Schelle Racing Innovations have introduced a new carbon fibre motor plate for the Team Associated B6.1, B6.1D, T6.1, and SC6.1. The rigidity and the strength of the carbon fiber laydown motor plate have been tested at OCRC Stock Nationals while winning the 40+ class. Schelle took the motor plate up to 3.5mm thick (with a clearance cut for the slipper clutch) so that it would hold the motor rigid while still shaving weight off the chassis. The carbon fibre part only weighs 8.3 grams while the aluminium part weighs 11.4 grams.
