Sebtarta,

Here you see how its made on the V10 bigger brother, the V8.

The brake disk is integrated in the rear big-pulley providing a great brake system.

Thank you! I love it how you can go through the manual and buy the pieces you need.


The brake system makes a lot of sense, my wallet gets good vibes from this car

Well, I'm back home now and trying to catch up on things here. I do have a V10 with me and I am working on getting the radio gear into it and the rest ready to go. The car I have is still the prototype plastic but when we were in the office on monday a bunch of production samples came in for other plastic parts so I now have the upper/lower bumper, steering uprights, rear uprights, sway bar inserts. I didn't get the blue parts as they were using those for the final fit/finish of the car. I know they expect to have a lot more in by the weekend and hope to have complete pre-production kits for the drivers at the Euro's. I'll probably have the same and I think they are hoping for production kits in August (I hope before we head off to the WC). Everything looks pretty good and I'm ready to get some laps in on the car!! With this weekend being a holiday weekend, I won't go run but next weekend I will be at the track for sure! I'll post some pics as soon as I have a few minutes!!

Ok found a video showing the brake system

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.



But the comment on the video makes sense, doesn't the heat created by the braking affect the belts?

Explain how that should happen? Its better to ask yourself what happens with a disk attached to the 2-peed shaft (vibrations) related to the belts.

But overall... As Team Kamikaze should say:

The days (for real delivery) can be counted!

Regarding the heat issue on the brakes affecting the rear belt, I'm sure if Shepherd found a problem with that during testing on the 1/8 scale v8 they wouldn't have released it in their v10 model.
Has there been any issues with the rear shock location since it seems like it would be the first part to be hit during a rear end bump from another car? Seems like all the other companies have moved the rear shock in front of the rear shock tower to prevent this from happening, but because this car will be using rear upper arms instead of a link, this location is not possible. So any problems or issues regarding this?
