Chassis Focus – Melvin Diekmann

Chassis – Velox V10 Black Edition
Engine – Gimar Eagle.12
Fuel – Energy
Tires (handout) – Matrix
Radio/Servo – Futaba/Futaba
Body – Protoform P47

Remarks – Working with the rest of the large Shepherd team here in Rucphen, Diekmann said that it has been difficult to find a setup with the weather meaning the track felt different every run.  Reverting to a standard setup, he has since found more speed by going lighter on the front shock oil to allow his Velox V10 to handle the kerbs better.  He has also switched to 2 million oil in the front differential to get the turn-in he needs on this high speed circuit.
