thinking about getting a line-lock for my manual 392. does anyone have it yet? bringing the rpm's up to 3 grand and then popping the clutch only to jump on the brake and gas just does not work with my size 16 shoes. I know there are other ways to do a burnout but a line lock seems to be much easier.

I don't think the ABS/ESP system has changed at all for the 392s so any '09+ line lock system will probably work.

I'm running this: SLP Line Lock Brake Control Package 05-09 300, Challenger, Charger, Magnum 5.7, 6.1L

I am the 392 test car for Hurst/B&M and should have a line lock kit for my car soon. Hit me up in a couple weeks and I will let you know how it goes. The brake lines are different on the 392 so they have to develop the kit.

interested in a line lock also. do you know of the kit will have all lines prebent and flared so you don't have to have special tools?

You should ask Chris at Hurst. He is subzero05. All I saw was them taking measurements so I havent see the actual kit yet. I know it is going to be located in the rear on the drivers side, vice up front on the passenger side.

Sorry for being stupid, but how does a line lock work? I have an automatic, so I just have "one foot on the brake, and one on the gas" to quote Sammy Hagar. I could see where this might be hard to do with a clutch pedal.

Are line locks mostly/only for cars with a manual tranny?

Thanks.

My limited understanding is it keeps the front brake locked while allowing the rear to release fully so you aren't making the rears spin against the pad resistance during the burnout. I would think this would help auto as well as manual.

Right now the SLP is a good (and instant) choice, but the Hurst will be out soon as well, which will be pretty sweet.

I am also. ;)

Here is a pic of the Hurst line lock kit. We will have the first 25 kits available at a special pre-order price and I have all the details and will post it up soon. Hurst is sending me the kit prior in order to install and test. We'll have a full install write-up and review in our vendor section once it's completed.

That looks good. Count me in! Would you pair that with a Hurst shifter with release button on it, or does the button mount somewhere else? under the dash? Total newb on this.

works great on a stick. had one on my red TA. Should be the same for an auto. if its like my old one. you come to a stop. press the brake and hold it. you activate the line lock by flipping a switch or button. take your foot off brake and the line lock keeps the front brake on. this allows you to press on the gas without a foot on the brake. works great to heat up your back tires at the track. once you are done you turn off line lock by flipping switch and it releases the front brake. thats all there is to it.

I had my switch hidden in my ash tray compartment.

the hurst kit for 08-2010 are not the same or useable on the 2011. The brake lines are different and required a entire new kit to be designed. ETA is yet to be determined on the 2011

^^ Yes, that is correct as we confirmed with Hurst today. We received the Hurst line lock kit to install on a shop car yesterday. But, for now, there isn't a kit for the 2011+ due to the master brake line. Hurst is going to work on it.

Any updates on the 2011 line lock from Hurst? Cooler weather is about 2 months away and I would like to have one for the track. Any info would be great.
