Can you do trick that involve pedal pressure like tire taps and fullcabs and will that break the hub?

Depends on the hub, but I've been brakeless for 16 years and haven't broken a hub doing those tricks and others. I've broken hubs doing pegless grinds, though. But, just realized this is about freecoasters and I have little experience with them. I'm also very drunk right now.

It's not recommended as you'll wear things quicker

It puts allot of side load on the clutch and bearings and will eventually break something if you use allot of pedal pressure with a Khe style coaster

If you want to do tap tricks, stick with a cassette. The pedal pressure wears down the internals of a coaster, regardless of brand or model.
