Default Side Pulley 25T

I'm still asking myself what happened by changing the side pulley from 26T to 25T. It is clear that the Overdrive is impacted, more to the front but I think the overall car ratio changes as well. Does that mean by using the 25T pulley the overall ratio is "shorter" with the result of more topspeed AND more Overdrive?

Kind of but not really because you haven't changed the rear ratio at all and the rears have a LOT more grip than the front so most of us just judge roll out by the rear and ignore overdrive effects.

TEAM SHEPHERDS SHORT PREVIEW FOR 2013

First of all we would like to thank all Shepherd drivers for the great teamwork and the trust in our products in 2012 and we hope that everybody started well into the year 2013.

Team Shepherd will be present at all major European races as well as the World Championship in Japan to guarantee best support to all our drivers.

In the next weeks we will release great news.

For the upcoming season another world champion is going to join our Factory Racing Team to develop new products and push them to the limit at World and European Championships. For sure it is a RC super star and the name will be revealed soon.

Additionally we are working on a few upgrades and also some great new projects for this year. More details will be released in the upcoming weeks.

It might be cheaper to get the new kit. To upgade yours you'd have to get the Flex tray with aluminum bulkhead. Also the new rear bulkhead and assembly. They have also upgraded the front bulhead to allow you to use a wire stabilizer bar instead of the blade . Go to the Shepherd sight and look at the manual and see what parts you have and what you would need to purchase. Good luck with your search.

Default Pirani Pulley Conversion

ZEDRC....

I have looked everywhere for this and have not found it anywhere. What I have found is only an 8mm shaft conversion with lightweight 2 speed produced by Andrea Pirani. If you know where I can find the pulley conversion I would like to see one also.
