That is strange hearing everybody with a softer front end than rear. After I put the narrow chassis on my SV-10 it handled terrible. I then put some HPI purples on the front and the car was better than ever. I'd also agree that the car has one of the smoothest drivetrains out. It's unfortunate Kawada doesn't have an American importer. I would buy the SV-10 2 in a heartbeat.

I ran the SV10 for a long time. Started running out of parts. Love the car. Now I run a Xray and the fast setup for it seems to also be a softer spring in the front. Still have a place in my heart for the Kawada.....

I think if you have the right tires you NEED to run the car softer up front in order for it to turn hard on power. If you have a big flowing track this may not be as important. I have all three chassis and like the hard chassis over the narrow. The narrow still flexes a little to much side to side for my taste. Parts are not an issue for me at the moment, a local shop still has quite a bit of spares and I have a pretty big stash myself. I would like to get that adjustable toe in rear and the center chassis stiffner. KAWADA FOREVER!!!

Yes it was FUN! I'm running Xrays at the moment so my SV10 is in semi-retirement!

Ottoman: Sounds good to me, let me know and I will send out the money. Do you have a paypal account? That's a little easier to deal with, but if not that's cool.tire:

CIVIC91: so you gonna run the Kawada on the carpet or what? Since they haven't got the carpet in yet, I don't have anything better to do than bug you about which car you'll run!

No, I think I'm gonna sell it and my Xpress. It will be hard, but I need to focus on the Kawada.

CIVIC91: Whaaaaaaaaaaaat, that is a shocker! The Axis and the Xpress! Wow, you ARE trying to concentrate on the Kawada.

Heck if I was broke right now, I'd take the Axis.

Anyway, I guess I should be trying to focus on the C4.1, I think I'm about the only guy that hasn't had some kind of carpet experience before. So I'm going to be playing catch up to guys like you and HPI-1.

There isn't really much to carpet other than dropping the ride height and adjusting camber a little. i usually use a little less camber on carpet than I do on asphault. Tires are important, but you seem to know what tires work for your car, so you really should be set seeing how stiff the chassis is on that Corally! If you want the Schuie you can go ahead and have it and pay me whenever you get a chance (I know who you are and where you hang out It's just sitting on my bench anyway.
