2004 cobra line locks

Ok I've installed line locks. When I engage them it will hold a little bit but it is nowhere near enough to even hold the car on a hill. I bled the master Cylinder and brakes. My friend even used an auto bleeder at his work and still nothing. What could be wrong? I can hear the cylinoid clicking when I flip the switch.

Just to check but when you hit the switch you do have to pump the brakes 1 or 2 times to make them hold..

Yeah I've tried that. Still nothing. I can feel it gripping but not enough to hold. Had line locks in an 07 gt with no problems.

First off...props for getting that thing in there, not enough room lol.

Secondly i've ran into the same problem on street tires at the track when avoiding the water box. Got a.touch of water on the tires and no issue.
Strangely enough i've never had the problem on dr's or slicks. I guess those compounds stay cold enough to not try and hook.

My burnout procedure is pull up and set linelock. Put in 2nd gear, rev to 3k and aggressively drop clutch.

Yea basically, keeps the back brakes from engaging when doin the burnout, and like lowflyn said it's awesome to have if your lazy on the street, pull up to a light hit the switch and just set there

If you are turbo charged you can do what is called brake boosting. You have the line locks hold the brakes while you put pressure on the gas and spool up the turbos so you are in boost whe. You launch. Gets the lag out.

Where did you mount yours? Mine is directly under the master cylinder above the distribution block.

It's a one handed operation with those giant valve covers.

It's right under the master Cylinder. I took the master Cylinder out to put it in. Still was a pain.

Pros: keeps from rolling back on hills, do some bad *** burn outs without destroying back breaks.

Cons: pain to install
