COVID-19 Update for March 25th, 2020

Since the start of the week, and the days that will follow, we’ve been taking extreme social distancing to new levels. Employees are required to be at least six feet from each other with zero exception; in practice, we are more than double that. Suppliers must follow the same six feet rule when delivering parts. We have closed our offices for walk-ins. Sales is working from home. Shifts are staggered over a full 24hr period. Daily and weekly cleaning schedules are in full effect, with additional deep cleaning schedules now added. All in the name of helping reduce the spread of COVID-19 for the safety of our employees, customers, and suppliers.

While operations are not 100%, our team is happy to be operational. Phones are open, machines are running, and our warehouse is doing what they do best. It is an honor to continue the work we do with each and every one of you, and we thank you for that. Best safe, and be smart.

Welded Spider 9s, Pro Series IFS, and more!

July 23rd2019
 By Thom Kingston on 2019-07-23T10:35:44-06:00 | Spider 9 |

Easily our biggest product release since the birth of the Spider 9 some fourteen years ago. There’s a lot to digest with this one, let’s dive right in.

Signature Series Rear End

Our Spider 9 axle is, and always will be, the ultimate builders’ axle. That being said, we’ve been asked more than once to weld up complete Spider 9s. When tasked with anything, we like hitting the ball out of the park and this housing is no exception. Tagged the Signature Series Rear End, take all the guesswork out of building your Spider 9 rear housing by letting our professionals handle the heavy lifting. Welding on rear ends cups is just the start, all Signature Series Housings come standard with 4130 heat treated housing skids, and we even offer full trussing options. Fully tig welded, simply no compromises.

Pro Series IFS

This massive update to our IFS line takes desert & rock racing to entirely new levels. Pro Series Unit Bearings come with massive 3.7″ ID bearings and are packed with a 45 spline rear and both 45 spline & 56 spline front options. This entire line is stronger, lighter, and more compact than our Ultimate IFS line. Here’s a few quick links to get you started.

Floater Ends: http://www.spidertrax.com/uec006

Trussing & Skids

Full circle back to our original comment, Spider 9 axles are a builders axle at heart and we will never forget that. All of the trussing and housing skid plate options available on our Signature Series Housing are also available to purchase separately. Your housing will thank you.

There’s a lot in here, and we are barely scratching the surface. Be sure to head over to our Spider 9 product page, http://www.spidertrax.com/products/spider-9 , and spend some time diving into all the categories and options. With that, I did want to sneak in a thanks to the entire team here at Spidertrax. There’s years of hard work, and sleepless nights, in this release and your dedication means everything.

A huge thanks to the Outlaw Racing organizers, marshals, teams, and media for making us feel welcome last weekend in Oklahoma.
