fully engaged mine still rolls like the brakes not even oni dunno but mine sucks. you put it fully on and the car still rolls back an inch or so till the trans catches in park. i just figured it was a bad design or the parking brake was an afterthought on Brembo racing brake set ups.
i haven't tried to park on a hill in neutral and see what happens with the E-brake. I'll have to do that and see if it still rolls.fully engaged mine still rolls like the brakes not even on

- Left brake – Rotate star-wheel toward rear of vehicle.
- Right brake – Rotate star-wheel toward front of vehicle.

My driveway is on a hill and every time i put my car in drive there is a thud because the tranny is holding the car on the hill. I dont want to do any damage to by flywheeli haven't tried to park on a hill in neutral and see what happens with the E-brake. I'll have to do that and see if it still rolls.
i really don't use E-brakes for parking on auto trans cars unless I'm on a steep hill.
