Answered my own questions so the wim site says you can't shoot vertically unless you have an L plate. So does the rrs L plate work on the gimbal?

Yes.  They are both Arca Swiss Style.  (My L Plate is RRS)

However on the full gimbal vertically mounted u can't look through the view finder the way the camera would sit :-/. I only shoot vertically for panos which I don't shoot to often so I guess I shouldnt worry

Yes you can.  You buy an adapter called the "wimberley module 8"  You clamp this into the gimball mount.  Then you clamp your L-Plate into this.  Basically it is an adapter that turns the mounting surface on the gimball 90 degrees allowing you to mount your L-Plate instead of a Lens Foot Plate. 

The orientation of the camera to the gimball are the same whether you shoot with your lens clamped in or your L- Plate. 

I shoot Panos all the time (vertically) with this setup.  The Module 8 also allows you to slide the setup back a little orienting the front of the element over the center of the tripod base.  This helps to prevent Parallax when as you shoot from one edge of the pano to the other.  (RRS makes a longer "Module 8" type thing that works even better at eliminating parallax, its just a little more $$ and called the Nodal Slide http://reallyrightstuff.com/ProductDesc.aspx?code=MPR-CL-II&type=0&eq=MPR-CL-II-002&desc= )

Stupid question, exactly how does the model 8 attach the either the wim camera bracket, or an L bracket?? In the picture it doesn't show anything? However, ok so, I use the L plate on my camera, I then attatch the say rrs nodal slide, which can attach to the gimbal head via arca swiss. Then, the L plate can mount onto the nodal? O.o haha

Not stupid at all.  I'm gonna have supper... then I'll take a pic of my setup so you can see how it clamps on and post it here...

Hope this clarifies it for you:

1) Wimberley WH200
2) Wimberley Module 8
3) Wimberley Module 8 clamped into WH200
4-7) Views of Camera Body Clamped into Module 8. (Garlic Bread from dinner in the BG of the last one.   8) )
