ElliptiX™ - Improved oil ingress

  • Increases oil passage capacity
  • Produces higher oil supply reliability
  • No need for custom-made oil hole enlargement

Race bearings often come with a larger oil hole. In most cases, the larger oil hole exceeds the boundaries of the oil groove and reduces the bearing’s effective surface area. As a result, the bearing suffers from a significant loss of load capacity and hydrodynamic regime stability.

In response, King Racing’s TechLab developed ElliptiX™. EliptiX™ is a newly designed oil slot/oil hole hybrid that improves oil ingress, without affecting the bearing’s surface.  The innovative changes to the slot hole prevent a compromised load capacity.
