Question Parking brake mod idea

Ok so it is winter and I love to go to vacant lots in my momís Nissan Sentra and fool around with the e-brake is there a way I could modify my Intrepidís e-brake release so that the release is always up so all I have to do is hit the pedal and let off of it and it will go back up to the off position? Because I rarely use my parking brake since I live on a flat road and I like to have a little fun now and then.

Never gave this any thought, but, you could rig up a coat wire to the E brake release and anchor it somewhere on the B pillar. Clusmy set up but for some snow / parking lot fun it might be worth a try.

Late!

I noticed that also when I replied this morning, a 19 minute bump at 1:30am.

Alright alright alright enough flaming. I'll go poke my head under the dash tonight. Seems like it would be easy to defeat the mechanism.

Yeah I'm sure you could remove or disable the ratcheting mechanism that catches the teeth on the lever... but I'm not about to go and lay on the floorboard to find out how.
