Hi Alex,
Sorry i probably worded that wrong, what you said was what i was meaning. Sorry for the confusion.

Hi Alex, i am not a Velox driver but i am passionate about the sport and watching new cars evolve into fast machines, i love the competition.

I believe you should send Michael aka Novarossi to the worlds, he is also very passionate and each week he dreams of being the world number 1 he would be an asset on the Shepherd team

Unfortunetly, it was a tough choice for Shepherd between me and Marc, but we agreed it was best to give the youngster a shot.

BTW, rcmushroom is selling your car in the "clearance bin" for only $345

morning,
check this out
http://www.cefxspeedshop.net/
Josh Cyrul is the exclusive distributor for the US of A
You can also contact him to get information about a hobby shop in your area.

@ awins
wich battery do you use, did you use the shepherd Li IO Battery with 1800mAh.
If yes you have to be sure to charge it in the right way.
It is a 2cell Li Io battery with an PCM modul that will protect the battery.
No shortcut, no deep discharge and no overcharge.
But if you charge it the wrong way you can probably destroy it, same like with
the Li Po ?

regrads

Hello,

the Chassis plate has some holes for weights like V8. When will they be available for the V10? And do you plan some other upgrade parts to spend some money on?

Cheers

hey there,
hope you are all fine.
Well, about the optional parts, we are still testing a few parts that will be released.
For sure we will have a front oneway/solidaxle with lightweight outdrives,
for sure we will have some weights for the front, i think we will make two
different for the front as you need one if you use the differential and on if you use the one way !!
Also we will have a stronger spring for the servosaver for high traction, these are in stock already.
We will leave for the worlds warm up on 28. of february and will have some days of testing. After that we know more about needed parts.
So stay tuned

regards

Alex

Marc will not come with us to the warm up race.
