I wouldnt mind they making a molded wing option that is light weight as possible but still durable. know plenty of folks who convert to the sworkz nylon wing for durability sake.

I picked up a new 14-3 the other month and I'm impressed with the quality of the build. My Question is what are the common parts I want to have extra?

Got a few race days in at one of my local outdoor dirt tracks with my 14-3. So far I've been very impressed with the handling and adjustability of the car. The sound of it running is different than the other 4wds out there(using a slipper). So far very happy with the buggy

How many are running the B64 shell on the S14-3? Mulling picking up a S14-3 Limited, but also looking at Schumacher option

That is what I am hearing. I did just get a new 14-3 dirt. The car is really nice kit. Impressive quality. Looking forward to running it this winter for sure.

I picked one of these up 2nd hand (dirt version), and want to run it in Stock (13.5t). Is this the correct spur gear for the centre diff? - Sworkz Center Gear Diff Spur Gear #SW-2503134-01 [S104 EVO]

Anyone tried the +7mm chassis that appeared on the options parts list, but didn't seem to get any announcement?

Do wonder if a new car coming as the S14-3 is pretty damn old now. Hopefully Sworkz will address their utterly crap documentation / manuals / parts list

I hear that now the 8th worlds has completed (with SWorkz the most used brand) the company will be refocusing on the 10th scale program.
A revised model of the S14 is first cab off the rank, in the next month or two.

I have recently started tinkering with both the S14-3 Dirt and the S12-2 Dirt.
Results so far have been surprisingly good.
Currently on a bit of a weight loss program, with 1700 out of the box with a low profile pack. Biggest win so far is it look like ARC Touring Car plastic diff internals will fit, and yield a 29 gram savings. That alone should have a significant impact in the 13.5 class.

The car is already quite stiff, i removed the carbon centre braces and has been very nice so far on large low grip outdoor tracks.
Next plan to cut out the arms per the instructions for a bit more flex, and as a bonus will gain an expected 5 grams in weight savings.
Once i add some titanium i anticipate to be in the 1620 range.

hi all,



Noticed this buggy rear ride height is very high...


also, when run the buggy on a bench, tires not rotating on the ground, the universal shaft will tend to crank, rub against the arm


anyway the remedy this ?
