Changing The E-Brake????

To do it through the main brake system you would have to conver the brake system to be on seperate front/rear circuits, instead of dual diagonal, which is a matter of rerouting brake lines. Then, you could add a clutch cylinder or small master cylinder into the rear circuit, to be actuated by the handbrake lever. This will give you better slide control, with less effort to lock up the wheels, which I'm sure you would be very keen on

Thanks for the Help
P.S. If Anyone Else has done this or has seen a Write-up/How To on this please let me know i havent had any luck finding anything on it pertaining to subaru's

I don't remember if it was my Dad's 78 Brat or my 80 Wagon but as I was new to Subaru back then I didn't know it was on the front wheels. I was trying to show off and pull an emergency brake spin but as you can guess things didn't work out too good and I ended up in a snowbank. Oh well...
