Why wouldnt the truetrac last? I know of a few trucks over 1k hp running trutracs on the street without failure.

Very cool stuff. Potentially you could use a logic level mosfet transistor. I cant remember PNs or ratings, but you may very simple and cheap be able to drive larger amperage PWM.

I have yet to see a high HP diesel with any sort of tire not eat up a differential. Clutch and torsion style. They will last for a bit, then they wear out prematurely, they can only hold so much. A mechanical locker is your best bet.

Yeah trutracs are used quite readily by pullers around here in the front diff around here without issues to speak of.

After discussions with my local gear center and Eaton I decided to go with the truetrac.

Thanks again for everyone’s input.
