Our 40 splined Ultimate Unit Bearings just got better, with the welcoming of 2 new wheel bolt patterns. In addition to 6 on 5-1/2″ pattern, 40 splined Ultimate Unit Bearings are now available in 8 on 6-1/2″ and 5 on 5-1/2″ bolt patterns. As of this post, these new options are currently out of stock (thanks KOH), but they are rolling fast and in time for anyone after that perfect 2015 King of the Hammers upgrade. Online ordering available as always, head over to The Spidertrax Store for full details, http://www.spidertrax.com/products/Ultimate-Unit-Bearings .
When we set out to build the markets strongest off-road unit bearing, little did we know just how much impact our creation would have. We’ve seen our Ultimate Unit Bearings pop up in just about every application you could think of including one of our latest finds, a back-flipping Mini Cooper ( http://wp.me/pCSYo-Rp ). Time to add-in another unique installment, custom one-off Wide 5 edition Ultimate Unit Bearings. Complete with a massive Wide 5 bolt pattern and integrated rear mounted brake hat register, these in-house designed & manufactured Ultimate Unit Bearings will certainly grab anyones attention. Have a unique bolt pattern you’re after, send us an email and let us know. We’d love to help out!
Say hello to the all new 40 Spline Ultimate Unit Bearing. Same proven design as our existing 35 splined Ultimate Unit Bearings, but now with a 40 spline axle shaft option. Yes, it’s a big deal.

Among a number of products being manufactured today, we have Side A in progress for our Ultimate Unit Bearings. These are machined out of a solid piece of domestic grade chromoly steel with multiple CNC operations, heat treatment, and post heat-treat machining for those extra precise surfaces. Yes, a lot goes into this part.
Now these are the kind of returns we like to see. In preparation for King of the Hammers, Jason Scherer shipped back his Spider 9 IFS parts for general inspection. Best he knew, parts were just fine, but for a race like King of the Hammers it’s always best to be prepared.
So, after a season of Ultra4 racing, including the top honors spot Jason grabbed at The PSC Brawl in Blackwell, how well did his Spider 9 IFS prototype parts hold up? In one word, flawless.
All four Ultimate Unit Bearings are as tight as the day we shipped them, and shafts are straight as an arrow. Since parts are already torn down, we’ll set Jason up with two new IFS stub shaft bearings and seals just to be safe, but that’s it. These parts are ready for another season.
Always nice to see prototype parts in action, handling their job as they were intended. That’s our look back, time to move forward. Back to work we go.
