Will the v6 be Peg legged?

The mustang v6, is peg legged, meaning that only one of the rear wheels spins, you have to buy a T-loc and install it if you want power going to both wheels.

Will the Camaro v6 be like this?

actually, i believe we will, i feel that GM to save production costs will throw the same rear end (save for different gear ratios) in both the v-8 and v-6 models

Yeah I agree but it will be limited slip not posi trac. Posi trac is rare now days, but would love to have it tho. Just love having that rear end kick out hard when both wheels grip.

posi trac and limited slip are the same....

gm first coined the positraction and positive traction terms, but it is just their way of referring to it.

Yes and no.

Yes GM did call their limited slip rear ends posi trac, but real posi trac is different from limited slip. True posi track has power to both wheels at all times where as limited slip transfers power from one wheel to another.

If I were to guess, it will have the Eaton G80 locker as an option like they do on their trucks.

Theres 3 types of rears

You have the open rear (single wheel pulling)

posi/limited slip rear (both wheels, more power is sent to wheel with least amount of traction)

Locked rear. Theres quite a few forms of lockers. Each does the same, but made for diff useage. Like you have a full spool, mini spool. These are straight line type rears, that dont like to turn sharp.

Then theres the detroit locker, and now even more streetable lockers like the powertrax no slip, and lock right. It's a gear/teeth/spring set up that locks together on the straights or hard throttle, then unlocks around turns.

The locked rear gives the same torque to both wheels un like stock posi/limited slip rears

I don't know why they wouldn't offer the G80 locker if it is offered in some of it's other RWD vehicles as an option.

Torque management would probably kill most of the ability for the V6 to do burnouts anyways.
