Schelle broke new ground with the 1/10th 2-piece hub concept on the B5M series. Fast forward a few years and now the best hubs on the market are available for the 67mm driveshaft setup in the B6.1 and B6.1D kits. Available in black or blue anodize, the B6.1 hubs include the SCH1400 Offset 67mm Bearing Inserts to fit the kit axles, sold separately. Racers with B6 hubs also can upgrade the 67mm conversion inserts for B6.1 fitment. Lastly there is a B6.1 Carpet Hub Set, Black version which comes with -2mm upper caps and ballstuds.
The 2-piece Schelle hub design allows fine-adjustment and increases durability. The upper cap design can space away from the main hub with ballstud shims, allowing racers fine “in-between” adjustments for the rear upper link location. The upper caps are shared with the B6 and B64s design, with the same parts used both left and right. The upper cap design with a shorter washer stack reduces leverage on the outer ballstud, as well as increasing shock clearance for the turnbuckle.
B6.1 Aluminum Hub Set Features:
- Fits 67mm CVA Axles used in B6.1 kit
- Uses B6.1 axle height adjustment inserts for 3mm of adjustment range (trim off tiny aligment bump).
- 2-piece design with replaceable upper increases adjustment and durability.
