Shepherd tease Velox V8.2 1/8th nitro on-road kit

Shepherd have released a first teaser image of their forthcoming new Velox V8.2 1/8th nitro on-road kit. The car will feature a completely redesigned front end including new lower and upper arms, steering hubs, lower and upper hinge pin mounts as well as an aluminium servo saver and other details. The steering hubs are equipped with mounting holes for optional front carbon aero discs and the upper hinge pin mounts can be connected to the bulkheads to stiffen up the front suspension while the lower hinge pin mounts feature three pin positions, changing the front lower arm length. Additional setup options come in the form of new lower arms which allow to change the wheelbase by 2mm and also the front upper arms have been updated. With modern 1/8th race bodies getting longer and longer, the front bumper has been updated to give additional support. New to the V8.2 is a redesigned chassis plate that can be equipped with optional carbon inserts to optimise the airflow on high-speed tracks. A smaller and thus lighter front aluminium servo saver and redesigned gearbox bulkheads complete the visible changes. Furthermore the kit will feature some high-end racing parts as a reverse clutch, light aluminium wheel axles and rear CVD driveshafts. More details on features such as the optional battery position and chassis weight kit will become available closer to the release which is planned for end of April.
