first batch is out here in Hong Kong. We have a large but tight track and mostly is Serpent territory.

I saw Sheperd Team in Japan driving it against the Mugen territory and did equal lap time so can't go wrong

The spring should fit in without modification.

I've been running the car for the last couple weekends and I have to say that I'm pretty impressed with the car. It handles very well and the durability is great.

Default Velox

Just a quick note of thanks to Kurt and Dan for tossing a couple of Velox parts my way at the Byrons race.

finally got to run the car today( thanks to the weather). This is my first 1/8

Everything went really well. Love all the Alloy parts and the brakes. I did not change any parts although I bought the mugen ball cups and ball ends but the originals, which have a lot of play, did not seem to have any affect on the car's handling.

The stock gear ratio worked well , most serpents here using 16 pinion. I may try that next week.

I think you can use Mugen Springs. I measured them in n outs are identical.

Anyone tried different clutch setup. I "heard" they are interchangable to the mugen too. I don't have them to try myself.

I've been running a 16/20 with a 49/45. If you're looking for more bottom give it a try.

In regards to the clutches, I think the pin locations on the Shepherd flywheel are spaced further out.

If you are using a Mugen shoe, you need to make the holes in the shoe bigger.

Then your clutch shoe is probably sticking on the pins.
