Line lock questions

Iv been thinking about a line lock kit for my automatic 05 gt and I was curious how it works and what it does? And my e brake lines froze up and I had to cut them to get the car to move again and I just never got around to fixing them. Will I have to fix me e brake first?

Line Lock just locks the front tires and not the rears.

Line Lock is a solenoid that is used inline on your front brakes. You flip a switch and hold the brakes and line lock will keep that amount of pressure on the front brakes and none on the rear, until you flip the switch back off. That allows people with manual transmissions to pull up, flip the line lock switch, hit the brakes, then use the clutch and gas pedal at the same time to do a burnout, without having to worry about using three pedals with two feet.

If you have an automatic and can powerbrake in your car, then you do not need line lock.

Basically yes. I have mine where I hold the switch in my hand. I just let go when i'm rolling out of the burnout.

I also preload the drivetrain slightly when launching and use it to keep from rolling over the line

Whatever it says comes with it. I wired my switch to the cig lighter by the shifter. I plug my custom switch in there and am able to hold however I like.

But yeh, I made my own switch to my liking. Not a fan of extra things. Had it wired to the traction control button for a while and wasn't happy with the location.

I see. This isn't really something I need or want unless I had more power and went to the track every weekend.
