What is the preference for battery placement on these? I just got a Rev 8 Pro and intend to set it up as a 17.5T car (but may do some 13.5T as well). My gut says run it transverse but having never driven one of these I don't want to guess.

I like transverse but it's all a matter of preference.

Transverse is good for low to med grip club racing

At big events with high grip, inline is the most often used rev setup

That seems to be the general rule amongst all 12th scale cars that can run either config. I wasn't sure if these had some geometry that favored 1 way or another on a broader scale.

True
Even in mod, Cyrul ran inline

I ran the 1st part of last season including the birds transverse. Then swapped to inline through carpet Nats, Swapped a few times back and forth through the season. And to be brutally honest. No matter the grip from light club racing to hard core national event the largest acual gain or loss was how easy it was to put the battery in and out of the car and have it stay in location. I perfer the inline config as it allows you to easily remove and install the battery in exactly the same spot.

Anyone have a copy of the Petit RC Rev8 editable setup sheet? The site is down currently and I am getting things sorted out for tonight.

EDIT - I got it. The site is back up.

Anyone know rough equivalent numbers for the 3 Tube Spooges? I assume light is ~5000, medium is ~10000 and hard is ~20000. Is this accurate?

Just a quick update for those that have shown interest in the pod plates I was making. Due to problems with the carbon supplier making the tubes of satisfactory tolerances for the size I needed, I have re-designed the bearing carriers to accept a common, production tube. This gave me the opportunity to work on the plates as well, making them lighter and a little more eye pleasing. Hoping to have everything done by mid October. Here's a teaser pic of the assembly

I am very interested in these pods for 2 cars. I'm assuming they work for the GT car as well.

To be honest, I didn't even consider the WGT car when I designed these plates. I imagine they would work as well, but would require a lot of shims under the bearing carrier to achieve ride height.
