During straight-line driving, the Detroit Locker captures 100% of available torque and sends it equally to both wheels. In turns and maneuvers, the internal components unlock to allow one wheel to spin faster or slower as necessary (free wheel). When the vehicle returns to a straight-line driving path, the components re-engage and provide power to both wheel ends. Each application is highly engineered, tested and validated for a variety of uses including racing, towing, off-road, rock crawling and street/strip. Choose the Detroit Locker to get the strongest, most durable performance differential available today. The Eaton Detroit Locker can enhance traction in a variety of vehicles. Units are currently available for front- and rear-axle applications, including c-clip style axles. Below is a list of common uses: Street/Strip, Drag racing, Circle track / NASCAR, Rock crawling, Off-road, Utility Vehicles, Light, medium and heavy trucks.
