Nah, i was only kidding. However, fast futura on here does do hand brakes a lot and he has an ED.

Hard to do and really retarded, guess thats why he crashed it into a pole on one of his hand brake turns!



A flat spot is cause by one of the wheels locking up during braking and becoming flat because its skidding across the road. Normally happened with the front wheels due to excessive braking or the rear wheels if you're having fun with the hand brake.
