Toy Fair 2010 – Shepherd

Shepherd Velox V8 optional stiff chassis plate

Shepherd were showing off a number of new parts on their stand including this new chassis plate for the Velox V8. Made from a different material, it is identical in design to the standard part but is much stiffer making it ideal for racing on high traction surfaces. Other new items include a new radio box for the V10, answering requests by customers that have been looking for this to protect their receiver from crashes and splashes. As we announced before the show, the German company now have their own line of foam on road tires which they had on display and finally for the V10 there is now a complete range of optional springs. We were told that we can expect a set of brass weights for the V10 as well as a oneway axle that can be locked by inserting pins in the coming months.
