Street legal - yes.

Does your state's inspection require a cable parking brake?
Would it pass inspection at some random shop without it?
Does tech actively look for it at events?

These are the questions you need to answer. I know they sell hydraulic handbrakes that will lock in position and act like a parking brake. I also know I've seen rally cars without the cable brake. Last, but not least, I'm a fan of redundancy in my rally car.

Here is the only interior pic I have handy right now. I put the handbrake to the left of the shifter. Not ideal, but it was the best location for me. Besides, I don't really ever use it....
