Powertrax Locker: 1/4 mile time increase?

hi everyone! i have a 67 camaro that currently runs around a 13.6-13.8 second quarter mile. it has an 8.2 inch open differential and i am planning on putting a powertrax lock-right locker in it. what kind of numbers do you all think it will put out with the new differential set up? thanks!

Your times should improve, but it is hard to say how much.

If there is a way you could have someone videotape your run from the line to the 60 foot mark so you could review tire slippage this might be a starting point to see what and how much slippage you are starting with.

I am guessing you are already doing the tire pressure adjustments and whatever else you can to get things hooked up right for your times.

The lock-right will just lessen chances of slippage, and MAY increase your ET's, but it wouldn't likely be a whole lot.
