In normal driving use I like them, it took some getting used to but now I've come up against a bit of a problem.


I wanted to put the car on some front ramps to remove the undertray and clean up the area. On previous cars I've used clutch control and the handbrake to get up on the ramps slowly without any danger of going too far forward.


Without a conventional handbrake there was a great danger of overshooting once on the top. Don't believe me, try it! I had to use normal jacks in the end, too frightening to drive up the ramps.


OK, I'm a wimp
