XR spec engine, running off XR ECU, Wade 1673 that was just dialed in, pacemakers 4480s, hi flow cat and 2.5" lukey cat back. 3" stainless intake and everything else is basically stock. Manual transmission and 3.23 LSD diff.

I have noticed that my hand brake gets stuck when I release it. I would roll down my slightly declined driveway and it wouldn't roll as fast as it should and sometimes when I drive to work I notice that when I accelerate and let go of the accelerator the car basically feels as though it's brakes were on. Is it possible that my brakes might just be a tad stuffed and causing more power requirement to push the car because it is just not releasing? This happens every time I put on and off the hand brake. It goes away after a while.

phong =P~
