    There are 5 hoses in the kit, one goes from the pumpkin to another fitting, however I am not sure what it connects to, maybe something to do with the ABS.

    The braided hose takes all the swelling out of hard braking, that is the ss hose does not expand when under hard braking.

    then you should invest in a line lock so you don't tear up your new pads and rotors

    It also tears up the axle bearings and seals. They can't deal with the extreme brake heat that is caused by doing burnouts and standing on the brakes. All that heat concentrated on the end of the axle and guess where it goes??
    Over time the seal gives out, even the bearings get scored when all the grease can't get over there to cool them, ends up chewing up the axles too.

    Brake burnouts = bad idea. A line lock is your friend.
