Detroit lockers for cornering?

I have a 68 Camaro that I have been having some differential problems with. I broke the case on my traction lock (I have a 9 inch). I now have an Auburn pro series posi which worked great for a while, but it isn't working so well anymore. I was looking into getting a detroit locker. The car has a 500hp small block, and a tremec 5 speed. The car has a lot of suspension work, and is set up for handling. I take it to the dragstrip once in a while, but I am on the street mostly. I also like to abuse the rear tires quite a bit. Will a detroit locker lock up in a corner when power is applied? A little noise doesn't bother me, as long as the car handles well. I have heard mixed opinions on lockers, so i'd like to hear from some of you guys who have tried them.
