Shepherd Velox V10 Pro hard compound wishbones

New from Shepherd and made for the Velox V10 Pro are hard compound lower A-arms. Due to a higher percentage of glass fibres mixed into the raw material the arms are noticeably stiffer than the stock parts, making them ideal when running in high ambient temperatures or on high traction tracks. The arms are a direct replacement and available now.

Team C TC10 long shock conversion kit

Team C TC10 long shock conversion kit

Team C have released first images of a long shock absorber conversion kit for the TC10 electric touring car. So far no information about the specifications are available but by the looks of things the kit will include longer threaded aluminium shock bodies and updated carbon fibre shock towers to accommodate the now-longer dampers. While ultra short low-profile shocks where tried by a number of companies in the past, some of them now move back to “conventional” length units as they offer better traction and easier setup in certain track conditions.
