It will be filmed, if anything "Interesting" Happens i will post. Recently found a new "PLAY" place, a huge abandoned parking lot where a warehouse was torn down has been leased by a good friend, and until he starts building back, were gonna have some fun.

We've talked about using line locks in unorthodox ways before: http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/line...ed-218867.html

BOBCRMAN@aol.com Line lock solenoid/valve is a simple shut off valve. You press down on pedal then hit switch. Remove foot from pedal and the unit holds the trapped pressure in the line. Usually the front line. If you want to spin the rear tires.
