Shepherd Velox E8 1/8th electric on-road kit

Shepherd Velox E8 1/8th electric on-road kit

After the first preview in November Shepherd finally release detailed information about the Velox E8 1/8th electric on-road competition car. The vehicle is based on the European Championship winning Velox V8 EC nitro car and it offers nearly the same balance which is possible by using a one-piece 6S LiPo battery mounted in the same area as the fuel tank of the nitro-powered car. Dedicated batteries will soon be available through Shepherd and various battery manufacturers. Making use of many features seen on the nitro variant, such as the complete suspension, the 3-belt drive train and other features like the laid down steering servo the performance on the track is similar or even better compared with the nitro version. The car allows the use of standard 1/8th scale brushless motors and speed controllers as well as the high-end combos of Swiss company TTB without any additional parts needed. For the use of standard components a 7075-T6 aluminium motor mount and a high quality carbon plate for the ESC are included in the kit while the TTB combo can be mounted directly on the chassis plate for a perfect fit. The Velox E8 comes with an high quality 7075-T6 aluminium chassis plate for optimised engine cooling with a carbon insert to protect the battery from heating up. The kit is available from now on.

RDRP Ultra ball diff & thrust race greases

RDRP Ultra ball diff & thrust race greases

Revolution Design Racing Products introduce their new line of dedicated greases for the use with ball differentials and thrust races. The Ultra Ball Diff Grease was previously sold under the Vampire Racing brand and now makes a revival in Revolution Design’s chem series. Although gear differentials are a more common sight in today’s vehicles ball differentials are still a welcome tuning option when running in low to medium grip conditions. The grease is designed to perform in off-road buggies, touring cars and pan/formula cars. The white-colour ball diff grease comes in cups of 5g. Also new is the black thrust race grease. Containing finely ground graphite for improved load stability the lubricant is ideally used on the thrust races of ball differentials. Like the diff grease the thrust race lube comes in a handy cup containing 5g of grease.
