The Schelle Racing 12mm AE V2 Split Bevel Screw Mount Shock Piston is a precision CNC machined AE V2 style 12mm 2 hole split valve piston. The pistons feature split 1.6 and 1.7mm valves and a beveled lower edge. The split valving creates less low speed damping and won't pack up as quickly, making it ideal for 2wd front applications when you need more low speed steering feel. Typically use 30wt to 32.5 wt oil when used in front, and 27.5 wt oil in rear.
The 45 degree bevel edge on the bottom allows for quicker rebound damping so the shock can respond faster after bumps in the track and keeping the tires from hopping. Also on large jump landings, the lighter rebound damping keeps the wheels on the track as the chassis recovers from bottoming. This translates to added stability and predictablility. Schelle recommends the 2x1.6 in the rear suspension of any 2wd vehicle starting with 27.5 wt. silicone shock fluid.
Package includes two pistons and the Schelle Shock Piston Tuning Guide. The Tuning Guide explains the handling characteristics of each piston going from the lowest damping (low resistance) to highest damping. Fits V2 12mm shock shafts by Team Associated with "screw-on" piston.
