Some pictures from racing on Saturday. This was a gray Ozite track. Only my 2nd time running carpet off-road ever. I qualified 4th in the Bmain 4wd Mod(running 13.5 Blinky) , finished 3rd . Missing the bump spot by 2 seconds. It was a fun day, and every time I put the buggy on the track it had gotten faster. Definitely room to step it up for sure.
My buggy is at minimum weight by the way.

If been quite interested in this buggy, but where do we go to get spares for stuff? Amain has the buggy, but no support parts. Just curious as this will play a part in whether or not I end up giving this 4wd a shot in the future!

Default Front & Rear Arms

Just purchased the S14-3....just would like to know if the front and rear arms are the same as the S104 Evo? Still have the evo with a lot of parts...

Cheers!

What gearing are folks running. Was lucky and got a trade for an older s104 with 12mm hex conversion. So, my sworkz is staying with me a little longer. I was running mod, but now 13.5t blinky is the craze. I was looking at maybe 72x29 for gearing since they have a 72t spur now for the diff. I also have the slipper but do they make a 72 or 75T for the slipper?

Anyone else see similarities?
Saw it up close at the Jcon Carpet Nats, and couldn't help but see some of the same characteristics and designs adapted into the S14-3.

To be honest, more than just a few 4wd buggies look oddly "similar" currently.. when I look at the rear of the rear chassis brace in the above picture it reminds me of an xray xb4. (;

initial impressions for me at least were simularities with the yokomo YZ4SF.

But pretty much all the buggies are going to have something about them that is similar, other than say Tekno which kind of went there own way and Hot Bodies which went with a more forward electronics design but still D413 roots on the D418.

Mes, mate where did you get the silver spring from? Do you happen to have a part #?

Without going into why, can anyone answer if the new tower fits the s104 evo? I know, the new one isn't for pbs.

For those who are still using 14mm hexes I have 24 pairs of nip white wheels. I need to get rid of them . 2.00 a pair plus shipping, or 50.00 shipped lower 48 for the whole bag of rear wheels.
I also have 8 pairs nip of 2wd front white wheels. 2.00 a pair, or 20.00 shipped for them.

I guess the real question I have is will the s14-3 front tower will bolt up to the s104 evo bulkhead or not.. good on the 14mm hex wheels though, Raul.
