Ford is rolling out a new feature for amateur racers. 

Electric line-lock will be available on the new Mustangs with EcoBoost engines, according to the automaker. 

Steering wheel controls will build pressure on the front brakes and allow the back wheels to spin while the car stays in place.

It's meant to warm up the tires so racers get more consistent times.

Line lock was previously only available on the V8 Mustang GT, but it will be on all 2018 Mustangs expected in showrooms this fall.
