Shepherd Velox V10 Nineteen 200mm nitro on-road kit

Following the “Nineteen” conversion kit for the Velox V10 1/10th 200mm nitro on-road kit, Shepherd now also announced the full Nineteen specification car kit. The car features a new rear axle geometry, making it more controllable when braking even under difficult track conditions or when hard braking is required. This was achieved by a wider rear lower wishbone distance and an updated upper wishbone mount with optimised upper camber link positions. The updated lower wishbone mounts are manufactured from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium while the upper wishbone mounts are milled from high-quality German carbon fibre material. The lower wishbones have been completely redesigned to match the updated geometry and are moulded from high quality plastics. The rear anti-roll bar linkage is located slightly more to the outside of the wishbone for improved responsiveness and softer steering. Furthermore, the 7075-T6 aluminium chassis of the 2019 car has been optimised. Thanks to improved production and milling techniques and a slightly different layout, the chassis bends significantly less, even under heavy loads, which significantly increases its durability. An improved exhaust pipe holder makes the use of different pipe/manifold combinations of all manufacturers significantly easier and more comfortable and high-quality ball bearings with full metal seals complete the changes to the new car. The kit has already proven its capabilities by taking the 3rd place overall at the recent IFMAR 200mm Worlds in Miami, Florida is the hands of Shepherd pilot Edu Escandón.
