New Rev 8 tweak brace and top motor pod plate. It moves the battery back and makes the car super easy to drive.

Hi Guys,
can you tell me if you will be producing the reactive front end as a kit (for the Rev 8 Pro), or do I have to order the parts from Shapeways. I do not see the parts in the store (other than the hardware.)

Haven't heard of any news on his site, still waiting on the new cross brace to be available. Hopefully all is well with Bruce

Lots of small tweaks tested through the end of last season and this summer. I am not sure which ones will make the cut. The car is wicked fast!

Looking good. Is the front end now Xenon upper arms? 8.5 sounds like it’s going to be a nice car!

In the news link an inline only version is mentioned... I like the sound of that.

The inline version has been stellar for the past two seasons. a the last few refinements have really allowed it to excel.
