Hi racermac,

Please email [email protected]

Not sure where waiting on cars/parts comes from. The rev 8 has been under development for the past race season at all the major US races as well as over in Japan with Kazuki. It has not been released yet and you are only seeing the first kits that went out to team guys surfacing here. All indication is that this will be the final production version.

As for the front end, we are pushing hard to have it ready for sale by or at Vegas.

I've run tires down to the rim front and rear
Tested 40mm rear at iic, but that's even too small for the extreme grip we had there

40.5mm provided the min rear side grip necessary, and that is a 1 run setup

It depends whether or not you have a Rev7-to-8 conversion/Rev7 pod plates or the new Rev8 rear pod plates... with the 7 pod plates/conversion, you can hit 3.2mm in the rear with a 3.75 ride height pill and ~41.0mm rear tires.

From what I understand, the Rev8 plates will allow for smaller rear tires.
