Schelle AE V2 12mm pistons & B64 LP battery posts

Schelle Racing Innovations have new Team Associated V2 12mm pistons as well as AE B64 low-profile battery posts available. Starting with the shock pistons, they are now available in three new variants. The 3×1.5mm flat pistons are popular for 2WD and 4WD buggies in rear while the new 3+1 line of split hole pistons, with the +1 additional hole added to give more grip and forgiveness, is better used in bumpy conditions compared to a standard 3-hole. The addition of the small 4th hole gives less low-speed damping resistance, resulting in more traction. It also alters the damping progression relative to a conventional piston, giving less resistance initially before ramping as the shock speed increases.

As for the B64 LP battery post, the complete set allows for the drop-in fit of the feather-light – 150 gram range – LP low-profile LiPo Batteries into a B64 or B64D. Dropping between 50 and 70 grams over a conventional shorty battery, the reduced weight and lower CG allows for faster cornering and acceleration. Racers can use the same baseline setup as the heavier battery pack, but Schelle recommend trying a longer rear link on the hub or tower to gain a bit more rear traction. Also, racers can add 20 grams to the right rear behind the battery to achieve more rear grip and still save weight over a normal battery.
