Shepherd V10 differential gaskets

Shepherd V10 differential gaskets

Shepherd announce a new gasket for the gear differential of the V10 car. Together with a leading German sealing manufacturer Shepherd developed a gasket of a new shape and made from a special material. The new material combines the characteristics of a fibre gasket with the positive properties of an elastomer, thus making it possible to produce a gasket that allows for easy installation due to the stable surface tension, excellent adaptability to unevenness at minimum surface pressure levels and very low leakage levels even when surface pressure is extremely low. The new seals are also offer excellent temperature stability and they are available from now on.

SpeedMerchant World GT4 200mm pan car kit

SpeedMerchant World GT4 200mm pan car kit

SpeedMerchant have released first images of the World GT4 200mm pan car kit. The vehicle is based off the forthcoming RoadKill 10 235mm kit and offers a slim carbon fibre main chassis that can take 2S standard, 2S shorty or 1S LiPo battery packs. A new-style easy-to-adjust front suspension is also part of the package as is a class-standard link-type rear suspension with dual roll dampers. The side springs act on the lower power pod plate rather than on the sidelinks for improved precision and better adjustability while a lightweight motor pod makes for a good balance between low weight and rigidity. We bring you more details on the kit as soon as they become available.
