SWorkz S350 BE1 EVO Pro 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit w/2.0 Pro Shocks & FCSS Chassis (USA Edition)
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 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.

SWorkz S350 BE1 EVO Pro 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit w/2.0 Pro Shocks & FCSS Chassis (USA Edition)
This thing is killer. So easy to drive and super smooth as well. Running with a HW150a esc and Viper 1900kv motor, seems to be a great combo for this car. Be aware that there are some 1/8 motors that are too big for this car, make sure you check specs to confirm the size that you need. Like I said the Viper 1/8 scale motors fit. Take your time on the build as they included the new evo upgrades but left all of the original kit in there too. The good thing is you have some extra parts, the bad thing is that the build gets a little confusing half way through. Over all great car and you cant beat the price. Also I found some cool custom graphics on ebay that fit this body perfectly. Just search out Sworkz S350 BE1.

SWorkz S350 BE1 EVO Pro 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit w/2.0 Pro Shocks & FCSS Chassis (USA Edition)
i have yet to wright a review for any car and my first rc car was an kyosho icarus that should tell you how long ive been in to this hobby.The build was not the easiest.screws are mixed up tie rod links have the wrong measurements once you install the upgrade kit but what a car.I can forgive all of that once put together this car is very easy to work on very tunable very fast.IT was a little bit of a learning curve to drive because of all the steering and I have a losi 3.0 truggy with an os speed motor which I thought had a lot of steering until i drove this thing.Did I say this was fast we have our own bad ass track and I have killed the lap times of my truggy.Great price unbelievable upgrades already included I have run 10 packs through this car and just ordered another car I am so happy with this car I am canibalizing my team a sc10 4x4 for the tekin rx8 and lrp motor to put in to my new buggy to heck with that hard to work on,constantly tuning on pos go sworks and thanks for offering such a great car at such a great price thumbs up all the way from colorado

SWorkz S350 BE1 EVO Pro 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit w/2.0 Pro Shocks & FCSS Chassis (USA Edition)
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.

SWorkz S350 BE1 EVO Pro 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit w/2.0 Pro Shocks & FCSS Chassis (USA Edition)
This is my first 1/8 buggy build and I have been racing since the late 80ís. First off the parts quality is top notch. I was very impressed with the quality and fit and finish of this kit. The X drive system is really cool. Like others have stated with parts for both the US and the European version, the build process is a little frustrating and confusing. Itís best to sort out all of the parts first and keep the US parts separate. Also sort out and measure all of the screws because after about the 3rd page in the manual you are on your own. Once the kit is together, itís very impressive. Parts move freely, everything feels solid. The diffs and shocks are silky smooth. And all of the adjustments seem to be well thought out and easy to make. It includes 3 front and 3 rear sway bars, 2 full sets of shocks, 2 extra front lower arms, 3 spur gears, 2 pinions, and two chassis. The EU chassis alone is $85 hear on A-Main. Another great thing about this car is its compatible with the 350 nitro chassis. So all of the EVO II goodies fit. I have mine setup with the EVO II short towers, BBS shocks and EVO II lower arms. I am also running the car with a Toro TS150 esc, Toro 2150kv motor, Savox servo and shorty packs spaced all the way forward. The first time I drove the car it was on a tight 1/10th scale indoor track with 6í wide lanes. Hard packed dry slick surface. I ran a 6 week points series on this track and took 2nd in mod 4wd with my 22-4 out of about 20 guys. So I know my way around the track with a fast car. All I did was throw the car down and adjust the trim and after about 2-3 laps I started to push it. It accelerated harder than anything I have ever seen, and on that small track it was a bit scary to be honest. But it was never crazy or out of control. It just stuck to the groove like it was on rails. It was super-fast in the high-speed sweeper, rotated perfectly in the 180ís and was quick and nimble in the rhythm section. If I had put a transponder in it I know it would have been faster than my 22-4. The fastest lap I have ever done on that track was an 18.8. I pulled it off the track with a huge grin on my face.

A very hard chassis with a lot of optional pieces, 100% recommended. Just should be careful to ensambled the pieces hasn't the correct order.

SWorkz S350 BE1 EVO Pro 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit w/2.0 Pro Shocks & FCSS Chassis (USA Edition)
I bought the sworkz s350 be1 kit because it was on sale, and I wanted something different. It is a really good kit, build is nice. I have built other brand kits like Tekno and Team Durango. This kit is by far the most difficult to build, because the instructions are all over the place. You are searching a lot for screws and plastic parts. The instructions are my main complaint with this kit. The quality of the parts are on par with the other high end brands, a little slop in the hubs where the wheel bearings sit. I really like the x-system diffs, they look strong and should stand up to the abuse. Three bearings holding the pinion should provide no movement. I also like the fact you can change spur gears without taking apart the center diff. Shocks go together easy and are really smooth. Overall a great kit especially for the price. Have yet to drive it because of rain, but I will review it when I get the chance.

Amazing Buggy....This buggy was a great Deal and an outstanding quality buggy.. First off all the extras that come with this kit are impressive and you are not expecting to open the box and find a pile of extra parts. Second...The Build is smooth, yes some screws are in different bags but they are all there. Third...The upgrades that come with it are things you put on at day 1 and never look back. Sworkz has made an amazing buggy that will compete on all levels.

SWorkz S350 BE1 EVO Pro 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit w/2.0 Pro Shocks & FCSS Chassis (USA Edition)
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.

SWorkz S350 BE1 EVO Pro 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit w/2.0 Pro Shocks & FCSS Chassis (USA Edition)
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.

SWorkz S350 BE1 EVO Pro 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit w/2.0 Pro Shocks & FCSS Chassis (USA Edition)
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.

SWorkz S350 BE1 EVO Pro 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit w/2.0 Pro Shocks & FCSS Chassis (USA Edition)
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.

SWorkz S350 BE1 EVO Pro 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit w/2.0 Pro Shocks & FCSS Chassis (USA Edition)
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.....
