    The Z's rear brakes are discs. The parking brake is drum, about an inch wide utilizing the inside of the disc as the "drum."
    Hmmmm...wonder how effective that parking brake would be for assisting in hard 90* turns not too mention drifting ?

    Very.
    That system is used on quite a lot of cars (just about everything from Europe) and handbrake turns were never a problem. It's a simple setup that works.

    Yep pretty primitive but effective. Why make it more complicated than needed?

    Looks like they did all the work. Don't see you in any of those pictures. Hope they come back next year and have some fun stuff planned for them.

    Haha, no I was in there too, just snuck off a few times to grab the camera hence the lack of detail photos.
