*T. rex* is not a carnosaur (full classification: http://dinosauricon.com);
AFAIK ( = as far as I know) it is getting bigger again and holds at 13,5 m

is temporarily offlist.)
Good candidates for the biggest theropods: *Giganotosaurus*,
*Carcharodontosaurus*, an unnamed relative of these two from Argentina,
*Spinosaurus*... have I missed one?
