Question about linelocking.

Does linelocking hurt your car by this I mean in a auto jump on the brake's,on the acelarater and you know what happen's next,I know about installing a line lock device but If you only do it once in a blue moon installing a device is a waste of time but by jumping on the brake's and acellreratng at the same time will this stuff your brake's or something It's not something I plan to do all the time but let's face it every body does it or is curious.

Well youd wear out you rear pads a lot faster...
i think its bad for the torque conv. as well, but only if you do it a heap. Get two vise clamps and clamp the rear brake hoses, then do it!

Linelocking will gurt your car eventually. It all depends on how much wear your car already has, and how well it's maintained.

The parts that suffer the most, from most to least would be, torque converter, diff, engine, and rear brakes.

Heat is also a problem if done for too long.

It's not something you should do everyday.

I only done it once today and most likely won't do it again unless provoked but I didn't do it for long it was only till the tyres were smoking and then I let go of the brake's,I just dont want to destroy anything on the car it's only done 17000klm's,but then again I would like to drive the car and not baby it if you no what I mean, all in good fun.

Get yourself a electronic line locker device, that way you'll be able to turn the rear brakes on and off with a flick of a switch ;-)

Don't think they are too expensive either and it will help out with what you are trying to do, as only the front brakes will be able to be put on and the rears will spin freely.

Line lockers make burn outs easier. I believe they cause less strain on the driveline.

They are illegal, at least in Vic they are.

With ABS, the ABS fault light will come on.

Re: Question about linelocking.

www.vpwmailorder.com.au
has them for $139.
i had read somewhere that they are legal as long as the switch is not inside the car.. but you'd better check that first.
