Strip Burnout w/ L99 on drag radials

Sorry if this is redundant, but I searched and couldn't find what I was looking for.

What rear end problems will be created doing a strip burnout with an L99 on drag radials using the brakes to hold the front tires? Is a line lock mandatory for doing a burnout without creating issues in the rear drive train?

Thanks.

Line lock is not mandatory, But it will save your brakes. I've done over 30 burn outs at the track with no problems. Like I said just burns the brakes up, Installed a line lock so don't have that problem anymore..

This is the one I used easy to install, Their website is slow but the cheapest price I could find..

You can use the Jegs site for a better description, Peddler has a cheesy site but good prices.

I think the linelock is the best thing I ever spent $140 on

You can do your burnout without one, but for the price it is much cheaper than changing our your brake pads....

I don't have a line lock, no problems here. I might have bout 50 passes on my car since I bought it back in April.

As everyone else has said. No problems doing it except some premature wear of the brake pads. Did it for over a year before the line-lock was installed.

Keep an eye out for the one tire burnout also. Once you start increasing HP the posi mod is needed to keep both tires spinning.

On that, since I have street tires up front, I go around the water box. I then back up in the groove into the very front section of the water box. I then do my burnout and roll out of it a little. My car has been very consistent, I have about (6) 1.86-1-88 passes, and (20) 1.92-1.95 passes on stock tires.

My first burnout on drag radials is always my longest, and the ones that follow are usually half as long.

Tell me about it I usually look at the guy controlling the lights and he shakes his head at me about half the time when I am doing my 1 wheel burnout.... Guess I really need to get that fixed this winter.

Make sure you are in the water. Now that I think about it I used to adjust my mirrors with the 4th gens so I could see both tires... I need to start doing that again for this Camaro.

The starter here will usually guide the driver back into the water and pull them out slightly for the burnout. If not, I usually will look over at the other lane's water box to judge how far back I need to go to reach the water

Can this be used on Auto cars as well? In a lot of the info I see reference to manual cars, but none to autos. How easy is the install and where are the switches mounted inside?

One wheel burn outs is common. I got it but swapped out rear to a manual one and had a Jannetty posi mod and caps done at same time.

A line lock is your friend if you need a good burnout. Using the brakes, many cars will shift sideways and you can't really heat the tires up before you have get it under control. With the line lock, you can just sit there until its done and then spin out of it to the start line. NT05Rs are a good example. They will stick hard, with a good burnout, but it's hard to get them hot enough using the brakes alone. Same thing with stock PZeros. A line lock makes a big difference if your tires need to get really hot to be sticky. I've read that MT drag radials don't need that big a burnout, so just using the brakes would be enough for them.

On the other hand, I have no common sense, no experience, and lousy 1/4 times, so I could be wrong about everything.

Made sense to me. I have the NT05Rs and suck trying to get them hot. I just my line lock in today and going to install it in the morning and head to the track to see how good it works. I will post some videos and let yall know how it goes
