Looks like this is Kurt Wenger's company. Kurt was one of the engineers of the B4, and also was an engineer at Avid. I'm curious to see what comes of this, and what option parts we can expect!

There was some discussion of an AL chassis for the B4. It will be interesting to see if this was just a bit too late as the B5 is hitting the streets.

Lots of B4s out there still. On a club level you will be seeing them for years to come.

It would be a wise move as a new company to focus on the new products though. I would guess that to be the case. It may be some time before we see stuff. I just wanted to share this to drum up interest.

Yea there was plenty of interest around ROAR Nationals and Worlds about the new B4 chassis but the talk has fallen off due to the B5. I'll be honest, I'll be getting a B5 as soon as they come in stock...but I think at this point I'm keeping my B4 so if they do release an AL chassis for it I'd have a look just for the additional bling factor.

Hey guys, first product announcement came out last week, we are hoping to launch in late-February.

With the rising popularity of serrated locking wheel nuts, Schelle has answered the call of racers everywhere by introducing a new tool for installing and removing serrated wheel nuts on buggies, stadium trucks, and Short Course trucks.

Sleek and sexy, the 2-piece billet aluminum wrench feels at home in your hand, giving you plenty of leverage to easily install and remove wheel nuts. Both wrenches use an identical handle and the nut driver tips are replaceable between the 7mm and 11/32” sizes. Associated B4.2 or C4.2 buggy owners, have no fear purchasing the 11/32” wrench because you can upgrade to a 7mm driver when you get your B5 buggy!

Features:
1. Plenty of leverage to remove serrated locking wheel nuts.
2. Billet aluminum, black anodized and laser etched with Schelle logo.
3. Fits all popular brand 7mm and 11/32” wheel nuts.
4. Compact design fits in your toolbox.
5. Includes re-usable snap case with Schelle mini decal.

Hi Kurt, congrats on your new company and its first product release. Can you let us know a little bit about the company name "Schelle Racing"? Thanks!

Hi Guys, sorry to be away, but good news is that the site is live and functioning, all the products and pics are up.

Also, about the brand name, here's a brief excerpt from my upcoming Live RC interview:

Mike, it’s a long story but I’ll try and shorten it. First, the brand name Schelle is pronounced like the word “shell” and not “shelley”. We wanted to build a brand that had meaning, but also find a name that wasn’t expected or widely used. We threw out anything that had to do with “coach” or “wenger” and I went back to my roots. My family name is German and I started looking at names rooted in German (hence the “sch” spelling). In addition to having a family meaning, Schelle is our play on the German word for “fast”. A funny story in closing, after we selected the brand name we found out it’s a slang term used to describe when you “smack” somebody.

We’ve even had a few customers find Schelle product pages through Google and call us to order B5 Onyx bearing sets! Customers can shop by product line, or by vehicle brand. The site is constantly evolving, with plans to add video, news, team information, and more. We’ve got lots of ideas in the pipeline so please bookmark our site.

Seems like everyone at OCRC has a Schelle wrench of one form or another. Quality look superb.

Some of the guys at Cactus ran our 44.1 aluminum chasis prototypes. I'm not sure of the demand for a chassis that goes to a car that's 3 years old, so I need people to speak up and email [email protected] if they ever want to see the 44.1 product come to life.
