Default Shepherd Velox E8 1/8th electric on-road kit coming soon.

Shepherd Velox E8 1/8th electric on-road kit Preview
Shepherd have a first official preview of the Velox E8 1/8th electric on-road kit available. After collecting first experience with a conversion kit developed in cooperation with Swiss company TTB Shepherd now introduce a purpose-designed car based on the European Championship winning Velox V8 EC. The car features some new design approaches such as the use of a single 6S LiPo mounted in the same area as the fuel tank on nitro-powered cars with a suitable battery being available soon from Shepherd and other manufacturers. Taken over from the nitro sibling are the suspension, the 3-belt drive train and other features like the laydown steering servo. Another feature is the possibility to mount standard 1/8 brushless motors and ESCs as well as the high-end components of Swiss company TTB without any additional parts needed. For the use of standard components a 7075-T6 aluminium motor mount and a carbon plate for the ESC are included in the kit while the TTB combo can be mounted directly to the
chassis plate. Also included will be a high-quality 7075 T6 aluminium chassis plate for optimized engine cooling with a carbon insert to protect the battery from heating up. The kit is set for a release in December with more details and images becoming available soon.
