Low Drag Hub Components

Hub Bearing Spacers

Of all the low drag components we offer, bearing spacers make the biggest difference. A 200-1300% increase in hub free spin is common, so it’s a difference you can feel just by pushing the car. However, the biggest difference is in the corners. Bearing spacers distribute the thrust load between both bearings, allowing the hub to roll more freely in the corners. Bearing spacers prevent the typical overtightening of wheel bearings, reducing drag and lowering bearing temperatures. We guarantee your satisfaction! US Patent No. 6,312,162

Low Drag Bearing Kits


Our testing shows a good quality tapered wheel bearing provides the lowest rolling resistance when a thrust (side) load is applied, compared to all the popular bearing options. Racecars are in near constant thrust load. We take quality USA made Timken® bearings and REM® Finish for the ultimate low drag race bearing set.

Hub Assembly Tools

End Play Gauges • Bearing Packers • Seal Drivers

Our Hub End Play Gauges are the quickest way to accurately set-up bearing pre-load spacers. This tool screws onto your spindle and reads hub end play to .0005”. Once an end play measurement is obtained, simply adjust the spacer to the desired end play or pre-load and set the spacer lock. This tool will also measure hub run-out. Arm, indicator and shaft are universal, simply swap spindle adapter for different applications.
