ULTRA SS Chassis - ARTEC/Crossed Up

ULTRA SS OFFROAD RACING CHASSIS - YouTube

PRODUCT LINK

The Ultra Super Sport chassis design was inspired by years of competitive rock crawling and desert racing. The idea was to make a chassis that would perform as well as it looked. To increase overall performance, weight and size were taken into consideration and the chassis' radius body lines and distinctive Camaro grill makes it stand out in the crowd.

With any rock sport chassis design, weight is a big concern. A minimalist approach has been taken with the Ultra SS chassis that allows less tubing than other chassis on the market, without compromising the safety of the passengers. A majority of the tubing on the chassis is 1.75" outer diameter, .120" wall thickness DOM seamless tubing. The remaining tubes are 1.5" OD and 1.25" and the wall thickness remains .120". By using less tubing that is thicker, this allows maximum space for packaging components in the chassis.

Main features and benefits:
  • By utilizing small block engines, the motor can be set further back into the chassis for better weight distribution.
  • Adjustable 4-link brackets are incorporated into the chassis.
  • Rear suspension will allow use of either trailing arms or axle mounted shocks.
  • Uses off the shelf fuel cells up to 32 gallons
  • Front or rear mounted radiator
  • Sway bar tubes front and rear included in the bumpers
  • Use of long rolled tubing for high visibility and attractive lines
  • RACE PROVEN! We've tested the design in many races including Dirt Riot Southwest SERIES (1st Place), American Rock Sports Challenge (4th place), King of the Hammers (9th place), and Top 5 finishes in regional short course and rockcrawling events. From high speed rollovers to quarter pipe launches, the chassis has needed NO REPAIRS.


Chassis Specs:
  • Outside width - 55 inches
  • Roof width - 48 inches
  • Overall chassis length - 12 feet
  • Height from bottom skid to roof - 55 inches
  • Bare chassis Weight - 525 lbs
  • Wheelbase shown - 112 inches
  • Wheelbase range - 108 inches to 116 inches
  • Rear travel - 21 inches (trailing arms), 16 inches (axle mount)
  • Front travel - 14 to 16 inches
  • Engine size capacity - Any SMALL BLOCK
  • Tire size range - 37 to 42 inches

Optional upgrades include: .188 wall rocker tubes, skid plates, control arms, gas tank mount, axles trusses, battery mounts and much more, all the way to a turnkey vehicle.

We are excited to announce a partnership with longtime racer and chassis builder Mike Klensin of Crossed Up offroad. Anybody who knows Mike, knows that he has been professionally competing in rockcrawling and rock racing for many years with many wins and podium finishes under his belt. He's a great guy and we're excited to work with him. He has taken his experience in racing and chassis design and fabrication and made the Ultra SS chassis. Not only is he a shop owner with the tools to build a chassis, but he is an actual racer that knows what it takes to design a lightweight, strong and safe chassis. If you don't believe us, watch the video again. The roll at the end caused ZERO damage to the chassis.

Artec Industries is now the official source for the Ultra SS chassis. We will be taking orders for everything from just the bare chassis to full turnkey. If you have questions, we'll answer them for you. if you are looking for a quote for additional add-ons not on our website, please email us directly with a list of what you want. Please also include your shipping address so we can quote you shipping.

As we always do with new products, we are offering the Ultra SS chassis at 20% off its regular price. This will only be available until July 30th so act now. It will never be this good of a price to anyone, ever. That makes the 2-seater $3750 and the 4-seater $4150. Currently the build time is about 4-5 weeks for a bare chassis but as orders begin coming in this month please understand the later you order, the longer it might take. We'll provide an ETA at time of quote.

We also have a great deal on freight shipping for this chassis. It weighs about 525 lbs and its obviously basically as large as a car but we can ship it anywhere in the lower 48 for anywhere from about $200-$600. For a more accurate quote, please let us know your zip code and whether its a commerical address with a forklift or dock or a residence and we'll get you shipping price.

Lastly, this is a fully assembled, fully welded chassis by a longtime chassis builder and professional fabricator. It will arrive to you ready to be made into a roller easily within a day. It is also very adaptable from anything from a trail only recreational rig to a full blown race vehicle.

If you have any questions please let us know. Thanks.

Here's some shots of the optional interior.




Here's some shots of how the engine sits in the vehicle. It is set back towards the middle for great weight distribution front and rear and set low to lower center of gravity.

We have pricing for additional components. PM us for pricing on what you'd like.
Here are the fabricated rear links we recommend.



Also don't forget to pimp it out with some Artec trusses and other Artec parts. As a BONUS, we will offer 15% off total off the retail price of all Artec parts when you purchase a chassis. That'll save you alot of money and get you fully decked out and ready to roll.

partial roller question

Can you get me a price on the chasis with links and suspension. Also does the chasis come with the engine transmission mounts? I am looking at using a small block with th400 and atlas. Does it matter which front differential is used, right or left drop? my zip is 81507. Thanks

Freight on these is very reasonable for such a large item. Typically about $200 to west coast and $400-500 for east coast. Give us a ring to get a quote.

I have one of these chassis that I'm building up into an Ultra 4 buggy.
This chassis is well engineered, and is very adaptable to different drivetrains.

If you are thinking of buying a chassis this one should be strongly considered!
