Well it's at the top of my list (desperately need to replace the old FSR bullet) but I'm short of money until I sell my house so I think i'll be waiting for a few months

sac... you're correct. This was Macky's car which he sold to Dynamic_E which I bought last year (at least that's what I know about its history). The car was never run so it's practically brand new when I got it... I hate to have it just sitting after all this time so I ran it last weekend... but of course making sure that the bottom is tight and fully protected... I doubt if I will ever race with it... but who knows... there's no point of buying a Ferrari, Porsche or what other exotic car you have if you won't enjoy running it...

How good they are depends on who you ask

On the few occasions I raced mine last year I was very competative (in Stock class). The car handles very well but is let down by lack of adjustments. It doesn't have droop screws and you only have one shock position on the front and two on the back

It's also somewhat fragile (mine isn't running due to a broken bumper), and as it's pretty old it's getting very hard to get parts (hence me needing a new car ).

I will post some pics tomorrow. If you haven't seen one prepared to be shocked! Three belts

Not much lately.

A few guys are keen but reluctant to buy due to the steep price.

I hope Kawada will get a good factory driver to run it on world races to improve the popularity of the car.

Here's my setup for my Sigma 2 on Asphalt track.

Front

Front Shock = Center hole
Spring = Kawada short spring black 302gm
Shock oil = 30wt
Piston hole = 2 holes / 1mm
Droop = 1mm from ride height
Ride Height = 5mm
Anti-roll = Gold Color (2nd softest) Anti-roll bar
Camber = 1.5
Toe-in/out = 0

Rear

Rear Shock position = Center Hole
Spring = Kawada short spring black 302gm
Shock oil = 30wt
Piston hole = 2 holes / 2mm
Droop = 1mm from ride height
Ride Height = 5mm
Motor Mount position = Back
Anti-roll = Silver (Softest) Anti-roll bar
Camber = 1.5
Toe-in = 2.5

Gearing = 8.4
Pinion = 19 (48p)
Spur = 92 (48p)
Motor = D6 8 X 2
Track = Medium size Asphalt / Technical In-field with Fast Long Straight
Tire = Sorex 40R
Insert = Sorex Type C Medium
Body = Blitz Titan Mazda 6

Hope this help. Will be trying out some other setup to see what's the effect on the car.

Default Sigma2 setup

GT RACER
You may want to go to www.kawadaracing.com(U.S site) and email them your set-up ,you may want to also include the following info
*motor type
*gearing spur/pinion
*tires and insets
*body style
*type of track road course or oval ,small or large etc.
there is a blank setup sheet in the back of the instructions that you can use.

They will add it to there set-up section on the website,anybody else who has a setup for ANY Kawada car should send it to them also!keep posting as you find out more about the car.
thanks
