Both are great cars
Rev 8 is easier to drive in high grip conditions

I ran a rev 4 a few years ago and will have a few 7's in my possession soon.. was just curious as to how they compare to the 8.. and how the new frontend is to the old school or even the dynamic strut FE..

I like the old school front end, have it on my rev8 loaner car, it's simple and durable
Only difference of new school is more adjustment

Never tried DSfe

Isn't 'dynamic strut' the name for AE's L4 front end?

Anyone know where I can buy a tomale pod to fit my rev 8???? I want a better rear ride height adjustment than the typical inserts that pinch the axle bearings!!!! There is nothing on the tomale site.

Default Pod

I have been waiting for a year now to get some of the pod conversions. He makes a great product, so it will be worth the wait when they are available!

Default For sale

I have a Rev8 Pro for sale and possibly a 2nd one that has the Wallace chassis. Anyone interested? I'm about to take photos and post on the "for sale" thread.
PM me
