so will the Detroit locker let me get around on the autocross course and a road course okay? I have only used one in a drag car before. All my auto crossing has been with limited slips or open rears. Is the locker going to be too twitchy?

So internet research has given me this answer. yes it can be used, BUT one must roll in into the corners without any trailing breaking (so the lockup will release) and when getting on it out of a corner be ready for some torque induced added push. I am going hunting for a true trac.

I ran a Detroit for years, read all the hype on the Tru-Trac and bought a couple. Wish I had my Detroits back!!

It's really a personal choice...you might get a dozen different answers to this one. I run a Gold Trac (limited slip) currently. Ran a spool in my Pinto but it went through rear tires quicker. Liked them both. I think most guys are leaning towards the Tru Trac these days, more predictable, a little better tire wear.
Is this a dedicated track car or is it a combo track/street car?
