Default comparison of shepherd to motonica

Hi, I am new to posting so I hope this works. I was wondering if anyone out there has driven both the 2010 velox v8 and the Motonica p81 pro? If so, would you please compare the two.
Thanks for the support
Joe

What I heared from one of my teamdrivers... the V8 is easyer to drive and listens better to changes.

Well, Shepherd SHOULD have won another title. I tq'ed the region 2 champs and was lapping the 2nd place guy with 9 min to go when I popped a motor. I'd be happy to post my slick, bumpy parking lot set-up (which was AMAZINGLY good) but I warn you, it's WEIRD

Pre worlds, I doubt it.

Want to run at least one of the other two. Just not sure yet.

Default Toledo MWS Setup

Attached is my setup from the Toledo GLC. I used the same setup this past weekend except I ran 600 rear and 800 front shock oil. I changed oil as it was 20-25 degrees colder this past weekend.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Can you upload your parking setup? Here en Mendoza (Argentina) there is not a permanent track and the info could be very useful.

thanks

I actually tested Pooh's car for a tank on Happy hr @ Homestead car was really good very responsive ton's of steering setup was on the money if you could only see Pooh's face when I started to drive it hard

You asked for it. Here is my TQ set-up from the regional. Bumpy and slick parking lot track. Small in size but pretty quick and flowing.

Car is a standard V8 with no CEFX parts except for the bulkhead brace and front shock tower. Standard plastic, eccentric hubs with the bearings down all the way around.

Front:

Shocks: white springs, stock pistons, Losi 40wt oil, lowest hole on tower.
3 degrees camber to start, adjusted by wear, 1 degree toe out.
long wheelbase.
Flat sway bar.
Upper arm position up, no spacers under the deck.
-1 droop.
Ackerman, bellcrank in the back hole, plate adjusted out (I think, need to look at it again)
Tires, Jaco 32's 66mm
Track width 253mm

Rear:

Shocks: white springs, stock pistons, Losi 42.5 oil, one hole up from bottom on tower.
3 degrees camber to start, adjusted by wear, 3 degrees toe-in.
Optional adjustable bar full soft (blades flat, inner hole on arms)
Lower hinge pin position, full UP (this is the key)
Upper hinge pin position: My TQ run was with it down. Moved it up which settled the car down and made it easier to drive but was slower. Left it up for the main.
2mm spacer between upper arm outer ball and upright.
Droop 10mm
Track width, 261mm I think but need to measure to be sure.
Tires, Jaco 35's 71mm

Body, protoform 909 mounted at 21mm with Shepherd rear post extenders in their highest position. Gurney was pretty high, maybe 10mm.

Ok, it's a bit off the wall but if you want a car with really aggressive steering that still has good forward bite off the corner, give it a shot.

At the momen I plan to attend the pre worlds together with Josh Cyrul to give support to all the Shepherd racers.
