Default Be careful

The short answer is yes you can, and yes you can use the hand-brake with the clutch in.

The long answer is a bit more complex. If you don't know the answer already you need to find a big parking lot and start real slow. Don't wanna wrinkle that new toy.

The 02 RS pushes into snowy turns, or tends to understeer. With a little flick in the opposite direction you want to turn, and then turning-in immediately, you can transfer the weight and get the car to rotate into oversteer. This is sometimes called a scanadnavian flick, or a pendulum turn. You can balance the resulting drift with countersteeer ( turning into the drift) and throttle steer. Don't learn how to do this on pavement!! Don't bother with the handbrake. (WRC handbrakes disconnect the rear wheels so they can do tricks like your VW.)

Your new car is balanced to act a bit like a FWD car, but with a little caoxing you can make it drift like a RWD car and reap the benefits of AWD by getting on the throttle far sooner.

Good luck.

You really shouldn't use your e-brake. You don't really need it anyway. Practising the scandinavian flick you can throw the car sideways any way you like and you don't have to risk destroying your tranny by using the ebrake. The trick is using the gas pedal to steer the car. You will quickly see how this gives you a lot more control than using the ebrake anyway.
