not that i know of...the 7th gen celicas are still basically too new to require this (heck, evne older cars don't require this).

why do you think you need a new ebrake? just fyi: it's normal for your car to be able to be pushed back & forth (with some effort) when your ebrake is up and your car is in neutral. it's normal in almost all manual cars.

if your parked on a relatively flat surface, your ebrake should be fine. on any incline, you obviously have to 'put it into gear' and use the ebrake to prevent a rollback thumbsup

This is not necessarily true because I park my car on inclines and only engage the ebrake. I don't engage a gear. I've done this on steep inclines too without a problem of the car rolling. It's off topic but just my .02 thumbsup

'relatively' is the key word: my driveway is inclined, but not much. i only use the ebrake (i don't put it in gear)

as far as 'steep inclines' how steep are you talking about? sorry, but if your parked on a hill i don't care how strong your e-brake is thats just a dumb idea not to put the car in gear.
