Hi Guys, a couple of quick questions.

Can you tell me what the wheelbase and standard front track is on the Rev 7 sport please?

Thanks in advance.

With a few shims it's spot on the max, 172

The 7 puts the arms a few mm wider than the 6

With the adding shims you are still able to easily reduce width to get it twitchy'r

Saw the frontend and some other things last week at the warm-up race at Horsham. Looks promising for sure. Coming soon......tough to say, but it will be worth the wait.

Somewhere in Lunenburg Massachusetts on february the 28th, the year 2013 around 11:40 pm, the word final was written on the files with remaining touches to be done to the parts. Rapid prototype complete front end is built and it is beautiful. Expecting molded parts sometime shortly after nats.

God I love the look of that lower arm.
