I meant that you install a linelocker so that you can use your normal brake as a handbrake

The the VPW one would be the B&M line locker. It works so that u put ur foot on the brake, hit a switch and your front brakes lock, then u remove your foot and the front brakes remain locked and the rears are released..i reckon this is s**t for skids coz u wana come on and off the brake constantly so you can do some manouvering round the skid pad.....i reckon the best line lockers is a tap on your rear brakes

All you need to do is install the locker on the rear instead of the front and turn it on before you hit the brakes.

ok the low down on B&M launch control

if you install it the way it tells you in the box it will act like a launch control
(master cylinder to line in and rear brakes to line out out) so you just push the button
and put your foot on the brake and it will lock your brakes so the harder you push
the brakes the more it will lock them, then release the putton and you can launch,


for line lockers (locking off the bake brakes)
just swap the brake lines around so (master cylider to line out and rear brakes to line in)
this will let you lock off your bake brakes so you have no brakes in the rear
(with foot off the brakes push the button and than your rear brakes will be locked of so (NO BRAKES) only front
and you can all so still use the launch control part of it too
(just put your foot on the brakes and push the button and take foot of brakes) thay will be locked on
