It doesn’t matter where you are, traction is important to you and your vehicle and controlling that traction is handled better with limited slip and locking differentials, depending on your application.
Last fall we hit up the crew at Eaton Performance to get the low down on four of the various differentials it offers, specifically limited slip and locking differentials. If you’ve ever seen the one-tire fryers laying down a single strip while the other rear tire is merely along for the ride, then you know what happens with a one-legger: traction fails.
As we discussed in our previous article, a limited slip differential, such as the Detroit TrueTrac or Eaton Posi units detect when one wheel slips and transfers power to the wheel that doesn’t slip, enabling the driver to get more traction for better off the line performance.
For those seeking the ultimate in traction, especially helpful in rock crawling and other off-road activities, the Detroit Locker or Eaton ELocker will both help in that arena where getting traction full time from both wheels is paramount.
While there are plenty of options when it comes to choosing an Eaton differential, the pros at Eaton Performance can help you make that decision as to whether a limited slip, locker, or even an e-locker is best for your application. If you make that decision and purchase your Eaton differential between now and March 31, 2017, Eaton will give you some traction for your vehicle, and $50 cash back for your wallet – enough for fresh gear lube and with cash left over.
