What is the best brand for a Line-Lock kit on these cars? Are you using shiift knob with button or button mounted somewhere else?
Please and thanks,
Please and thanks,
Dave I have the SLP kit but haven't installed it yet and also wanted a momentary switch.How did you make out with the install. Thinking about the SLP kit, but would like a momentary button instead of a switch. Where did you mount it?
2 qwik personal observations:Dave I have the SLP kit but haven't installed it yet and also wanted a momentary switch.
You can follow the link in post #2 above for some ideas. BEACHSCGT500 used a coiled cord w/momentary switch from JEGS; they have several from about $40. Prob could make one from Radio Shack parts for less than $10.
In watching some of the NASCAR videos, those guys have coiled cords going to the steering wheel for something. Maybe using BEACHSCGT500's idea of the coiled cord & plug I would like to have it in my left hand at the steering wheel and just drop it when through and unplug it when not needed.
I bought a B&M "T" handle w/momentary switch. We'll see how well that works.
I wondered the same thing, but in looking at the pics of the Granatelli and comparing them to the SLP, it looks to me like the SLP locks the line from the master cylinder before the split to the separate ft wheels. The Granatelli locks each line after the split. Both lock the two ft wheels, they just go about it in different ways. I like the simplicity of the SLP; easier to install and less to go wrong.The link in BeachSCGT500's post raised a question for me. He said the Granatelli kit uses a separate solenoid for each front wheel. Does this mean that the SLP kit with one solenoid only locks one front wheel?
Bran,I suggest you get a Hurst line lock. It includes solenoid valve, indicator light and 4-amp fuse. That's what I'm using.
Really, do you leave your TC on while your doing a burn out ? LOL I always just turn mine off. So my ABS doesn't know jack....the granatelli kit has two solonoids because the ABS needs to know whats happening at each wheel. If you put one solonoid for both, you could run into problems with the ABS...so I've been told.
The granatelli kit for the 2010 is deceiving. You need longer lines and you need to mount it behind the shock tower (at least that where i did) because there isnt enough room where they want you to put it (in front of the air filter). In the end, though, im happy with it.
also, I have a momentary button on the shifter, which i feel is the best. That way i dont have to take my hand off the shifter to switch off a toggle. Why would anyone have to search for a button on the console when your trying to fly like a bird?
You can't do a burnout with the Traction Control on. It will stall the car. Believe me I have done it more time than I care to discuss.....LOLReally, do you leave your TC on while your doing a burn out ? LOL I always just turn mine off. So my ABS doesn't know jack....
The single solenoid is inserted in the "single" line from the master cylinder before the proportioning valve. The dual solenoid systems place the solenoids in the two brake lines at the wheel, after the proportioning valve.No I dont leave e TC on during a burn out! But I do leave the cork on the fork! not muther?
Any who, I went with two solonoids and it works good. Why funnel both seperate lines into one point and then split them again when they are meant to be seperate?
Ya got that Brother Doc.The single solenoid is inserted in the "single" line from the master cylinder before the proportioning valve. The dual solenoid systems place the solenoids in the two brake lines at the wheel, after the proportioning valve.
JMHO, but the single solenoid sys is easier to install and has fewer parts to go bad.
