rev 8 Initial settings from shakedown at TQRC

This car is very smooth at speed, sharp in the tight infield turns
Our current layout is technical

Compared to my yr old OP12C inline car, the rev8 is right on the mark, equaling fast lap, and average lap consistency with 13.5
Smashed track record in 17.5, but to be honest, I don't run that class often, just practicing for iic

We have a very competitive expert field at TQ, gaining .1s is hard to do

Looking forward to more track time, and a few more things to try
Not bad at all for it's first outing

Nice job DB. Here's mine, likely one of my quickest builds. Was bored waiting for carbon so laid out every needed piece of hardware before it arrived.

Hey berger Mount an AMR on your 8 and thank me later.

I hear soon from an inside reliable source. And that's what it says on the news section of speedmerchants site.

i got a chance to run the REV8 this past weekend at the highly contested Southern Nationals (Nashville Thunder RC) thanks to Joel V and Bruce, What a great balance this car has. from the moment i hit the track i have never in 20 years of racing, been able to focus on which compound to run only, because the car felt that good ! i recieved the car the same day of practice thanks to Speedmerchant, put in the electronics and couldn't believe how smooth the car felt from lap 1.I was able to feel the compounds of choice and their pro's and con's and dial in a great feel. Great props to Bruce and the whole Team. Not only is this a great looking layout on the car,everything has a purpose towards the balance, on this one , they hit it right on the nail..hands down ....the best 1/12th i have ever drivin!Couldn't be happier with the results, thanks again Joel and Bruce.

Me Rossi, you were flying this past weekend! Do you use the "old skool" front end?

Are the body mounts in the same position as the Rev. 7?
