    Linelock.


    Or learn to 'dance' on the pedals. Will need a bit of brake pressure to hold the car in place (just enough to keep it from moving) WHILE being on the gas pedal.

    I saw this vid before and I knew i should have asked you directly.

    Thanks.

    Where can I get a line lock? Are they expensive?

    Not terribly expensive.
    I went with SLP's thanks to the pre-bent lines. Luckily, they didn't design it, they just sell it. And luckily I haven't had any issues with it....because they don't back their shit for anything.

    Dancing the pedals is fun but if it is new to you might be kinda hard at first but learning how to do so is a very invaluable skill, best of luck to you and remember practice makes perfect and its fun too!

    Basicly the same as described above, except you don't have to dance. Hold the brake down just enough to keep the car in place....hit the gas.

    Yup. Mine always heats the tires after about 20 seconds and catches and shifts to seconds.. then bogs like a mother.....

    yeah, the SLP fits right in with the pre bent lines, perfect fit on my T/A.

    I went through 2 of em personally, guess they had a bad batch a few years back. They backed em up for me, they shipped me 2 of em free of charge since I bought 2 trying to figure out wtf...lol. All I had to do was ship the bad ones back. But I am the only guy in town that had any issues with their line lock, everyone else installed their first one and have had no issues... dam my luck. hahahaha.

    Easy install.
    Bleeding the brakes takes up most of the time.
    Maybe 2 hours total.

    line lock is the way to go. standing on the brakes is going to be detrimental to your rear brake pads and rotors if you don't have much pad left. the line lock will hold the front brakes, but leave the rears leaving the wheels free to spin. standing on the brakes puts an astronomical amount of friction on your rear pads and rotors.

    Well you don't need to hold the brakes down more than a second or so. Rev it up without hitting the limiter. The tires should get heated rather quickly. But that's just how I do it. I hold the brake lightly for a second or two and release the brake with gas held down for 10-20 ft.

    Yup.. either M6 or A4, line lock is your best way, and a LOT easier on your rear rotors and pads.. <sigh> But in an A4, a simple hold the brakes and mash the gas does the trick... but for the M6.. its a little more difficult.. and have to be a little more coordinated.. just practice..

    But the SLP line lock (what I have in mine) was around $100.. so not too bad.. and a pretty easy and straight forward install..

    All I had do do in my 5.0 since my TA is an auto use left foot to control clutch and sometimes shift to second while doing burnout. Hold the brake pedal with edge of right foot snd rock the left side on the gas peday to start the spin while releasing the clutch. I used to shift to second while doing it to get a hotter faster burn.

    Honestly...I would have never bought a linelock just to burnout.

    If I didn't race and have the need to heat my slicks...I wouldn't have it installed.
