Mine did that also, I changed the o-ring with a thinner one and it helped quite a bit.

Lelasi almost make Sherperd Velox the new 1/8th Euro Champion.

He led from the first 5 minutes until the last of 45minutes final only to be out due to radio problem. that is totally sucks!

Bad luck indeed.

I saw from REDrc that he run out of batteries at the end so lost control!
Hope can find out what he used, like batteries and servos.

I spoke with Daniele right after the race. He led a lap ahead the entire race and his battery went south 2 turns until the end of the race. That is what is bad. Daniele is upset about the finish but very happy for the products that he manufacture and also he represents. 2 turns. That is what is so bad. There were some issues in the pits when fueling and his car was hit and bent the body in. The body was rubbing on the tire and it seems that may have caused the servo's to use some extra current and cause the battery to fail. The bottom line is that the Velox was fast. The IDM engine was fast and the tyres were good. For him to perform that well is outstanding and I am sure everyone knows who won the race there. But racing is racing and he did finish 4th.

Yeah, no one can deny Sherperd performed well in the Euro 08.. and reading it live from redrc.. i thought for sure Sherperd Velox got it already.

But damn. it was just not happening. At least others know Velox is the force to be reckoned with.

sadly, here in M'sia, well none I know of, has this brand. Would love to try it on the track.

I think there is distributor in Malaysia. There will be at least 4 Velox at the FEMCA from Hong Kong.

The Distributor for Velox Shepherd and SIIM Engine is ATLON RC SPEEDWAY MELAKA.

BM Marshall S/B Operated by Mr. Baharudin is the exclusive Shop selling the products.

Currently, we had four kits running in Malayisa including myself. If you do need to make any enquiry about the kit can always contact Mr. Baha. Under Malaysia thread, it was already up for few months under ATALON or perhaps you had just missed out.

As for HMS You would see 2 Kit Racing as the rest of Team Shepherd Member are going for the PICCO CUP.
