Bandit1980: I'm happy one people talk about it. Why don't put line lock on the rear brake I think it's the better way to have the best control. Expecialy for slowly go forward and still burns the tire Just don't know:

-Why nobody talk about locking the rear line when talking about line lock.

line lock

Line Lock is designed to be used on a race car in the burn out box. You don't want to creep forward. So you put it on the front.

I don't care about drag-racing. I want to burn the tire on street and slowly go forward by keeping a little pressure on the front brake. Is it possible to do that by closing the valve and neutralizing the rear brake. After that riding with a foot on the brake pedal and the other on the right pedal

yes

You can do that. I don't understand why you would want to. Get some horsepower! Then you can do a burn out at 50 mph.

great idea

Good advice Bandit! I've never looked at line lock installations that way. Your setup has three options : keep your left foot on the brake pedal (like a brake stand except you don't waste your rear brakes), ease off and do a kick *** rollin burnouts, or keep the line lock deactivated and apply brakes to all four wheels while you're stallin up. Your installation method doesn't negate the purpose of the line lock, it actually makes it more versatile. If I wanna do a burnout in the box I'll have to step on the brakes for the duration, small price, I'd say for the added coolness of slow rollin burnouts. Thanks for the great tip.

no rear brakes

Don't get caught in the snow. The rear wheels will push your front wheels along like skis. You'll have to pop it in neutral to get stopped.

i´m interested too.

The question is not WHY, it´s DOES IT WORK??

In my opinion it makes no sense to put
a line lock into the front, except for manual trans,
needing one foot for the clutch.

You can powerbrake a standard tranny without a linelock if you can walk and chew gum at the same time and if she aint got enough power to do that you can always slip the clutch.......LMAO
