i2iSTUDIOS brings up a very good example why doing a proper burnout without a linelock compromises your cars braking system.
Using your foot on the brakes whilst applying throttle to perform a burnout is not at the very least, doing your brake system any favours.
Using a linelock, will only lock the front brakes and leave the rears wheels to spin freely without any restriction of the rear brakes - just make sure DSC/DTC is fully disabled !!

Or, watch it in HD on Vimeo

Quick little demo of our new Burnout Perfection™ Line Lock kit. Now taking orders!

All it does it lock the front breaks so you can do a burnout?

So its the same as holding the breaks and flooring it, or dumping the clutch, except the rear pads are not being worn down?


How many people actually find a use for this for a 335i?

I mean, wouldn't this mod make sense for someone that is CONSTANTLY going down the drag strip and does not want to beat the crap out of the rear breaks?

A burnout by holding the brakes down once a week, will cause more damage to the rear tires than to the rear pads.

Or am I missing something from this?

No LSD. Yes, the product is for track junkies. Saves your rear brakes and prevents one tire fires.
