Mustang owner since 84
I had someone share a video of me at the strip. I was warming up the drag drag radials and noticed both tires spinning, then just one. Isn't the Torsen supposed to lock alittle better then a clutch type diff?
Thx Steve great infosteveespo said:The Torsen does not due well under shock load drag strip launches. It will break, and relatively quickly. A Traction Lok is an OK choice for stock power levels, but a Detroit Locker or a TrueTrac is a better choice for the 8.8. The best thing for a drag car is a 9" swap with a Detroit Locker for the street or a spool for drag track only. With the 9" it's easy to have both, and multiple gear ratios for swaps. Search eBay and RacingJunk.com for used Sprint Cup pumpkins, you can get good deals on super strong, high buck setups. Currie Enterprises makes bolt in housings for about $1300.
