If your DCCD is set to lock, you could be feeling your diffs binding up as you slow down.

STi S20-SC

Thanks but no, DCCD is set to auto.

If I am rolling ever so slowly on flat ground, she will come to a stop on her own. Also, if I am stopped on a very slight incline, she doesn't roll. It just feels like the brakes are being applied ever so slightly. Less chance of rolling on start up without having to use the hand break but just a bit nervous that the brakes are actually being applied a bit and could cause premature break wear.

I've noticed it too. One person does not push an STi. My guess: All three differentials are adding enough friction for the tyres to fight each other slightly.

Street brakes are designed so that the calipers piston seals also function as pad retractors to keep the brakes from dragging.

I was actually thinking about this today as I was stopped on a hill with no one behind me and the car barely rolled backward. I am not sure why this is but I am sure someone has the right answer,

I stop on very slight inclines at lights, etc, all the time and take my foot off the brake and go nowhere. My theory was the same as Web Foot STi's (the 3 diff. thing).
