Shepherd Velox – Brake System

 Shepherd Velox - Brake System

Shepherd Micro Racing have sent us further information on their soon to be released 1/8th scale circuit car, the Velox. Focusing on the car’s “Direct-V-Brake system” they tell us that they had to check many material combinations to find the very best result that they have now. To get durable braking without brake fading, or even complete loss of braking, they had to find the right material, which they did with a special hardware that resulted in great braking efficiency, durable braking, long life brake pads and simple maintanance. With this braking system you can brake hard, with maximum control, and because the brake doesn’t need any complicated adjustments, you can simply assemble the parts in the right place and the brake will work perfectly from the beginning.
