Default SWorkZ S350 BK1 X-System and Balance Weights

I searched some optional parts for Sworkz BK1 and I found the X-System and those Balance weights, they´re expensive, but do they work? Do you recommend me to buy them?

Thanks!

I currently run the SWorkz but have no experience with the X-system. I use coins and (proper) tyre balancing weights to balance the car's weight if needed. Might be better to ask your question here though.

I'm a new Sworkz owner myself, but bought from a guy that has a lot of experience with the chassis. I think neither is critical for performance or function. X-drive basically eliminates additional pins in the linkage (main line into diffs), and also adds an additional bearing for less play and longer wear.

Tak4 is right, the BK1 thread has feedback from folks running it.

The weights are a quick add if you want a better balanced chassis as-is. you can also consider moving the battery box forward. again, feedback from folks is the performance changes are minimal.

The new radio tray will eliminate the need for added weight..

As previously stated the xdrive does eliminate a potential failure.. I have ran the 'x' hard over the last few months and have had top reliability!!!
