Is there any harm done, or wear to the brakes, motor.???

The reason is that I forgot to release the parking brake on my NSX??? Drove for half a mile...then I realised.

Anybody done this before...?

Worse case with the distance you drove is your pads and rotors will need to replaced. However I suspect you probably just wore the pads down a lot.

I've done it for like 2 feet... i'm sure if it was at night, you had a nice 'glow' protruding from your rear tires... that would have been priceless to see on film

DanO is right, no harm to anything but pride.

It's like lightly riding your brakes for 1/2 mile.

The funny thing is that my friend last week did this on his BMW, drove hard in the freeway, and all this smoke started to come out from the rear brakes.....found out later that he forgot to release the parking brake. I was like hahahahah what an idiot...
But I guess I am the idiot now..
