I am assuming that this is the first time you changed the fluid. If so the metal in the fluid and on the plug is normal. The manufacturing of these transmissions internals is not the same as auto manufacturers. There is a lot of roughly finished surfaces that need to wear together. That's why they use break in fluid, and there is so much metal in it when you drained it.
Yes must be You know yourself when you hit a large bump that you can put more pressure on the pedal than you want. The cable came out right at the barrel. Both handbrake cable's are broken also. Both at the same spot. All were replaced under garantie by Quadix.

If you use your E brake to play it is a lot better than the cable brake. The last one I put in cost me about a $130. that was a brake, lines, fittings and all. They are a little more popular now and have seen them on ebay for $75
I can have the same effect by downshifting. We don't have the power to overcome the effects of using a rear brake and powering out. You will still many times have to ebrake to slide the down shift to power out. I can do the same with foot brake and down shifting.
I can power slide as low as 20mph. Any slower then that you don't need to slide. I may be able to do it at even lower speed I am not sure as when I am driving in that manner actual speed by mph is illrelvent. I judge speed by engine note and the speed at which the surroundings pass by. I have driven trails for hours and could never tell you what speed I hit or RPM I ran. Those are only distractions from from what is needed to drive the trails at speed. The only real gauge I pay attention to when driving hard is temp.

That's all true and I'm not doubting your or anybody else's ability. Lol. I just didn't proofread before I sent it. I ment slower speed turns that you would normally downshift anyway. no you don't have to have it no matter what car, but depending on the curv and your approach it does sure make things easier at times and they on a lot of fun
I didn't think you were judging my ability. I was just saying I Can throw mine around pretty good without one. More fun? Sure. But also another step in the process of killing trails and my little brain doesn't need more to think about. Ha
Lol. I get what your saying. It's nothing like using the stock parking brake. No button to concentrate on holding down. Set up next to your shifter its easier to grab and takes the thought process out of it. Just a preference I guess. Just one more way to skin the cat.
