This is a really neat car. Been looking at it pretty close ever since I saw it. I might try one out when the funds are available. Is a one way going to available for this chassis?

It was in fact the Alcyon SV10 SP chassis that actually had two vertical plates running the entire length of the chassis in addition to the bottom horizontal plate.

I know it's late and irrelevant, but to re-establish the truth and perhaps bring back to attention this highly underrated car you can still buy from Kawada (perhaps via RC Champ). For about 200$ I think it's a steal.

Anything new on this one folks?? Keeping an eye on it. Looks simple but more than enough to do the job. Any chance the street cost might be less??

hey guys ran the car yesterday , was very impressive, change of direction is sick! very quiet, and smooth, still working out the shock and oil combo but for now car looks good. ran it with 13.5 then tried it with 17.5 for the stock guys( there going to love this car} good corner speed! ran it with the upper deck as im on foam tires so wanted it stiff. will be tryn some different top plate configurations and springs today. car was ok out of the box, but after some droop adjustments the car woke up!!! should be a very good ride.
well back to the track , ill try to post some pics later! let me know if any questions?
