Are there any other changes?
Wheelbase, track width, distance from pivot point to back axle?

Its funny a year ago I was talking about how I thought the 1/12th cars were too forward weight biased with inline batts. They can work if the grip is crazy high but under every other condition transverse with the batt a little back is better. Transverse with the batt slammed forward is almost the same weight dist. as inline on most cars. My 12R5.2 has had a transverse batt with R5 shock mounts for months.

Cool to see these thoughts validated by the 1/12th design guru...Mr. Carbone!

I have a freaky fast inline car for comparison
TQRC is very high grip on foams

One way or another I'm sure the Rev8 will be sweet
If its anything like the WGT3
It's my also my first SM 12th

Hmm, let's see, people are posting that the have cars built, and Berger is no joker, so you decide. Probably changed the number and forgot to update it on the website. Like you are, I'm waiting for when the new car and front end are going to be available. My guess now is sometime before or just after Vegas.

All i see is customers waiting on parts and a disconected number.... your poor disposition towards someone thats interested in buying three cars from him has helped me to decide indeed

Ha! I am waiting on the car myself, so take that for what it's worth. Bruce is a good guy, just give it some time. The wait will be worth it
