In this work we study the partially constrained vielbein formulation of the new quasidilaton theory of massive gravity, where the quasidilaton field couples to both physical and fiducial metrics simultaneously via a composite effective metric and Lorentz violation is introduced by a constraint on the vielbein. This formalism improves the new quasidilaton model since the Boulware-Deser ghost is removed fully non-linearly at all scales. This also yields crucial implications in the cosmological applications. We derive the governing cosmological background evolution and study the stability of the attractor solution.
