aid of your e-brake. Although it's kind of annoying with a foot operated brake. I haven't done that shenanigans since I had my Grand Am that had a hand operated brake which is much easier for doing stupid things.

It won't cause any issues with the systems other than the ABS computer freaks out because the sensors are telling it the back wheels arent spinning but the car is still moving. Since it doesnt understand why it disables the system assuming the sensors are bad which triggers the warning lights and bong. Just disregard it until your done being a Hoonigan, turn the ignition off, and then back on, and the system shoiuld reset.

Last time I did that I was in a big open parking lot. Doing some "Winter training". Driving all over the place and doing backwards donuts ....Ummm ...donuts. Ending up blowing my steering wheel pump.
