**This package includes Pro-Built 5 Hole Bevel High-Pack Front Pistons (2); this valving comes in the SCH1457 Pro-Built 5 hole Bevel Piston Set.**
This pair of high-pack 5 hole front pistons is beveled for faster rebound and typically excells on bumpy/un-even surfaces and with lower grip. Mix and match whatever combination you'd like for your surface.
The Schelle high-pack front pistons are good in hot weather or more girp....still giving the car the added grip of the 5 larger holes. The 5x1.5 base valving was updated in 2021 over months of testing and is ideal for hard bladder (waffle style like RC8B3.2) shock packages on outdoor and indoor temporary tracks or when you want initial softness and less progression (pack) initially. For the rear suspension, we recommend starting with 2 holes 1.60mm, but for lower grip conditions we recommend drilling out a 3rd hole 1.60mm and increasing the rear oil to 42.5 wt or 45 wt AE.
Updated in 2021 for hard bladder shocks. What you'll notice on the track is the buggy is more plush on landings, less suspension flutter (especially in hot weather) due to the O.D. fit. The faster rebound helps keep the tires planted and won't hop on landings.

"I used the pistons today at the track with your recommended oils and my car was about 1/2 second faster around the track. The car was more plush with more traction. Thanks for the awesome product." -Tim F. (MakinTraxx RC, New York) Conditions: Track was dry and bumpy with a loamy outside.
