Chassis Focus – Oliver Mack

Sat-MackVelox-1

Chassis – Shepherd Velox V8 EC
Engine – Sonic 21X
Fuel – Maxima
Tires (handout) – Matrix Tyres
Radio/Servos – Futaba
Remarks – Having not driven since the World Championships in Japan Oliver Mack was surprised with his pace in controlled practice and really happy with his Edo prepared Sonic engine. Unlike some other drivers the German said his car actually handled better with the controlled batch of tires compared to those he used in free practice. Still running the EC version of the Velox V8, Shepherd have a new car coming in the next 2 weeks but due to some critical parts missing he wasn’t able to run it, he chose to use the rear lower wishbones with their pivot ball ARB link and bumper from the new car. In terms of setup its stiff all the way around especially on the front saying if he goes softer for more steering he will end up losing the rear end.
