Shepherd Velox V10 & V8 options
New for the Velox V10, Shepherd have released a full set of shock absorber springs. The light green standard springs are included in the kit, while the dark green springs are a little bit harder and the grey springs a little bit softer. This allows to fine-tune the V10 accordingly to different tracks. Also new are the softer floating piston springs that are available for the Velox V10 and the Velox V8. They create less rebound for an overall softer shock absorber setup by having more coils compared to the standard one. As many drivers requested a harder servo saver spring for the V10 for high grip conditions this spring is now available as an optional part. Still protecting the servo from being damaged it offers more pressure on the servo saver. The existing range of pinions for the Velox V10 Competition Clutch is now completed by a 16T pinion for the first gear. This suits very small tracks where a lot of power from the bottom is needed an joins the previously available 17T and 18T pinions for the first gear and 21T, 22T and 23T for the second gear. To adjust the off-set at the Velox V8 several shims are needed. Shepherd have extended the already existing range of shims by a new 12x16x05mm version and are preferably used with 12x18x5mm bearings so they don’t touch the outer ball bearing ring. Finally, they have created a new decal sheet for the Velox V8. These new decals are included in the kit and are available separately from now on and sport the “Velox V8″ logo and the ram-head in different sizes.
