Parking brake delete pros and cons

I'm looking at rear disc conversions for my Maverick. It has staggered shocks so you need the correct kit, anyhow I've found one by Right Stuff but it deletes the parking brake. The car is a weekend toy and is automatic. Does anyone see any issues removing the parking brake? Thanks

I haven't had parking brakes on my fox mustang for about 4 years now. It's a dedicated OT car at this point but I don't miss it.

In the process of making that decision right now on drag only 99. Going from a T56 to a C4 this winter, along with manual steering and brakes. Canít see that I would have any use for ebrake and it would give me more flexibility as to where to mount the reverse pattern shifter (most likely a quarterstick pistol grip). Iíve been told that as long as my brake line plumbing has separate lines for front and rear brakes, and Iím using a Strange 1.032 master dual chamber, that the chances of losing all braking is pretty remote. Would you all agree?

Coincidence. A convenient and overused word for the mentally lazy.

My car has never had a parking brake since I have had it. I will say that it is somewhat frustrating if you have the driveshaft out or if you are on a hill and need to press the clutch in. That is if you have a stick car. I would say 95% of the time it is not an issue but, there are times when I wish I had one.

If it's an auto no biggie, with a stick like mine it can be annoying at times not to have one.

also if you live in a state that does inspections you'd more than likely fail it
