Who's tried these? In an empty car park / track not street obviously. And can they still be done with electronic handbrake?

They sometimes lock all the wheels on cars with electric handbrakes so it's probably not possible/ worth it. Or they wont lock the wheels if the car is moving because of the ABS.

Electric handbrakes are the devil

You can actually do these manoeuvres in electric brake cars. Well in the Astra & Insignia you can anyway. Just keep the brake pulled whilst wheel turned and driving and you'll see. Done it in an enterprise insignia in a car park lol

Done a few of em actually, in fact I done one in the middle of a busy street, otherwise I would have been sandwiched so I needed to changed the angle of my car to get through the gap

I like doing this on icy roads.

A bit tough on e-brakes though as the amount of time it takes for the system isn't as instantaneous as a regular mechanical hand-brake.

Not tried it on the Tesla as supposedly when you do it the traction control will correct, also don't want to ruin the tyres as it is a special order tyres.
