Tractech Detroit Truetrac

The Detroit Truetrac, manufactured by Tractech, is the aftermarket?s leading gear type limited slip differential. The patented design of parallel axis planetary helical gears provide a quiet, automatic splitting of torque. Power transfer goes literally unnoticed by the driver - even in front wheel drive axles. The Detroit Truetrac performs like an open differential under normal driving conditions and automatically transfers torque to the wheel with better traction when ground conditions warrant. The limited slip responds instantly to torque feedback, anytime, at any speed.

Detroit Truetrac?s are engineered for front and rear axles, semi floating (C-clip axles) and transfer cases. Proven design, low cost and effective performance all make the Detroit Truetrac limited slip the choice of professionals and traction enthusiasts everywhere.

Great for off-road, street and strip.

The Detroit Truetrac delivers the traction necessary for drag racing and off-road terrain while not adversely affecting handling on the street.

Good choice for front axle. If driving syrface is slick (ice, mud), the front will push,but it is still better than a limited slip or locker in my opnion.

just had installed with a Dana 44 so far so good, I havent had much time to go wheeling, but the truetrac gives no problems with street drivability and grabs good on gravel.

works really, took it up a few steep grades covered in loose rocks and while the rear would always spin one wheel the front was pulling strong together

I need some more time with this but so far it seem to do the job. If I break it I will upgrade.

I just couldn't have a locker in the rear, so I added this to my front D30 - what a difference.

My mom let me drive her 86 CJ7 to mechanics/tech school for 3 years before I was asked to leave . After that I put a True-Trac in when I moved back home. It stripped the R&P w/in 3 weeks. They warrantied it, and I took it to a shop that I didn't work at, and it has worked flawlessly now for 2 years. Now she's not afraid to drive in snow,and it helps me w/my paper route since I'm out before the plow trucks. I now work on a NASCAR team, that I can't mention, and tell everybody to get one. Alot of the houses I deliver pizzas to are very remote, and sometimes I don't even have to get out and lock the hubs. At 362 pounds that alone is worth the cost of this unit.
