Dave ,have you seen any of the Sigma2 prototype's run yet in Japan? and if so, how did it go?
thank
sac
Have yet to see one run yet.. I think that most of the Original Sigma users were scared away due to the Car being "Very" heavy.. but from the prototype pic`s.. it looks like they have shaved a little beit of the weight issue points off the car... I`m sure they will be showing the car next week at the JMRCA EXPERT Finals... so I might be able to git a shot or to..and possibly ask some q`s

Nice design with the motor in the middle. Good to see another car out on the market. The more the better.
The only thing is, who's gonna import it and how hard will it be to get parts. That's gonna be the concern on the person who wants one.

Evolution Hobbies is already importing all the Kawada goods. They have been for at least a year or so. As noted in a previous post...www.kawadaracing.com.

Default more on Sigma 2

Kawada has released more information about the Sigma2 beside's all the changes listed on the previos post ,some of the other changes are newer diffs that are easier to adjust,redesigned axle's and battery hold down.
All information could still change due to being "preproduction"information,also it look like the price could end up being just a little higher than the current Sigma!

Dave
Please post any information if you can ,about the race this weekend if there are any protype Sigma2 running!
thanks

not to start any rumours or anything, would not be surprised if Tamiya made a joint effort with Kawada to produce the next TRF416 car

just a thought...

Very Nice !! Kawada may not be well known here but they should be. I have an SV-10 Alcyon and the chassis has some very nice features and handled great the first time out. Also very well engineered and easy to work on. Looking forward to getting a Sigma 2 !!
racer, Tamiya has the ability to work out such a deal but I doubt that will be the case. Unlike Tech Racing, Kawada has representation in this country and I think they would choose to build that effort.

Default Kawada and Tamiya

Racer
Kawada has already worked with Tamiya on a car ,Kawada also works with most of the big RC companies in Japan, producing parts for them . So it would not surprise me if Kawada and Tamiya teamed up again on another project.And if you are wondering which car, look at the Kawada ALCYON kit(take a good look at the Alcyon ultimate kit) and the Tamiya 414 series of cars.
Hmmmm!!fact!!
As for the Sigma 2 can't wait for it to get here.
