Hi guys,

I tried to drive the Opel Manta these last days and I have a problem:
in hairpins, when I pull the handbrake, the car stalls immediatly.

I have the problem only with this car, is it normal?

Do you use an analogue handbrake or just a button? I would imagine that the car stalls if the handbrake has too much "bite" and locks the rear wheels. Using the clutch for hairpins might help.
However, I'm no expert on rally driving techniques, so I'm not sure whether that's realistic.

ok Tobias, it could be that; indeed, I am using a button as handbrake, I already tried to use the clutch and it doesn't stall anymore, but it's strange to do this way as for the other cars, it is not a problem. Perhaps for the Manta it's too much :)

All rwd cars stall when you use the handbrake and H+Clutch gearing. Not sure about Group A since they should have hydro handbrakes that disconnect the driveshaft and keep the front tires in drive.

Weird, I do. :S Not a problem but realism feature. ;)

Funny, I will test some more.
