An SLP exclusive, this unit is designed to fit both automatic- and manual-transmission GTO applications. Here's how it works: Press the brake pedal and flip the brake-control solenoid switch. Remove your foot from the pedal, and the solenoid maintains line pressure to the front brakes until the switch is released. This makes it easy to heat the rear tires in the burnout box, while minimizing wear and tear on your car's rear brake components. You can also use the system to prevent a manual-trans car from rolling out of the staging beams at the starting line.

This kit is custom-fitted to the GTO chassis and is fully compatible with the factory anti-lock braking and traction-control systems. It includes a waterproof electrical solenoid, CNC-bent steel lines with OE fittings, all necessary mounting hardware, and detailed installation instructions.

NOTE: Slight modification of one factory brake line required.

Our price for this is $134.99. Orders can be placed online or by calling 1-877-482-9763.

can someone explain more to me, the switch holds the brakes as if you were pushing on them? and it says front brakes well how does that minimize wear on the rear brakes?


someone break it down for me please :p

in order to do a burnout out with W/O the line lock you press the brakes just enough not to move forward and gas the crap out of it. while this is happening your rear brakes are still clamping but the torque is over coming the clamping force. hence your rear wheels are spinning but at the same time your rear brakes are clamping. you can imagine what this does to your brakes and tranny.

It locks the front brakes only. They stay locked until you flip the switch back off.

ok so what does the line lock do? The rear brakes are not being use then? what happens to the front brakes?

so only your front brakes are clamping. the rears are left free and clear

oh so the rear tires can spin free.....but it would seem that would put a bunch of pressure on the fronts but this clamps them tight enough that the car does not move

That is correct. It's just like having your foot on the brake while doing a burnout (power braking) but you don't have to push the brake pedel down. This also saves your rear brakes. They would usually be heating up by doing a burnout without this.
