Here is the final setup sheet I'll post before iic

Finally did a back to back test Inline vs: Transverse with 13.5 power
Both rev8's are awesome (thank you Joel/Bruce for setup assist)
Maybe a tiny bit easier to drive inline, maybe a tiny bit more aggressive in Transverse, but to be honest, it's splitting hairs
In a blind taste test, would be hard pressed to tell the difference

Gazza
The SpeedMerchant Straight servo mounts
Cut a little off the bottom to lower servo

Got to run the new Rev 8 this past weekend. Wow it really carries on where the Rev 7 left off.. Ton of corner speed and more rear traction.

Can't wait to get more time on the chassis, it's only going to get better.

Never had a pod so close to perfection before
Shim is almost overkill

Where do you get the shims? or what do you make them from?

Is losing the rear cross-brace a speed secret?

You sand the spacers down to .4 mm? The ones I saw were 1.5 mm...

It would be great if someone actually made these...in appropriate widths.
