Remarks – Melvin is running a host of new test parts on his Shepherd this weekend in preparations for the up coming European Championships.  The car features a prototype battery mount which positions the battery to the left side of the car to allow the use of adjustable brass weights.  He is also running new front bulk heads which unlike their predecessor are now full closed, the focus be on reducing flex.  A new front carbon insert in the front of the chassis is also being tested for flex as is a brace plate mounted at the front of the radio plate.
