Question "Destructive" RAR Extracting

I was wondering if there was a way to extract files from a broken rar structure (.rar/.r01/.r02 or part01.rar etc.) but destroy the previous archive peice the second it's done extracting from it.

I looked at WinRAR GUI and command line and neither looked like it had the ability. I was thinking about a batch script to do it but the unrar.exe extraction process does them all in 1 shot so I couldn't interrupt the process and writing a script that could either detect the extraction or the timing is beyond my ability.

Anyone know anything that can help?

Short Version:
Extract rar peices while deleting them behind the extraction because you lack space to extract or for any other reason.

This is my first post.
Thanks in advance.
