With it’s origins in true nitro on-road racing Team Shepherd is ready to take the next step and enter the competitive 1/8 off-road market. The first off-road nitro car from the German manufacturer will be called Bull X8 with the nitro version release being planned for December and the electric version following in early 2015. More detailed information and pictures will be available soon. Patrick Schäfer had this to say about the new project:
For quite some time we have received many requests from customers from all over the world for a Shepherd 1/8 off-road car so it’s only logical to enter one of the biggest markets in the industry. We are very excited about this project which was a completely new challenge for the whole team.
