Car handles better then most saddle ebuggys ....comes with 2 sets of shocks and 2 chassis for different types of tracks ....jumps extremely well ...and is extremely durable
I have been driving this buggy for 2 seasons now. Not only is it a well balanced and easy to drive buggy, but it is very durable. The quality of the car becomes immediately apparent the second you blip the throttle. This car is so quiet all you hear is the motor wind up. The chassis is well balanced thanks to the twin 2S packs.
Updated review. This buggy is nimble and smooth. tons of steering, especially thru the S turns. After winning my first club race with this buggy (both AA mains), against kyoshos and mugen7s, I went on to take 2nd overall in the regional race at s&b raceway 'that just happened' race, finishing behind a losi team driver (20 total ebuggies including serpents). After having spent some time racing it, the only upgrades I would purchase with this car are the aluminum pin holders and rubber shielded 15x21x4 bearings. The pivot ball steering, split battery configuration, and weight forward design (long 1/8motors will NOT fit) make this buggy THE BEST E BUGGY PERIOD. You also get 2 chassis plates, 2 complete sets of shocks, 3 sets of swaybars and springs, 2 pinions and 3 different spur gears(based on a 1900-2100kv motor), and quite a few extra arms, pin holders and pills for adjusting rear toe. I WILL be purchasing the nitro, 1/10 buggy, and truggy (when released). The best racer on the track is also the cheapest, I know it seems hard to believe, but its true. Durability is on par with every other manufacture, Ive owned associated and agama buggies, associated and losi SC trucks, and Traxxas and Redcat MTs. This is the best kit by FAR, advances in the evolution of buggy racing are on full display with this machine.
I got my S Works US Edition Memorial Day weekend finally put together last week and I love it I was currently driving a Mugen mbx 6 ebuddy this is pretty much compare to it the only difference is the weight distribution cornering is better on this car and it turning out to be better than my Mugen I'm easing my way back to my mugen setup on this car it's getting better and better and I added weight to the back of the car because it meet the rear end slide because of all weight the is end the front. I'm heading to track tomorrow I have some more tricks up my sleeve to make it better. The bottom line is if you own a Mugen 6 or 7 you will like this car.
I bought the kit driven by price , Ok, The build was ok, not sure who packed the screws in the bags but probably half of them weren't in the right bags. Ended missing a couple of 16mm screws , lucky had some from another kit. Was also missing two of the spring adjusting screws (not good). The body is pretty thin, the front nose piece was unuseable because where the screw holds it on it was only the thickness of the masking film, I painted it peeled off the film and there was nothing there but a big hole. The instructions also don't list part numbers against the pictures so you find yourself triple checking hoping it's the right one. The body also doesn't leave a lot of room for electrics and you can only get 68mm long motors to fit in.
On the track, it drives well, jumps well, lands ok, only put about 6 packs through it haven't broken anything , but did strip a plastic spur( yes plastic) have since ordered the metal one.
Would I buy it again , probably not but I'll use it hoping it grows on me.
I can highly recommend the SWORKz S350 BE1 EVO PRO USA Edition. The quality of materials is up there with the other major brands and the included update parts are excellent upgrades from the original.
The only downside is that the manual needs updating as the supplementary instructions for the upgraded parts could be confusing if this is your first time building a kit.
I power mine with a Tekin Gen 2 2050 Combo with a Futaba HV9352 Servo and it is very quick around the track. It handles beautifully with the split battery layout.
Well done SWORKz and Amain.
Excellent car. Nimble and smooth. Crazy deal at anything <$400. I have an RC8.2 FT, 811-Be Serpent, DXR8-e. S350 is a better racer than either of those (doesn't compete with DXR8-e in ultra light though). Pretty tough - no breakages so far. No leaks.
Some neat things about the S350: 3 bearings for each of the massive diff pinions, 2-piece front arm balls (turn buckle wrench accessible), easy to swap spurs, strong/no-bind shock mounts, easy-to-remove lower hinge pins, aggressively serrated wheel nuts, ALL pins are covered (no set screw BS).
Cons: PITA battery wiring for large series connectors (XT90 and 10AWG is a nightmare). Limited ESC orientation because of body clearance.
Got it from amain when it was on sale, I'm kinda disappointed that this kit was marketed as an EVO when compared to the nitro version.
So much more stuff in the nitro kit, shock towers, bladders ect ect that is also a "evo" kit.
Build wasn't difficult, instructions need updating badly however. Lucky I sorted fasteners before building kit which made it easier.
Car drives awesome though it really feels like its got more pull then my MBX6.
I'd recommend it if you get it on sale.
I got this Buggy of its Quality & Name Sake..... The SWORKZ STANDS FOR the Little Brother to Mugen SEKI...... & being I Graduated from RTR to ARTR Car's I decided to JUMP into the BIG LEAUGES & Build MY 1st Buggy From the GROUND UP...... The Box is LOADED with QUALITY TOP of the LINE PARTS from SWORKZ... It took ME about 70 COMBINED HRS of Total BUILD TIME over the course of 4 1/2 weeks to get Buggy in ROLLER CHASSIS FORM... & another week to Install Tires to RIM's & Install Motor & ESC & Radio system & Steering Servo.. All Said TOTAL time before buggy was Ready for it's 1st SHAKE DOWN RUN's on the Track was about 6 weeks in ALL... BUT I will say this BE-1 EVO is an AWESOME BUGGY once assembled... I ALSO TURNED ALOT OF HEADS @ THE TRACK AS WELL... If your Looking for a KIT to BUILD THIS IS THE BUGGY FOR YOU.... FYI... ONCE Built because this Buggy is built on a GENERAL SETUP as PER the MANUAL.. Will Require constant adjustments to get BUGGY Tuned in for YOUR TRACKS CONDITIONDS.... SO YOU MUST ALLOW TIME FOR TUNING in the Setup's....On my 4th Race & FINAL OF THE DAY I was able to make THE B-MAIN in 4th place qualify spot... I Finished 2nd & was gaining on the Leader....... SO this should give you an IDIEA on HOW COMPETIVE THIS BUGGY can be.....
