Default GLD is getting a new Burnout box!

I'll probably be one of the first to lay rubber on it...



The GLD website got a makeover too. Great Lakes Dragaway

It was much needed as it was junk. It's nice to see that they are finally updating some things...

I never liked that it goes uphill at the burnout box, but the track always sticks well and that's really all that matters lol

My only issue with the uphill burn-out box is the fact that my factory line-lock won't work on any kind of incline. But I can't really tell if they're fixing that.

Explain. when the switch is on it closes a solenoid and traps fluid on the other side holding the brakes. mine will work on any surface, even upside down after i roll it if i feel like flipping the switch for it after a wreck lol. So confused.

Yours is likely aftermarket which does not use a sensor to determine if the car is level.

Why would a sensor even exist? what is its purpose?

It's a brand new Mustang. Probably some kind of "safety" that the car must be perfectly level for "insurance reasons" at Ford.

I don't have a line lock so having the burnout box go uphill benefits me not overrunning the brakes.

I'm sure that's why it has the incline. I just struggled doing a burn out at GLD over the fall. I swear I had all my various traction aids off, and it still kept dying and dropping the revs with my foot on the gas. And then @Bru was doing it without issue in the same car. I guess I need to go out and practice the next time we get some rain.

I don't recall if you ever got a run with all the nannies off, but I remember you having the car in track traction mode and not completely off a few times.

The first 2-3 passes I for sure had the traction control partially on. Then the rest I held down the traction control button for a few seconds and it said it was turned off. The light that I initially thought was the traction control was really just stability control. Oh well, I need to get back to the track this season and get some solid 12 second passes.
