The trick is to do the startbox just after the lower wishbones i mounted on the chassi. Focus to get the starter wheel in the middle of the flywheel hole in the chassi.

When innstaling servos and reciver you can drill some holes and cut some slots for tie raps into the wire channel in the servo frame.

Finial got a chance to run my Shepherd Velox and get some good laps in. 1st time running it my radio glitched and I had a run-a-way straight and over a wall breaking my front bumper and losing one front shock.

But this weekend with the help, tips and advice from Shepherd's Michael Palazzola I was able to really get some run time in and got a feel for the car. Now I am just a sportsman class driver and getting back into 1/8 scale racing after 5 years off I do have to say this .......... this is the best car I have ever owned after running Mugen Mrx3, Mrx4-R and Serpent's and this is a older V8 Velox

I am working on a new 2015 kit or a might hold off to get a 2016 kit but either way Shepherd has me sold !!!

Again thanks Michael Palazzola and Gorge (for fine tuning my motor) and by the way Michael Palazzola was tearing up that track.
