The holes where the clutch shoe is sliding on are a bit larger on the Shepherd then the Mugen. So the shoe's are not the same in this regard.

I found some old black mugens and the holes are wider apart by approx 0.2mm. Sand each hole in by 0.1mm should fix this problem. But the mugen is heavier as well and may be the compound is different too so I am sure will have a different feel with same set up. The tapers angle looks very close so thats good. I am going to try this week.

thanks for input

You can only use one kind of offset wheels which is known as the Kyosho/Mugen offset.

I am very impressed with my week old Velox. First club race proved that this ultimate racing machine can be tuned very well to anybody's liking. With the endless tuning options available, I was able to dial in my car and make the A-main on its first outing. Good Job! Congrats to Chris Verano of Team Sheperd for taking 1st place at GLARCRC once again!

I'm glad you like the car Chris. After the first couple tanks you looked really comfortable with the car. Congrats on putting the car in the main on your very first time out with it.
