Really good 17.5/13.5 setup, a little bit edgy on the start, but finishes strong at the end

Gotta say Bruce @ Speedmerchant is the man! Fired him an email Sunday morning about a broken chassis, and he got back to me assuring that I'll have a new one by Friday for a trophy race at Horsham. These guys have a great car, and better cust. service to boot!

Between Bruce and Joel, it is hard to find a company that supports its customers and drivers as well as SpeedMerchant.

Just received my Rev8 on Saturday morning from Joel and raced it at my local track just north of Baltimore, MD and this car is truly amazing! The local fast guys in 17.5 1/12 are Mike Herald Jr, who just TQed 17.5 1/12 at IIC, and his dad, Sr. Since Joel and I spent the entire morning finishing the build I missed practice and round 1, but when we finally got the car on the track it was nearly perfect. In round 2 I was on pace to reset TQ until I blew out, but round 3 the car was even faster with a few minor adjustments, and secured TQ by 2 seconds over Sr. For the main we made a few more small adjustments and somehow improved on it again! I was able to pull away and win by almost a lap!

Words cannot explain how pleased and excited I am about this car!

Such excite, very handle, much win.

I must agree, for Robbie to get this excited about something that isn't Xray brand or Tony Stewart it really says something.

I ran my Rev 8 at the UK nationals this weekend.
Unfortunately I had a problem with the chassis plate on only the 3rd run, as the parts are still in transit it was back to the Rev 7 for the rest of the weekend :-(

R Dodge, can you please share your setup?
