Joe Bornhorst team up with O.S. Engines

O.S. have announced Joe Bornhorst as their latest addition to their team.

Shepherd Velox V8 hard-coated alloy wheel axles

Shepherd have introduced new option parts for the Velox V8 in the form of hard-coated wheel axles that reduce the rotating mass by around 50 percent to improve the acceleration and overall handling of the car. The CNC-machined wheel axles are made from high-quality Swiss 7075 T6 aluminium which offers high strength and durability. A special hard-coating prevents the axles from excessive wear and an additional hole for the CVD pin simply doubles the lifetime. The axles are available separately or as a complete set with CVD driveshafts.
