I mean the first one, no euro conversion or 2010 kit, just the original kit.I think it's the 2008 kit.

It depends a lot upon the upgrade bits...
In any case I would go for the 2009 upgrade set with a new pulley-set. The only tip I can give is to use the 2-speed brace.

Hi Guys,

Ran a Test day yester day the track is similar to cordoba in that , it's a fairly easy layout,but Hard to go Fast, The chassis was good using the Volta Setup as a Baseline, I think I can Spring Up, to make it a little more direct, I was running the Blitz 06, and i saw the Fast guys were running the Blitz 09 body,so i am mounting one to try.

I am battling a little with the motor Clutch Setup, but am going later this afternoon to try and work on it a little more, and see whether i can get Some fighting fit Stallions to pull my Wagon.


Any clutch setup tips would be greatly appreciated.

Also i think I am Geared a little long in 1st running 16/50 . Does anyone Know if shepherd Make a 15 T pinion? At 5,500 ft here the motors strain out of the corners.

Thanks

Karl

Hubs, you mean Uprights? Small bearings with excenter or the normal ones?

Default Setup Velox

Hello,

I need some help on the steup of the front. So far the front of the car is slow to react.

As a starting point i used Richard Volta from the shepherd web site

The only difference is the position of the front wishbone position that I set at low position.

To make it a bit more reactiv I move from 4mm to 6mm front upper arm position and rise the anti roll bar.

These changes make the car turn a bit better but not as much as I would like.

I would like the front to turn more like a 1/10 elec DTM on carpet could do.

I was thinking about reducing the track width.

Any idea to improve the setup of my velox?

I would go to 253 or 252 up front. I'd also go with a 3mm swaybar in the rear.

Hi Pooh, did you switch from Mugen to shepherd? What are the choice bodies to run, I have a central but the car does not seem to like it, thinking Blitz 09 or P909?

Cheers mate
