I've never studied it, but these possibilities come to mind:
1) Jam a piece of wood or something between the pull handle and the knee bolster.
2) Clamp the cable (I assume it is a cable - I've never looked).
3) Study it to see what piece(s) is(are) critical to the ratcheting action and remove that(those) piece(s).

Drift an Intrepid...

Hold the release handle, brake as much as you want. (until you screw the car up that is)

I've never drifted/power slided my trep, however I do know that the 1G you just apply the parking brake, let it off, but not all the way, and then use it like a cable brake pedal/lever on a bike.
