    Anyone tried the powertrax "no slip traction system"? I'd like to get some opinions. It sounds almost too good to be true. A regular mechanical automatic locker with good (at least better) road manners? I'm underbudget for ARB's so I'm thinking this might be the answer.

    I have one in my 73 40 and have only good things to say. It is much better than the old locker I had (now in the ft) Only issue is that your tire pressure must be almost exactly the same on both sides to make it work best

    I think the air pressure thing is like that with most any locker. I run lock-rights and if I let my pressure get much out of balance I can feel it while driving. Maybe worse with one than another.

    I have run a no-slip in my daily driver Fj60 for about 3 years now and I have zero complaints. It works exactly like its supposed too and other that adjusting your driving style a little you'll never know it's there.

    just feathering the clutch during low speed turns and the tire chirp when taking off, not a big deal at all.

    You're probably already aware of this, but I guess the introductory prices are finished after December 31st.
