It’s no secret that stock racers love the Schelle Racing Nova Slipper Clutch, but racers have been asking for a direct drive option for “big races” when the grip was high and the competition even higher.  Schelle has answered by delivering the new Nova Lockout Plate. The Schelle Nova Lockout Plate enables a direct drive, no slip, link between the motor and gearbox. This is not for the faint of heart, but for racers who are serious about wringing every drop of performance out of their 17.5 stock buggies and trucks.  The Nova Lockout plate weighs 1.5g (it sheds 3.5 grams of slipper parts) and comes laser etched with the Schelle Lockout logo.
