Has any one istalled Line Lock Loc Launch Control Kit to help with burn outs?

I have an SLP line lock on my car and it works great. Makes heating up the tires a lot easier and not so hard on the brakes.

I havnt put one on this car yet but they definately make burnouts alot easier on an M6 car, plus its easier on the brakes when you do.

If you go to the drag strip its an excellent mod.

A line lock is not a waste of money. It will help clean the tires off in a controlled manner as well as heat the tires off.

The line lock will help reduce drivetrain and brake wear as well.

Here's another one on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/SJM-V...item35b2101bc8

This one has a two stage electrical circuit for controlling the line lock solenoid and is less expensive. Consider the sponsors on the board though. Speed Inc, Texas Speed, Nickey Chicago..many others have them.

Thanks for the info and replies,
It's all new to me. Was looking at SLP, cause of name reconition and looks stock. SJM, however looks interesting.

Just want to be able to do 1 burn out before a cam install. Still saving for this.
Just want to get my burn out fix for the time being.

The SJM was the first on the market...from 1993 and on Camaro vehicles, they were the first. SLP appears to have copied some of the line configurations (i.e. our front mount LS1 Camaro setup...and mustang setup).

SJM parts have the most advanced electrical configuration using a remote mount LED and a two stage electrical setup. All lines and fittings come assembled, no Teflon tape is needed...the kits are so complete they even come with a new grommet if you do not want to reuse an old one on your firewall. All parts are high quality even down to the wire which is a special fire retardant shielded wire (J1128 specs).

Regarding location, we chose the location on the passenger side as mounting near the brake booster can have interference issues with some supercharger/turbo configurations...at least with the car that we designed the kit around...it would not have worked well over there well and was too cluttered not to mention was too close to heat sources which is not what you want when it comes to using a line lock solenoid (which can generate quite a bit of heat).

Good luck with your choices.

Installed the SJM line lock today. I did a small test then, I heard and saw enough. Now I need to post a video clip and post it.

Here's one of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering using our kits. Their cars are extremely fast. http://sjmmanufacturing.com/forum/vi....php?f=10&t=20

here's another of a customer showing how the system works: http://sjmmanufacturing.com/forum/vi....php?f=10&t=19

There should be some images posted on the forum in here. If you can't find them, shoot me an email and I'll be happy to send one to you. Our kits are mounted on the passenger side to keep it away from heat in addition to allowing ALL customers have zero issues with their supercharger or other modifications on the drivers side (such as the customers car we used as a prototype had modifications that wouldn't allow a clean non-cluttered install on the drivers side).

I bought the Hurst one cause it was only $150 on sale at Lordco in town here. Gonna wait til spring and see if I can get a brake shop to install it cause the "kit" only comes with a solenoid and a switch.

The kits themselves mount the same, and there are pics of that, so here is my hidden switch location...

This is the power switch to energize the system, the activation switch is the horn... I energize the system, and then tap the horn... if the horn works, then the system is not on... No horn... good to go... water box... roll em over, stop, stand on the brake pedal, push the horn button, smoke em up... and then let off the horn to roll out....

The system swith pictured below is lit up when on, so even with the cover over it, I still see the red glow, and so as I turn off the track, I have a visual reminder to deenergize the system...

For $150 it better have come with the mounting plate for the 5th Gen, brake line specific for the 5th gen, along with all the wires, buttons, and solenoid.

If you got the complete kit for $150 then you got a good deal. I haven't seen them for under $160 + tax or shipping.

I'm waiting till the beginning of the month and then I'll be buying one myself.

I picked up a line lock kit from SJM Manufacturing last month. I picked it up for less than 150.00. From the look of it, they are never over 150.00.

I really haven't performed too many modifications on this car and was leery of installing the kit. I was very surprised the kit was completely assembled in the box.

The kit literally bolted right up. The install went perfect and the kit performs perfectly.

Any Staten Islanders out there?

SJM Is a good kit and you can get them for $150 all day long. Steve answered the phone and answered a few handfull of questions I had.

The biggest reason I'll probably be going with Hurst vs SJM is the mounting point. I like how the Hurst mounts up under the master cylinder and is hidden vs SJM is mounted up in the front by the ABS. IMO the lines draw your attention right away. I was going to look at pre-painting the lines and then wrapping them in plastic during install. You'll probably still have to touch up the paint afterwards though.

IMHO, I think it looks stock. You don't even notice that it is there. The install location was a breeze.
