Post No roll-back deal on Subaru's

I'm sure your all aware of the no roll-back feature on manual Subarus. I have been told that if one was to do a 180, (Ex-with the handbrake) that, when you begin rolling backwards, by force, the differencial will pop. And that is a very bad thing to do. Is this all true, or does this no roll-back thing disengage or something?

No the hill holder doesn't affect it at all unless you do the 180 with the clutch in and the brake on. However subaru stopped using the hill holder sometime in the mid to late 90's.

You can blow the center diff though.

I really miss that feature. My 89 had it.

Come to a red light. Clutch all the way in, brake to a stop.

Foot off the brake, clutch still all the way in, you stay put.

This worked even on the fairly steep grade hills. made starting on a grade much easier. Why did they stop doing this, anyway?

Loki,
you mean that you depress the cluth and release the brake while you are on a hill and the car will stay?

I just clutch in, shift to neutral and keep the brake pressed down. Let off the clutch while I wait and when I start off, I clutch in, shift into first and start as usual. Hmm ... I figure if I am pressing the clutch or the brake it doesn't really matter. I am only holding one pedal down either way. Also, I don't find hill starts all that big of a deal.

iBlue - It's called "Hill Holder" and it was a feature they offered a while ago. Pretty tricky.

I don't think I'd want it, and for sure I wouldn't want anybody learning how to drive with it. What happens when they no longer have the hill holder? Say, different car? They go sailing into the car behind them because they don't know how to do it.

Nah, that feature was SWEET!! I got stuck on a STEEP dirt hill. Well I noticed that someone decided to put a nice metal pole filled with concrete at the base of the hill. I stopped with 2" or so to spare. Just push in the clutch pump up the brakes, and then rev the motor to 5-6K with the diff lock on and slip the clutch. Hmm no roll back, and my rear hatch remained intact.

That thing is also sweet as you can freak out the H-A rice crowd. Pull up to a light with a riced civic behind you. Let the car roll back some to indicate its a Stick. Pump the brakes to get the hill holder working. Then suddenly let of the brakes. 1/2 the time the guy is in reverse and needing new underwear before he notices that the car isn't moving. it usualy works the best with them as they seem to allways eat my rear bumper when pulling up to a light. The slight roll back then makes it really close....
