Shepherd Velox V10 Ackermann plate & linkage parts

Shepherd Velox V10 Ackermann plate & linkage parts

Shepherd have a new option part for the Velox V10 Pro 200mm nitro on-road car available in the form of an updated steering Ackermann plate and linkage parts. Due to a much smaller steering differential angle, the new 8mm servo saver Ackermann plate provides even more steering and a completely different, more aggressive overall handling. Prototypes have been successfully tested at the this year’s European and World Championships and also at the ENS in Fiorano with a higher corner speed noticed by all drivers. The servo saver Ackermann plate is available as a set including new 4.9mm uniballs and ball joints or as a single part from now on. The new uniballs and ball joints are also available separately as a replacement of the standard parts to eliminate play in the V8 and V10 steering linkage while allowing smooth operation.

Teemu Leino continues with HB-HPI through 2015

Teemu Leino continues with HB-HPI through 2015

Team HB have announced that Teemu Leino has extended his contract to drive for the HB racing team. A mainstay of Team HB since first signing with the team, the Finn is a European Champion in the electric touring car class but his focus is now 100% nitro, and he is one of Team HBs most versatile racers, racing at the top level in 1/10th nitro touring cars, 1/8th nitro track racing and 1/8th buggies. He has been instrumental in developing the HB R10, R8 and D812 and has been a great teammate for every member of Team HBs international factory team. In 2012, Teemu was TQ at the Worlds with the R10 nitro touring car, and Team HB is confident of more success for Teemu with the R10 and other HB racing cars.

I look forward to another season with HB-HPI Racing. They give me the best cars on the market for all my racing categories. Also, the team work is really great in Team HB. I look forward to another year working with great people and having some fun at the track. I want to say thanks to Tatsuro Watanabe and Hiroyuki Kasuya for this opportunity. See you at the races next year.

Together, Teemu and the entire HB factory and R&D team will help continue to develop and improve HB racing cars for more race wins and championships, not just for themselves but for all HB racers. We are very excited to see what Teemu can accomplish with the HB R10, R8 and the World Champion D812 in 2015.

Lucas Sanford wins at Gun Smoke Classic

The recent Gun Smoke Classic race held at IERC Raceway in San Bernardino, CA saw a tight battle of Lucas Sanford, David Jenson and Brian Sullivan over the top spots in the 1/8th E-Buggy class. Brian Sullivan had a very good run in the first heat taking the TQ but Lucas Sandford would take the overall TQ in Rd1 by 2 seconds and a near perfect run. In Q2, David Jenson pressed hard for the entire race, but Sanford had another great run taking the win. Sanfords 2nd round TQ meant he would not have to race the third qualifier, and would start on the pole for Sunday’s A-mains, with Eric McNeil 2nd and Brian Sullivan 3rd.
