Brake upgrade

My TC has a small block chevy swapped in, makes more power than it needs. When doing a burnout, my front brakes can't hold my car still. Due to my wheels a 5 lug swap is out of the question. Would some aggressive pads and stainless caliper sleeves be able to hold it still? I've heard a couple different brake setups one can run however all of them involve using a custom proportioning valve. I don't want to touch the prop valve or rear brakes at all. I also don't think a line lock would be enough. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

Personally, I think a Line Lock would work well for you.. 100% of your braking power on your front wheels, with no resistance at the rears for the burnout. I would think even if for some reason this didn't work, it is a much cheaper option than the upgrading brake options
