Arrow The winner!

I'm not sure if he comes here or to R/C Universe, but I have asked him to post here also, to let you know his feelings on the kit. I have also contacted two of the first purchasers and asked them to sign up and give you their impressions. One is from CT and the other is from NH. Just give them a little time to get on line.
I , personally will be building one of the kits and will post pictures of the build and my impressions of the kit as it goes together. As of the first of the week I will have Sigmas, Alcyon ll, and Tripmates in stock with lots of parts. If anyone needs parts to repair Kawadas that are sitting on the shelf either call or e-mail me. AND ONCE AGAIN, THANKS TO ALL THAT ENTERED AND MADE THIS A FUN THING FOR US TO DO!!!!! HOPE EVERYONE HAD A HAPPY FOURTH.

As the owner of a Sigma I can say the build quality is top notch. I have yet to run mine yet but it is built and awaiting electronics. One thing about the car is the instructions are not the best but I'm used to that since I own a few exotic cars from Japan. The aluminum bulkheads and motor mount are a work of art. They have any excess material relieved in them to make them lighter. Even with that the car still feels on the heavy side. Another thing is the amount of screws on the car. I own or have owned almost every touring car you could name and this has to have the most screws of any car out there. I should know because I replaced every single screw except the diff screw with titanium screws. Now that my home re-modeling is done I will mount upi some electronics and give a full test report. If it's as half as good as the Kawada SV-10 Pro I had I will be happy. Here are a couple pictures I posted earlier during the build.
