Hahaha👍 it's funny the stigma the 8 has amongst a lot of pilots. I know of some high time drivers who instruct yet still wont take on an 8 solo....I love it, feels like we 8 drivers are NASA Rocketeers👍

I can't take it anymore.

I'll sell the Pitts S1S and auction off my 29year old RV4 and get a real man's plane. Anyone know of a muscle bound -8 ??

Cheers Hans

Doesn't your Pitts have spring gear? If so, I agree you need an RV-8 to finally have a real man's airplane.

Sometimes in life ya just gotta man up!:

What I'd love to have is an RV4 as a single seat but the same cockpit space/width as an 8
Love the 4 style but too cramped and limited for my liking. -
Come on Vans some of us out there are real men, we want a fresh challenging design for a change!👍👍
