But I will explain my reaction a bit further if there are other people out there who mis-interperted my post.

Shepherd is a relatively small company, I guess the factory has 5-10 people working there, and they recently doubled the amount of cars they offer, from one to two.
I don't think they were able to hire a double amount of people so everyone at the Shepherd factory is really busy, getting the 2010 V8 ready and working on improving and designing optionals for the V10.

For example, they went off to the pre-worlds, in the meantime business continues on so by the time they got back they had a lot of work to do.
Some probably more important then updating a setup sheet, i.e. completing orders, order parts at their suppliers etc.

All I wanted to say is that I wasn't having any doubts about the effort put in by the Shepherd guy's.

But some dutch distributor thought otherwise, and PM'd that I should get off the Shepherd thread because I was bashing them.

I actually stated some pages back, when the car was introduced I really liked it and I was actually thinking of buying one.

Again, I don't want to put any negative attention on Shepherd, I only posted this to clarify my previous post and because someone was questioning the things I stated.

Ah clear answer, no offence.

Hallo,

Yesterday I ran the car for the first time. I used a Novarossi Flash .12 engine. All settings used were standard (kit settings). The clutch and gearbox worked fantastic, nearly no adjustments were needed. In the evening when I checked the car everything looks fine with no signs of any kind of wear.

In two weeks we have the first national race and if everything works like yesterday

Cheers

I ran my v10 for the 2nd time yesterday, I made a few minor adjustments, the car seems to react will with small adjustments, but like you on my first run with the kit setup the car felt very good.
I have found an annoying problem thou, if you have any movement on the 2 speed shaft, I usually run a tiny gap so not to put pressure on the bearings, then the pin holding the 2 speed in place falls out, there is next to nothing holding it in place.
But overall I'm happy with the car.
I'm writing a blog covering the progress of me and the guys in the uk shepherd team running the national series, maybe some of you guys in other countries could do the same, be interesting to see how everyone gets on!

I am completely satisfied with my purchase now, Like u said jas1 the car does react to small changes, I like being able to tell instantly if Im going the wright way with setup, only prob I had so far was the kit diff oils didnot work at all on the tracks I run, I ended up with 300k up front and 100k rear, Great onpower steering, the v10 steering is prob something like evo2s, it turns in much harder than my evo1, and generates alot more sidebite, this race season is going to b a blast, we hav xrays,mugens,rrr,733,my v10,and 3 labs Where I run.....

Now the team is complete... Of course now you see why we have huge expectations for this year's WC.

I am working on my set-up sheet now. Yes, we all have been very busy but we are starting to catch up on all these little things....

For the record - I run the shocks in the outside hole on the front arms... Depending on the rims you use/off-set yes they will touch a little but nothing major.

I have to finish checking my car... Set-up sheet coming in a few minutes...

A little less camber change in the front - Made the car stay a little flatter in the front so the inside rear wheel wouldn't diff out when you drove it hard into those chicanes there in Houston....
