Locker in a Ba GT

hey thinking out loud gt with say 380rwhp and a 100shot. i dont know how srtong the rear end is in a gt but as its a factory item it couldnt be to strong so i was thinking how hard would it be to throw in a locker, who makes good quality lockers i had a look at the strange items website very very confusing. Would a locker be a direct bolt in replacement. Any info would be great

I cant see why in God's name you'd want to put a locker into it? But I spose if you really wanted to you could just chuck a mini spool into the standard diff.

Re: Locker in a Ba GT

greetings all
a mini spool will be a little harsh on the street & it will put a lot of extra strain on the axles

stick with your first idea & use the Detroit Locker

regards

Re: Locker in a Ba GT

Re: Locker in a Ba GT

i dont see why they would be illegal, i know a few people with cars that have lockers in them one even came from japan got ADR complied and rego'd. So how strong do you think the rear end is. Would it hold up to constant abuse at the track with slicks and 380rwhp and Nos

Oh you mean a Detroit Locker? Sorry, here in New Zealand when someone says locker it means locked/welded diff!

Yeah Detroit Lockers are great, and mini spools certainly arent road legal, and are very harsh on axles.
