Just google " subaru awd ebrake" I found the most helpful ones that relate to the 2.5i's were the post by older manual trans foresters and wrx's. I don't think the 6 speeds STI's have to worry so much about this.

But if something did go wrong you'll be looking at dropping the tranny and cracking it open, replacing the center diff in the middle of the tranny and hoping your gears are still alright. It's a massive job that's pretty easy to avoid. Same concept as to never tow a subaru awd on just two wheels.
Ok I see. Hey thank you for bringing that to my attention. I actually don't want to drift anymore haha. Ill just spectate the other subies.
