Powertrax

I was wondering if the powertrax no slip traction by Richmond gears would be good for my 454 85 gmc? I want amazing traction, would this be the right thing or another way?

The Eaton Posi works very well and is a lot smoother on the street. If you need ultimate lock up then get a Detroit Locker. The No Slip isn't the best way to go, especially if you have been doing one wheel burnouts already. This severly damages the inside of the differnetial case and causes a lot of problems with the Power Trax.

Ahh I've heard a little bad things about the Detroit, but would you say it's suitable for the street just as much as the strip?

I put over 140,000 miles on my Power Trax, but that's in a 4X4 truck that I drove to work every day. I wouldn't use one in a performance car (or truck) because there are better differentials out there for that. The Detroit Locker is a great drag race differential that also works well on the street. I had one in my Camaro for many years and only took it out to test a new Dura Grip. They do pop and jerk some, just like the Power Trax, but they are much stronger.

X2 on the Detroit Locker If you want the best. You may hear a click or clunk but yes it is suitable for street or strip.

I've got 20k on my Locker and no problems.

It really works great in the rain with the big Hoosier pro street tires.

Very strong diff.
