**Jan 2024: This RC8B4.1 package includes 4 pistons, the rear bevel pistons are pre-drilled (3x1.5, 2x1.7), Fronts flats are drilled (4x1.4, 1x1.5) unless otherwise requested.**

The Schelle Fat Boys piston lineup is built around the concept that a thicker piston will limit flow around the outside forcing oil through the valving holes.  For bumpy conditions, the 2.2mm versions are milled out in the center, so the valving path is only 2.2mm tall, reducing pack for bumps but keeping the outside height tall so that the suspension won't flutter, and can pack properly on big jumps.   It gives the best of both worlds for lower grip... great bump handling while still packing up for the larger jumps.

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.
