no need to. unless you want to simulate a hydraulic hand brake for coolness, You need to basically keep the button isolated inside the handle so it doesnt grab the teeth when you pull up on it and let it drop. but too much work for no real benefit

Well, I'm 6'5 and my car isn't daily driven. Most the time I take it out it's to the track. The problem I'm having is when I set up on the two step an start preloading, the moment I take off the car torque steers alittle. I let the brake down but it always only goes about halfway. In my old ek I never had this problem but with the location of the ebrake in relation to my knee it sucks haha
