GT, you suggested the sway bars, shock springs, hubs and toe in blocks........I don't see the sway bars on your car. Do they mount differently than the Sigma 1 ?? Thanks
The anti-roll bars are different from Sigma 1. Rather similar to those Tamiya cars. They're a lot smaller than Sigma 1.

If you didn't see in some of the picture's ,the sway bars mount off the front diff cap and off the rear diff cap on the Sigma2 ,unlike the Sigma1 the bar's are mounted on the top plate.
The sway bar kit is a option part for the Sigma2.
GT RACER
The price of the Sigma2 in Singapore were you live you said it cost about $400 U.S at your LHS ,here in the U.S at www.kawadaracing.com the preorder intro price is $369.99 ,not a bad price ,and this also is lower than some shops in Japan and Hong Kong from what i have seen,even with the falling U.S$ to the JP Yen.
thanks

Yep...I completely missed seeing the sway bar mounts in some of the pics. Hey, I'm old ...what can I say !!
I was actually assuming that they would be mounted topside like the Sigma 1. Oh well, you know what they say about assuming.

Your're right. It's a lot cheaper. Well, already bought mine. What can I say...

Oh yes. Did some testing today. The spur gear seems to strip easily (4th spur after 8 packs of batts ) when it had a light hit on something. Don't know why... Still trying to figure what went wrong.... Will have to change to a 48 pitch spur gear if I still can't figure it out cause I'll be using the car in a club race this Sunday.

I have talked to people who have car's with one-way's(belt and shaft car's)and for the most part they like having the one-way in but most of them did change to 48p over 64p spurs due to stripping them out easier .With the oneway in,the drivetrain take's more abuse during a crash or even a"light" hit,because there is no give in the drivetrain like with a front diff installed.You can even bend or brake axle's .This also depends on your driving style as well .
Never heard of the Sigma1 stripping any spurs out ,comes with 48p in the kit.
Also make sure that you mounted the spur on the spur gear adapter evenly.

You're right. I had changed to 48p after stripping 4 spurs in 8 packs of batts. Using the 48p did solve all the stripping problem.
