Question Using handbrake a lot on FWD...?

Well, I was just wondering if it hurts the tranny or such to use the handbrake numerous times in succession or just a lot.
I have a little 1.8l L, so there's no rear diff to worry about...

Well, since the tranny isn't even connected to the rear wheels, it won't hurt it one bit.

Edit: assuming you have a FWD Impreza (& not an AWD Imp w/the auto fuse pulled).
