They told me in an email that they would know more the following week. That was 2 weeks ago.

Not to hijack, but I'm interested in strength sacrifice of the R&P gears at 4.88 for the D30. Is this even a concern? I stayed at 4.10 on my HPD30 (even running 35s on a 4.0) mainly because the 8.8 I got had 4.11 already.
