How can you cut the front brakes off and still have back brakes? Running disk on front and back.

You should be able to undo your line to the front and put a plug in it some people have a seperate master cylinder for the front brakes for going down hills

They are a manual valve that you can buy that goes between the brake lines on the front. It almost works like a line lock on a drag car but it is not electric its manual. You will have the brake line go to the valve back out of the valve to the front brakes . Its a push-pull knob is pulled out only the back brakes will work when the knob is pushed in all four wheels will work

Drag Racing uses a Staging Brake but I believe that is controlled by the Transmission

The transmission break is called a trans break totally different than a line lock the line lock works off of 12 volts solenoid . A trans brake locks the transmission and between reverse and low gear so you can hold the car still on the line . While the car is held to the floor . Your line lock is designed just for a burnout
