Its basically when you use the compression of the engine to lock the rear wheels by dropping it down a gear..
Why hesitate when you can accelerate???

so you'd be at the top of 3rd, drop it down to 2nd and dump the clutch. you'll either break your gearbox or diff (or engine) or the rear wheels will lock up until you've slowed down enough for them to spin again at the appropriate rpm for the gear you're in. try it with some shitty tires in the wet, too many compression lockups WILL kill your motor, my mate pete put a rod through the side of his old 4k after about, oh, 2 years of it :thumbsup:

corollas don't have brakes, they have these little things on the wheels that stop you once for about 10 metres then cease to work so you become good at engine braking once you get a bit of power into your K motor

Haha, yeah Corollas aren't like Dattos, Corollas have optional brakes. And it wasn't even a factory option...
