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.

torque management is like ABS, Traction control, and most other programs/functions to me. if it means the car is trying to control itself, i dont want it. when i want to "lose control", i dont want the car trying to gain it back.

I dunno...the disciples who drove the V6 cars said they were very capable of such rubber-shredding feats.

The G80 has a terrible reputation due to lots of seizing and breakage.

There is also a type that sends 100% power to both wheels but allows the outside wheel in a turn to freewheel faster than the driveshaft requires. I've always thought it's a good idea but just recently read about it on a truck forum.

You're probably getting it whether you want it or not, and unlike ABS/traction control/stability control, you probably won't be able to disable it with a button.

oh? how can you get 100% to both wheels? wouldnt it be 50% to each wheel?


seriously tho, id love to hear the name of this rear. most all rears except for ones with lockers or the spider gears welded allow the outside wheel to spin faster than the inside one, part of how the differential works.

Nope, most allow the inside wheel to spin slower...which is why you can spin one tire while the other one sits still.

Read up on differentials. Open diff spins one wheel...Posi-traction is open during cornering, locks during hard acceleration... Locker is as implied, both wheels turn same speed, even while cornering, like in a better 4WD vehicle.

I think the V6 might be peg legged because the G8 V6 does not have a locking diff available but it is standard on the V8. I the think if there are 2 V6's, the non DI will not have it but the 300hp DI will. Just my opinion because I want to base it mostly off of the G8.
