We've already discussed that same effect but with respect to power-to-weight which is the more telling number. The F8x is going on a diet, and hence need not have as big a power increase to see an increase in performance. It does not mean it won't get a power increase, just that its premature to assume things - we know almost nothing about the chassis still. Hopefully that changes after M-Fest next month.
