2010 Camaro Line Lock ( linelock) completed!

I've already spoke to a few of you guys, for others who may have missed our discussion, we do currently have two types of line lock systems recently developed. (See images).

For the folks who have already inquired and asked to be on our list, no need to reply again. For others who may have missed, both style kits will be shipping on a first come first serve basis. If you are interested, please e-mail or pm us with your full name, telephone number and email address. The folk’s kits that are shipping will be contacted by the end of this week. If you wish to pass on the kit, there is no obligation; the next person in line will fill your pre-order. IF you are not contacted, you should be on our next batch, rest assured, you will be contacted either via e-mail or phone.

Once our initial short-run kits are built and shipped, there will be about a 2-3 week wait until we are on par with our typical 24 hour shipping system.

A little bit of background on our kits, they are a direct bolt-in. No re-bending or flaring of lines is necessary. Kits will come complete with pre-formed hard-lines and associated fittings. The kit will include our typical 2 switch electrical system with remote LED and remote LED indicator. Flip the master switch, the remote mount LED illuminates showing feedback the system is armed and ready. Use the second momentary button to activate the solenoid. When not in use, shut the main toggle switch which deactivates the entire line lock circuit so accidental deployment cannot occur.

As pictured, all kits are built with pre-formed hard-lines. I've recently had a few inquire about using braided lines to move the line lock in a different position (or if we will be offering them). We do not advise adding braided lines to a braking system, this will reduce braking efficiency and increase brake “sponginess” due to braided line expansion. Never add a braided line to a brake system, use them to replace a rubber line if they are damaged or old. Unless absolutely necessary, you will never see one of our kits using this method. Some use them as a generic approach to provide a basic install kit, but it is a poor approach to design.

I believe most will find the location of our linelock setups very clean, not limiting installation of other accessories or components.






Cross referencing our other post regarding 2010 Camaro Drag Wheels (17” diameters), please view http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=47609 . I’ve recently added wheel images mounted on our customers 2010 Camaro. Those will be built and shipped on a first come first serve basis as well. They are built to order and will take ~2-4 weeks to build at this time.

Please let us know if you have further questions or comments.

That is the price. There aren't discounted pricing available for any of these items. We could raise it up to 200.00 and then make a "discounted pricing special"...we really don't like playing those games though.

Orange10, let me if either of you guys have additional questions. All kits are in stock ready to ship within 24 business hours.

If you click on the little "?" next to the option, it will pop an image up for you.

Orange. I'll be in the office on Monday.

Makes it possible to fully lock up the front brakes without any pressure going to the rear brakes allowing for some kick-ass burnouts!!!!

Line locks are used to lock the front wheels so you're rears can spin freely. This allows you to pre-heat and clean the tires for more traction. As long as the line lock is activated, the front brakes stay locked.

You don't have to use a line lock system, if you don't, there's only two things you can do...1 )stomp on the gas of which the car can't be controlled or sit still while you're cleaning the tires or 2) powerbrake which you step on the gas and the brakes but the power overcomes the rear brakes. This keeps the car in one position but you'll place undue stress on your drivetrain, wear brake pads and risk warping your expensive rotors.

It appears you may have never used one. If you've ever watched races where you see the cars sit for a few seconds heating the tires (of which the car doesn't move)...then you see the car appear to unlock and suddenly drift forward. This is what the car driver is using...it is a line lock system.

Here's a video of an F-body I randomly found on youtube.
or


If he didn't have the line lock system, you would not be able to control the car like that.
