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

July 23rd2019

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.

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.

Gun Drilled Front Axle Shafts

January 30th2019

Two-time King Randy Slawson is well known for having one of the lightest Ultra4s on the lake bed. Pushing that theme even further, on a mission to “make the IFS guys cry” (his words), we are excited to outfit this new product into his Bomber — the all-new Pro Series 40 Splined, Gun Drilled, Front Axle Shafts. There’s something magical about having a 40 splined shaft that is both lighter AND stronger than its solid 35 spline counterpart.
