Does anyone have any experience with either Tractech’s "Detroit Gearless Locker" or "Detroit E-Z Locker"? I noticed both are pretty cheap ($285 and $220 for Ford 9"), so I am considering getting one for my '63 Falcon Ranchero. If anyone can give a quick review of the one they have (or had), I would appreciate it.

Quick question on terms for a sec,
Lockers = Posi?
or are these the type of lockers off-roaders use?

I found a few online reviews of the gearless locker, but they were from 4x4 people so I was hoping to hear from someone who used theirs for occasional drag racing. However, if does a good job of helping traction going up the side of a mountain, I would think it would do a good job anywhere.

I am running the E-Z locker in my 70 Torino, been in there for about 2 1/2 years and 25k miles. sounds like hte detroit when you go around a corner, Its just as good as any other posi unit I have had, no complaints here.

I installed a Powertrax limited slip. The one for $400 that is a locker but it is really smooth. You can't hear it go in and out like a Detroit Locker. You don't know it is there unless you shift into second in a turn while accelerating briskly then it hits hard and you get sideways!!!:D
