I need to decide if the Auburn is worth an extra $190 over a Ford Trac-Lok to take me up to the $1000. mark on a center section.

I plan bigger heads, performer RPM upgrade setup and nitrous 100HP fogger soon, as well as a 2500 stall TC maybe end of summer.

I would opt for the Detroit soft locker. It will last longer.
I too vote for the locker. I have had two buddies blow their auburns with "mild" street motors.
Just my 2-cents
Thanks guys! Keep 'em coming!! Any other opinions??
Powertrax NoSlip is good i hear
locker & aftermarket axles if going to the track much. lockers can be harder on axles than a spool.
