"The other is a hand brake that operates only on the rear wheels. It helps with those big slides."

These front wheel drive cars with the handbrakes are not true drifters,
they're just rear wheels whipping around like a wagon behind a team of
horses. The art of genuine four-wheel drifting was performed with rear
wheel drives, whose adhesion was controlled by the heel-and-toe method.
Very few cars and/or drivers could do it.
