    I'd say heel and toe it. Costs nothing and is functional. The money you'd use on a line lock can be used somewhere else, unless you do plan on really racing it

    Well.. if you have cheaper aftermarket drilled and slotted rotors, I would recommend the line lock... had less than 2,000 miles on my rotors.. and only did a couple of burnouts on the Bandit Run and at Year One and already had 4 large cracks in both rear rotors to the point I had to replace them.. thats why I say line lock...

    wow, crack sounds pretty insane. Not sure if it was from just burn outs. I have done quite a few brake stands with drilled/slotted rotors and nothing went wrong. Not to mention for a new age rotor to crack you need extreme amounts of heat, more than you should be seeing.

    True.. but the engine was stock.. the rear was stock.. had the front and rear brakes done at the same time.. and the fronts were find afterwards... but the rears were both cracked before I got home from the run less than 2 weeks from installation... so took it to be mostly due to "cheap" rotors (even though they were $500 for the set) and the burnouts...

    This is true, using the foot brake for long burnouts is not a good idea. Not only does this heat the rotors and pads...the big problem is all that heat goes right to the axle seal and bearing.

    People that do this alot find that down the road they have axle seals leaking. In extreme cases I've seen the bearings chew into the axle, because the intense amount of heat in that area doesn't allow the gear oil to do it's job.

    Get a line lock!!! It's cheaper than replacing all the other parts.

    That doesn't hurt much of anything except tires

    Again, this thread is about doing stationary burnouts!

    I miss my automatic Cutlass. Stationary burnouts were sooo easy. I have yet to try dancing the pedals or a second gear burnout. I'm too scared I'll stall it in front of my buds

    Sweet! Hadn't watched that one. Really like the big smokies next to the highway and the one at the traffic light. People must have been thinking, "WTF?!"

    The one at the traffic light was probably the dumbest thing I have done.

    The guy in the car next to me gave me a thumbs up once he caught up.
    The in-cab footage of that is great....car got REALLY sideways.

    Every time I even think about being a little stupid behind the wheel I happen into a cop. Great vid, it really does show it better from in car.

    Normally that goes for me too.

    Got lucky that day. I killed off a set of Continental's that had 1/3 tread left in about 2 hours.

    Been there done that. I had a few drinks and thought I was gonna re-inact this Luos video. I ended up stalling it in front of many fine looking ladies, one of whom was sitting next to me.

    I saved my pride my burning off an almost brand new pair of BFG KDW's for a few minutes. I woke up with an extreme hang over with two piles over rubber behind my car and had dug two holes in the concrete.

    I will never do that again with expensive tires.
