No Posi in a T-Bucket, to dangerous, an it doesnt help.They make cornering through exit ramps difficult. The low weight of a t-bucket does not work well with a posi

I agree. A friend had one in his bucket, an 8" as well. His wife decided to show off, smoked the tires, broke an axle, which made for an instant right turn and stuffed the front end under an Armco guard rail. No one hurt, but the bucket - a set of Hallcraft wheels, the Walker radiator, electric fan, the grille shell and head lights were trashed. The posi went to the scrap yard.

HUH?? I have a powertrax lok-rite in my T w/ an 8", works great, clicks a bit around corners[ I kind of like that] , nearly 500 horses& an equal amount of torque , I don't feel it's dangerous in any way, shape ,or form !!

If you don't know how to drive it , you shouldn't !!

bucket rears

i'd say NO lockers.... a friend had one and doing a slow turn into a drive way it just pushed it forward.. a pain in the butt.. he pulled it and put in a regular posi.. much better.. i don't have a posi in my bucket and i can only turn the tire about 15 ft before it alway hooks up.. then hold on...

Interesting post. I have one of those too,(a girlfriend that likes to show off).I guess she can't drive it then.... I want to boil the tires off it. But I still need it to turn.I only thought the posi would kick in under load.?

Yukon has a unit that is a little "Less" aggressive but works very well. It works very well.
