My brother is a Mustang enthusiast. You know the type. He has book shelves full of old 5.0 Mustang, and Muscle Mustang magazines dating back several years.

After he installed a "line lock" device I was fortunate enough to witness the first test of the line lock in the form of a big smoky burn out, which looked great as it surrounded the back end of his bright red Ford Mustang.

He purchased the Line Lock device to make heating up the rear tires at the track much easier.

Basically, the line-lock lets you apply the brakes, flip a switch, release the brake pedal and the front brakes will stay locked.

Then you can let out the clutch, give the car some gas and start burning out the rear tires in the track's wet box to get them hot and sticky without damaging your rear brakes.

You can also use a line lock to prevent a manual transmission car from rolling out of the staging beams that are emitted by the track's "Christmas tree" starting light system.




This burnout certainly cleared up our concerns about whether or not the new Line Lock system works!

It also burned up plenty of the expensive rubber on his Bridgestone Potenza RE730 tires.

If you want to install a Line Lock system on your Ford Mustang, I recommend that you also purchase a speed bleeder for removing the brake fluid.

I also advise you to only use the toggle switch that came with the kit if it has a safety cover.
