**This package includes 4 pistons, the rear pistons are pre-drilled to 1.3mm and 1.45mm split which was the best during our testing.**

The Schelle 6x1.3 flat piston set has a split drilled valving for front and rear outdoor tracks.  It was compared over months of testing and is ideal for Emulsion (no bladders) shock packages.   For the rear suspension, we 4 holes larger to 1.40mm to reduce pack and increase on power traction, while the front are split with 2 x 1.40mm holes for better bump handling on the front end.   

Recommended for Emulsion (no bladder) shock.   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.   For truggy, we do recommend flat front pistons to limit the suspension lifting on power.

Testimonial:

"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.
