Those of you who have bought an Eaton TrueTrac, where did you get it from? Did you find a retailer in Australia or have to ship it from the USA (or elsewhere)?
Surely someone on here has one!
Harrop sell them don't they?
Subscribed, I was wondering this same thing yesterday
I've bought both mine from Summit Racing in the US. No idea of freight cost to Oz because I've brought them home in my luggage.
I've installed trutracks that came from summit, front diffs on Cherokees and most wrangler diffs going locally doubles the cost. If you need to use the diff sensor on the housing I know a company that can help with that too.
Yes but their website has indicated the Dana 30 TrueTrac to be "out of stock" for months now.
Freight from Summit is about $100 AUD. They also put Australian GST on top!
Were yours for 240's? i.e. Dana30 diffs? What was the Eaton part number of the ones you bought? I've seen a few for Dana30 diffs with differing part numbers.
Mine were for 144s, so Dana 30s. They have a different unit depending on the ratio: from memory they change point was 3.73:1 I'm pretty sure this is what I bought for my 4.1 and 4.56 diffs:
The JEGS site confirms the 3.73 and up for that LSD:
A quick look didn't reveal the unit for below 3.73. Maybe it's out of production?
Well my gears are 3.73, so I imagine both units would work for me?
Trusting my memory here... I think that Volvo ratios don’t have the changeover of the Dana30s - they all have the same offset as the 3.73+ ratios.
this is the one @Raebird got and the one I’m thinking of getting
Yes, I got mine on special at the time, but VPW is the company that listed it.
VPW seem to be the winner when it comes to sourcing it within Australia as well as price - at least $100 cheaper than getting it from Summit.
@Raebird are you happy with your Truetrac? Is it completely silent?
Anything is better than a locker, Ive been seriously looking into the trutracks too for the past few weeks and arrived at the VPW page as im so beyond over the clackity nature of the internal ratchet. I would never recommend a spartan for a road going car
Ben sells the wavetracs that are a helical LSD, but with a supposed modification to prevent them diffing out when one wheel is off the ground.
Apparently one can re purpose the G80 tone rings on the Trutracks
Super happy with it, the truetrack is silent, the 4.10 gears I put in are noisey under deceleration, I think my pinion needs a bit more tightening... 😁
I've run a PowerTrax No Slip Traction System (https://www.powertrax.com/product-info/no-slip-traction-system/) for the last 14 years or so, it's bulletproof and definitely gives full locking, but it's a bit of a pig, makes low speed maneuvering difficult, and worst of all has a ridiculous amount of backlash, I'd say at least 1/4 turn of the tailshaft worth. Maybe I'm getting old and want a more compliant ride...
I've looked at the WaveTrac and it looks great too (as is all of Ben's stuff, got some on the way right now actually) but the price is just too much for what I want to spend.
I've heard a lot of good things about the TrueTrac, based on what I've read it's not quite a 50:50 locker, but I'm willing to give that up for a smoother and more silent ride.
What will you be doing with your PowerTrax if you replace it?
I need something for our Mysterybox 740 but don't want to fork out for a new one, ideally would like to have something like this donated to us (nudge nudge, wink wink)...
You can have my spartan if you want it @Raebird, Its clackity but it works :D
That’d be awesome! Will PM you.
