I saw that you are discussing about the bended chassis in your kits, but again i like to tell you you also have to tell this your dealer, or, what will be the best way, the shepherd company, wich means "Tell me if you have problems".
Only if we have some complains we can start to work on it. We have to decide at what point we start to spend money for a changement or something.
You can imagine, if we only have 3 or 4 complains we can not replace a complete batch of something. If we have a problem you guys know shepherd will react immediately. But we need to be informed about the problems.
As we have now also some complains at the fair about the chassis i will check this one more time if i am back on wednesday.
And @ SLO-MTX4
We do not have the "problem" with the 8th scale, we changed the material and made the chassis a little bit softer for easier handling on low grip surfaces.
Unfortunately it was a little to soft for some tracks and drivers so the chassis was bending quiet easy if you crash or even touch a board.

So thats it for now, think i am going to sleep, tommorow we have one more
day at the toy fair, and after this we can go back to normal.

regards
Alex
Alex, you haven't got back to us re: chassis?

Factory support at WC warm-up

Shepherds top team-drivers Daniele Ielasi (current World Champion), Jilles Groskamp (TQ of the last World Championship) and Josh Cyrul (ROAR Vice-Champion) will be at the track to help our customers and get the best possible results. They will be support by the factory boss Patrick Schäfer who will also race as well as Alex Scholl and Armin Weihert as mechanics.

If that's nothing

Cheers

Just wanted to congratulate Team Shepherd for the great showing at the warm up last weekend. It would be great if you guys shared with us what was tried and tested and how the car behaved in those conditions.

Looking forward to some news.

Just wanted to comment on how great of a roll out we had for the V10 at the Pre-WC. Last year, we had a few races with prototype versions of the V10 but this was the first race we had together as a team with production cars and I must say I think all of us at Shepherd walked away from the event quite happy. 3 cars in the Final (more than the other mfg's - 2 Mugen, 2 Xray, 2 Serpent, 1 Capricorn and 3 Shepherd V10's) and between Ielasi and I, we lead about 50% of the laps in the final. Unfortunetly, he had a flame out running just short on fuel that cost him a solid chance at the win and I had a crash late in the race that put me out.

Patrick was running 3rd in the Semi Final when he had a bad crash in the pit lane that ended his day or we could have had all 4 Shepherd V10's in the Final.

All weekend, we all ran quite a bit different set-ups but as we tested more we started to hit on common things that worked for all of us out on the track. I think with a little more testing we will have a very strong base set-up for the WC track as we prepare for the race in a few months time. I'll write out a set-up sheet and get it posted here and on the CEFX site in the next few days for my set-up from the final.

I just wanted to thank and congratulate Patrick, Alex (coupe), Armin, Ielasi & Jilles for a fun and very productive weekend of testing and racing. Thanks to Ira for the pit work in the final!! For the WC, we will have a few more top drivers in attendance and we most definatly have a solid chance at making a run at the title.

Congrats to Paolo for a great run in the Final and we'll see everyone back down there in a few months time!!

Congratulations Team Shepherd for the great result! It’s very encouraging to see that the car has the same speed as the rest of the field. I think at this early point of his ‘’life time’’ this shows its potential! But in the 60 minutes final run it’s more and more about luck (engine flame out’s, crashes, tire ware ...) and good fitness of the driver. If you look at the fastest laps all drivers are very close.

Good luck in the future!

Default Wow.....

Just begun to build my V10 4 hours ago and I'm almost done with the car; all thats left is the radio tray and building the shocks. Very nice car to build, goes together very quickly and has alot of lighten parts on the car from the factory. Cant wait to hit the track with the car.

hey guys,
no i am back to germany and had some time to recover a little.
The race was really absolutely perfect, placing 3 cars in the final was perfect, knowing to have the chance to win without the problems we had is also pretty good for us. We found some issues at the car wich we need to change, but in the end we raced the kit car with all the standard parts out of the box, except of the front solid axle.
So stay tuned for further information, if you have any questions just ask again, i will be available the next days.

Alex
