    I have heard they are not that great...From guys that have used them...Personally have not used.
    some times it is all name and no go.

    So to me it looks like a Ford limited slip unit and if they use the composite clutches it will not hold to heavy spirited driving. I was never impressed with the Ford Track every other clutch was not used...they skipped clutches unlike GM version of this trac lock design unit which uses even clutch every side.

    The next thing that does not impress me is the BIG open windows. I want to see as much material around the unit as possible to keep the case stable from flex.

    That is my opinion on what I see.

    Thanks, Jim. I was wondering if this was a promo from monkey garage or something.

    It’s enough to call it a posi. Nothing more. It looks similar to the original 410408 or 725 units,but with Eaton style gears & clutches. I would not bother with it.

    Like I said you have to take oner apart and see how the clutches are used...Like Trac lock ford uses only 3 clutches out of the total of 7 on each side. NOT very efficient.

    And junk material. They likely have even less of the polycrapinate clutches,and more of the smooth ones. You get what you pay for.
