Default Shepherd Velox V8 "EC" 1/8th Car

Haven't seen an updated thread for the 2014 Shepherd Velox V8 "European Championship" car, so I am starting one.

Massive change over the previous kit.

Current European Championship winning car.

Current ENS Championship winning car.

And now 2015 European Champion

If you have the 2014 version of the EC upgrade the pivot balls to steel the aluminium ones don't last. Other than that the car is perfect!

I have had to add alot of weight everywhere on mine, its very light out of the box. Besides the alu axles I installed, and the lipo battery, everything else is standard.

I have added the brass battery tray (41g), the middle chassis weight (30g), and also the brass block infront of the engine (15g)

Your best bet may be to contact Patrick at Shepherd directly. Given O. Mack just won the Euros, there may be a few newer parts available.

Hi There,

You only need 3 items to make your car a 2015:

603302
700105
700706

Most of the team drivers are now also using the new low friction pulley sets.

Good luck!
Michael.
