Even Serpent ditched the Serpent offset wheels, I believe only the PT1 is still using them.

There are a lot of places near the UK, check this link out

Money?
Work conditions?
Money?
Appreciation?
Money?
Work location?

There are plenty of reasons to change jobs.

Money?
Money?
Money?

But what could e sketchy about this?
Robert had a contract until the end of 2008.
Contract expires and he's leaving.

Maybe they couldn't agree on the conditions of a new contract?

Another thing is that Robert had to move quite far from home to work for Shepherd.
As far as I know, he will home office for Mugen.

Ok the official word from Patrick who is the owner of Shepherd is that Robert has made the decision to leave on his own but he is staying until the end of the year for the rest of his contract term. The reasons I will not get into but there are some other things that have been arranged and new things are coming along with the replacement that at this time we cannot speak about. So the answers are no Shepherd is not going under. No they are not going to have problems. Hope this will give you some info that you want. When more comes up I will make sure to post it here for you.

any word if they plan to redue any parts besides the pulleys. i think the universals are having a little problem too. on the second weekend out with my car both front universals broke one was when i was taken out during a qualifier one was during a main when a car flipped in front of me in a short shoot. any word on if there is going to be a replacement a little more hardy.

I had a good time at the region 12 race this past weekend. I was able to qual in the 3rd position with my velox and finished 5th in the main. The car worked great all weekend. I also ran the IDM tires . I was very happy with the quality and stiffness of the wheels.

They have already changed the material of the pulleys now and I have spoke with them and they are already on the way.

Default hop ups

I had a chance to install some new hop-ups today. The transponder mount, euro conversion, and wheel nuts. All the parts are very nice finish and fit PERFECT. I'm going to try them out tomorrow and I'll try to get some pictures. I've also been running the adjustable sway bar over the last couple weekends and it makes adjustments very easy. All parts should be hitting the hobby shops soon.

If you look inside the axles they are threaded...The wheelnut screw into the axle aand replace the quick release.
