disabling rear drum brakes
 
I have a 72' Chevelle with rear drums and front discs. Can anyone tell me a quick an easy way to disable the rear drums for a burnout then enable them fairly quickly again?
Thanks for the help!

Put a line-loc on the front. Its an electric valve that holds brake pressure on the front after you let off the brake. Rear wheels are free to do as they please.

a cheap way would to take a ball valve of the correct NPT size and put it in the line to the rear by double flaring and putting 2 new ends on, with the inverted flare adapters, thread it up tight, when you want them off, close the ball valve, and no rear brakes.
