How is the PowerTrax locker?

What do you guys think of the new PowerTrax No-Slip locker. I saw it in the Spring / Summer Four Wheel Drive Hardware catalog (on page 140). Will this work as good as a Detroit? I would like to get something like the ARB but they are very pricey. Plus I donít like the fact you need to have an air compressor to activate it, thereís one more link in the chain that can break. Are there any on the market that are activated electronicly?

Re: How is the PowerTrax locker?

The No-Slip is a "lunch-box" locker, one that replaces the spider gears in your differential. It is not as strong as a Full Detroit since it will re-use your stock carrier.

Re: How is the PowerTrax locker?

but it is supposed to be stronger than the lockright. it uses straight cut gears instead of the angled one of the lockright. this reduces the forces spreading the carrier.

Re: How is the PowerTrax locker?

So are there any electronic lockers or are there only air?

Angled gears in a LockRight? I installed a pair last year and the teeth were straight cut? Am I missing something?

Re: How is the PowerTrax locker?

the no slip is also available in a full carrier version.

and the regular lockrights do have beveled teeth, this is why they are known to crack some differential cases under a load.

There are electric lockers, but only in Toyota Land Cruisers

Re: How is the PowerTrax locker?

The teeth on the lockright are angled. If you look at it from the side, the face of the teeth is flat, but the sides of the teeth are cut at an angle so they mesh better. From the side, the teeth look like an inverted V with a flat spot at the bottom.

Something like that. The new ones don't have the angle
