Default new 1/8 shepherd velox eleven

I wanted to share,my own take on ,this awesome car that screams performance its proven to be,one of the best higher level kits you can buy without breaking,the bank and still walk away with ,a car that will surpass your expectations and then some ..this well balanced design car was designed by ,the new and up rising German driver Robert pietsch so out ,the box its a beast ..the brakes are innovative and the lighten overall weight only added to the cars already fast performance..I look to see more shepherd drivers in the very near future...the shepherd is ,the new beast on the track ...:

Hi everyone, I just want to share that I was a die hard Mugen fan, i think you can see from my nick.

Just 2 months back, I decided to switch from my MRX5 to give the V8'11 a try and what a fantastic decision it was!

The Mugen MRX 5 was a good car, but the V8'11, i feel is definitely much more forgiving, easier to setup and easier to drive. It has a "larger sweet spot" for setup and has tons of steering (on & off).

There are some small issues though with the fuel tank (leaking tank, i replaced it with a kyosho tank) and rear body post but other than that, this car is really pretty much as good and as fast as any other kit out there.

For those considering to buy this kit, dun hesitate.

Can someone here explain again on how the front eccentrics will affect the handling of the car? Lets be more specific by saying "if set on the bottom hole" and "if set on the top hole"..

Thanks!

I am happy to say that cars and parts are also available from TMA Motorsports. Presently we have our "Spring Stock Up Sale" going and all V8 parts are at 20% off during the sale period. We ship within 24 to 48 hours and most orders shipped by Priority mail so racers can receive orders in 2 to 3 days. West Coast racers can purchase parts at trackside. See us at www.tma-motorsports.com
