Shepherd Velox V8 Ackermann plate & bumper brace

Team Shepherd have introduced two new optional items for the Velox V8.2. The new 8mm Ackermann plate allows to fine tune the steering geometry even more. Under certain circumstances the 8mm plate gives more rotation and higher corner speed, especially in small and tight corners. The new front bumper stiffener is milled from high-quality carbon material and fits the Velox V8.2 as well as the the V8 and the E8 “4S”. Like the previous version it’s held in place with the screws of the front body mounts but it allows more flex at the front end which increases the steering slightly.

Shepherd Velox V10 AWS 1/10th chassis

Team Shepherd have released the Velox V10 AWS nitro touring kit. The latest variant of the successful V10 platform has been developed in cooperation with team drivers and selected customers around the world to take a big variety of skill levels into account. The kit features the advanced weight system chassis plate that allows the use of sliding weights at the lowest possible point of the car. By moving the included weight forward or backward the balance of the car can be fine tuned in the pitlane with ease. The related battery mount has been updated to a carbon plate instead of the composite version that was included in the AWS set previously. In the rear end the geometry has been updated slightly by moving the lower hinge pins closer together. The camber link carbon plate has been reinforced to increase the durability and aluminium dogbones and the according wheel axles replace the CVC driveshafts and improve the overall handling. The front and rear carbon shock towers feature new shock positions allowing finer adjustments of the shock position while the updated radio plate supports made of 7075 T6 aluminium give more room for a clean wiring of the electronics. Furthermore the clutch bell has been upgraded to the light weight aluminium version and the front body mount carbon plate has been reinforced significantly as requested by many racers. The kit will be ready for shipment in a few days with the upgrade set for Velox V10 2019 owners following very soon.
