Racing, off-road, and street performance enthusiasts can now select the traction control of a limited-slip differential or the full-on power delivery of a full locker with the simple flick of a switch.
Tallmadge, OH (PRWEB) February 03, 2013
Now available from Summit Racing Equipment, the new ECTED Max-Locker is an electronically controlled, mode-selectable differential. It is controlled by an on/off switch mounted near the driver. In the “off” position, the Max-Locker acts like a conventional limited-slip—as torque increases, the separating forces within the differential gears increase, compressing the clutch pack and sending torque to both wheels.
Flipping the switch to the “on” position activates an electromagnetic coil in the differential, which engages the pilot cone with the differential case and applies force to the side gears and center block. That compresses the clutch pack, creating a solid, locker-style axle assembly.
