Great thread guys!
In a mid life crisis I've started my RV8 build. Lucky enough to have time, so empennage finished in 5 weeks.. fuselage kit will be here in 4 weeks time. I'm currently operating a 180hp Husky from a 570' strip with a wall at each end, so probably won't be taking the RV there (but I'll no doubt give it a go later!). Dropping from 26" wheels to standard Vans wheels was too much of a culture shock, so Ive ordered Grove one-piece gear, 6 inch wheels and plan on putting 600x6 tyres on, with James wheel pants for the RV10. My Husky guru, Tom Dietrich uses the same pants with 700 x 6 wheels on his Allison powered (450shp) hot rod, Pocket Rocket... take a look on youtube, they look great!. I'll let you know how I get on with them in a short while...
