The Capricorn E801 and my own version are based around the TTB electronic package, this contains motor, speedcontrol and battery.

The TTB battery pack is custom made for this car and is a single 6S pack with 4400mah capacity and 80C discharge.
The car in the video used an older type of battery which was only 3800mah.

Here is a picture of the E801 mounted with electronics:

That would be a fun car to run in the mid west series! Would have to find a larger battery pack I suspect though?

Default conversion ?

Is anyone selling the complete conversion for the Shepherd car here in the US? If so, has anyone installed it and whats the verdict?

A lot! i have runned both of them, pro10 is a more passive drivestyle but 1/8 need to be a hell lot of aggression to make it fast and stick to the ground.

Here is two videos of my pro10 and 1/8.

This would be a great class but i could see them wanting a separate class just for the electric 1/8 cars! Also when will the shepherd car be ready to buy? Also is mugen going to offer a electric 1/8 car?

Hello to all and greetings from Sydney, Australia, I have spent the last hour reading this thread and it is very interesting, besides a few posts from pattojnr a couple of years ago it seems this class is non existent in Australia, It definitely is not run any where in any Sydney club. Myself and a few others are trying to change this, we are not professional racers or even seasoned racers, as a matter of fact we have very little race experience between us, until now we have been racing our 1/ 10 modified EP touring cars against each other which have evolved into very fast little 235mm lola bodied and wide foam tyred hybrid pan cars, cars used include Edam Espirits, xrays t4 & t3 & tc6 associateds . One of our crew has an Edam 1/8 electric pan car running a castle creations mmm esc with 2200 kv motor running 6s lipo batteries identical to MikaR 's carbon pro pictured a few pages back, this car is very fast but is heavy and doesn't handle as well as the smaller 235mm cars, we have another racer with a motonica P81 running a 150a hobbywing ( fried 2 rx8 tekins running same setup as the hobbywing ) with either 2700kv 4s or 2050kv 6s, with 4 s lipo he struggles to last 5 min, while on 6s can make runtime.
another recently ordered another edam erazor to run the same set up as the aforementioned edam while I myself have also bitten the bullet an ordered an edam to run with castle mm2 and 2650 kv 4s ( hope this works but am a little nervous about runtime despite 6000mah 80- 90 c lipo's). hopefully within the next month we can start a class right here in Western Sydney.
Thanks for all the information already garnered by this thread , I will report back in the coming weeks to update how we have gone, hopefully all will be good, if anybody locally wants to join private message me for details.
In the meantime good luck to all racers trying to promote this class around the world and best of luck to the upcoming meet in Germany this weekend.
cheers
oldenuff

Oldenuff we have 4 cars up and running here on four cell and we are now working on a rx8 conversion and moving them all to 6 cell.

I will send a link to an image vid latter with one car running. We have all got 966's and need to find parts thus the idea to start the rx8 conversion. We may have 8 to ten running by next year.

Perth boys leading the way maybe
