It has been discovered that the scale factor for isometric drawings is incorrect in Revit 8.1. I think it's also wrong in version 8. To correct the problem, you should set a custom scale for the view. The scale factor should be the intended scale factor divided by 1.225. You'll have to round off as the dialog only accepts whole numbers (integers). As an example, if you intend to have an isometric at a scale of 1/4" = 1'-0" (1:4Shadey you would create a custom scale of 1:39 (48/1.225 = 39.18 (~39)). 1/8" would be 1Blushing8. Happy scaling.

I have found this to be true in Revit 2011 too.  The problem is in one direction (x-axis) needs to be scaled by a factor of 1.225 but in the other direction (y-axis) it needs a separate scale of 1.469.  I could be wrong about my calculations but I do know that my isometric views are not to scale.
