Prototype True10 Housing

October 13th2023

Bigger is not always better… but sometimes it is. In partnership with Healy Motorsports and Gearworks, we are excited to prototype this brand-new Signature Series housing designed for a Gearworks True10. With a ring gear diameter (actually) measuring 10″ in diameter, coupled with a massive pinion gear, this rear end will be a game changer—more pictures to come. For now, enjoy the eye candy to get through the weekend!

1480 Portal Stub Shafts

September 29th2023

For over fifteen years, Spider 9 axles have powered more top podium finishes than any other axle on the planet. From the early days of 26 spline Suzuki Samurai shafts to the latest gun-drilled 45 spline Ultra4 racing axles, we take pride in making the industry’s best axle shaft for any off-road application.

We are proud to release these latest H1 Portal 32 spline axle shafts with that same spirit in mind, now sized for 1480 u-joints. This one-piece billet axle shaft is manufactured from our race-proven E4340 chromoly material. Every cross-section is optimized to provide the highest strength in a webbed design capable of a massive 50 degrees of steering. Coupled with our precision in-house turning, milling, and splining operations, this stub shaft will perfectly fit an H1 Portal box every time.

Spooky Shreds!

October 25th2022

As All Hallows’ Eve approaches and the days become shorter it is only fitting to take to night for some Spooky Shreds, featuring vehicles aglow from a wide range of TYPE S lighting elements. Combining the driving talents of Formula Drift professionals, Vaughn Gittin Jr., Chelsea DeNofa, Adam LZ, and off-road champion, Loren Healy, Spooky Shredsis a non-stop thrill ride paying tribute to everyone’s favorite fright night. Adding another ingredient to the cauldron of fun being cooked up is an original track—Spooky Shreds (Fox Body)—by an artist who is no stranger to costumes, “The Masked Singer” season one winner and multiple GRAMMY award winning artist T-Pain.

Shot over the course of two nights at the Drift Mansion in Pomona, MO— a haunted playground that also doubles as an AirBnb—Spooky Shreds features over 2,400 Mustang RTR horsepower and 800 horsepower from Loren’s Ultra4 4400 Bronco. Pyrotechnics, FAA cleared lasers (yes, for real), a massive pool jump, triple tandems and more come together with the Ford powered vehicles to make this a night to remember.

Hundreds of feet of TYPE S LED lighting were affixed to the three Mustangs, Bronco, and used as props as they navigate the night, making their vehicles come alive during the marathon nighttime shoot. The same TYPE S LED products used in Spooky Shreds are available for purchase at AutoZone stores nationwide.
