I've got a brand new GT350. I sold my 1964 GTO with a 469cid stroker motor for the Shelby. My Old Goat was old school all the way. When I wanted to launch it at the track, I would hold the car in the lights with the line lock, hold the RPM with my right foot, and drop the clutch with my left foot. It was crude, but that's how it was done.
Enter my GT350 with computers, 526hp at 7400 RPM. I get it that the line locks are there for burnouts. And I get it that "Launch Control" is mostly just a 2-step rev limiter (plus when in drag mode the rear suspension softens to allow more weight transfer, and then the entire suspension eventually firms up for high speed driving as the car speeds down the track), and let me know if I have any of the technology wrong here...
So correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think I can use the line lock WHILE also using the launch control. Or can I?
Mind you, I only have 136 miles on the car so I'm still breaking it in, so I'm more just learning now, and not out beating the snot out of it until at least 500 miles to allow the rest of the car to break in too (ie, clutch, rear end, etc).
Also, please elaborate on how to properly use the line locks. I'm confused by the 15 second countdown and the OK button. Again, I only spent 2 days behind the wheel so far, so bear with me.
