Has anyone disabled the brake interlock that forces you to have your foot on the brake when raising (or lowering) the power top? In stop-and-go rush-hour traffic, it can be very difficult at times to accomplish this feat. How difficult would this be to do and what needs to be changed to disable this "feature"?

I have been caught in some rain with the top down and I just kept one foot on the gas (25 mph) and the other lightly on the break and put the top up. It seemed to work well. On the freeway, it is much better to pull over and stop to do it. Going too fast will rip it right off.
