locker or truetrac

In my 68 runing a 9" ford rear end with detroit locker it a little aggressive
for cruising but great it the track. Going with a detroit truetrac more cruising than racing. Just wont both wheel to grab when i mat it.
Input please

I've always had a locker in mine. Never had any unwanted results. But I "just" run 295/50R15s. Though, it is a ton of fun in the rain... (use to be my daily driver back in high school and shortly afterwards) I would guess one can't go wrong with "today's technology" in the diffs made for the street. I don't have any experience with others, though...

Drooling over the ZL1s. It will be my next car if I can manage to pull it off...

Yeah what i had in it was a strange ss street detroit locker it,s great for the track & driving in a straight line but when truning to much of the ratchet sound. pulled it and put the detroit true trac in it,s not bad on take off smooth on the truns. should have change it 4,000 miles ago
Its for sell if any one wonts it

My Locker never made/makes any noises, studdered/shuttered, or any other issues. I also think the car handles good for a '68. Love it! Though, I have big tires and sway bars. But you are probably "safer" going with the TT if you are open to both...

Yeah looked at other suite on this & the guys talked about the ratchet sound. When i pulled it the ajustment was good all gear looked good.
Iam runing M/T 29x15.50-15 with a 4link. Test run on the TT it,s not bad
it no 100% on traction.
