Shepherd Velox V8.2 1/8th on-road kit – Coming soon

Shepherd have released more detailed information and images of their forthcoming new Velox V8.2 1/8th nitro on-road kit. The biggest update to the previous model can be spotted at the front which was completely redesigned to add more setup possibilities without sacrificing the proven geometry. The new lower wishbones can be attached in three different positions to adjust the arm length while the overall wheelbase can be changed by 2mm. The redesigned top deck offers a completely different flex characteristic for the front end while the rear flex system has been simplified by removing the small ball bearings. The front upper hinge pin brackets can be connected to the new front bulkheads to add further flex options.

The completely redesigned 7075-T6 chassis plate offers additional options for carbon inserts to optimise the flex and air flow. Various other parts have been improved in detail such as stronger gearbox bulkheads, the radio plate mount, updated front and rear shock towers, the redesigned rear body mount centring plate, the rear body mount itself, the front and rear uprights – which can be equipped with optional carbon aero discs. To honour the world championship winning heritage of the Velox V8 platform, the latest edition includes a range of high-end racing parts such as aluminium wheel axles with CVDs for the front and the rear, lightweight pulley adaptors, an adjustable aluminium servo saver or the reverse clutch with an high end clutch shoe.
