Yeah there is a fair bit of 414M on there.....
But it is a prototype......remember the 'Pro4' that Hara ran a few months ago, it was a TC3 with a carbon fibre chassis and upper deck!!!

Lets wait and see if it goes into production first, before we talk about price....

wow, that car is very much like something i wanted to make. i like the mid motor idea. so much so, that i'm currently running the rclab 7even. single belt with loooooong camber links. i may have found my next car...that is if it ever makes it to production and doesn't change too much.

Exclamation at last

Finally someone did see the new one ('bout time though)!!
Concerning t price, well it's 44.000 japanese Yen, should be near the 300$ mark. I do like it but, what if there aren't any importers, whattabout parts?? Seems hard enough, perhaps it is as tough as the older sv10 alc2. now that I think of it , does anyone know where the updated chassis can be found (where the batteries are relocated just behind the front wheels)?
Still like the new one

No longer a prototype.....a real production car! I have one sat in the box right now. It's nice that Kawada has returned back to its original roots of building a "nice" car rather than try to please the budget racer too much (which the original SV10II was!!)....very nice indeed!!

From what I've seen so far....very nice. Derlin diff, 2.5mm chassis, 3mm shock towers. Rebuildable CVDs, 6mm front one way. Alloy gearboxes, motor mount and toe in brackets.....

Price?.....I think list is HK$21xx-22xx.......
