it has come to my attention of recent that the rear brakes are soley controlled through the abs system. if i'm not mistake, if the accumulator is not working then the rear brakes won't work, or something like that.

i wondering if, there is a way to do line lock electrically. somehow putting in a switch so as to allow yourself to cut off the rear brakes.

i do somewhat believe this to be a bad idea, seeing as tampering with the only system that can keep you from nailing the car in front of you always sounds like a bad idea.

just thought i'd put that out there.

XR7 Dave has line locks on his car. I don't know the details, but it did take 2 kits since the front brakes are on separate feeds.

I would not want to try and disable the abs or accumlator to try and create something similar to line locks--these brakes are too problematic already, you'd be asking for trouble.
