You need to shim the gears differently than the kit.
I found adding a 0.3mm shim behind the small input gear, with a 0.2mm shim on the diff gear side and a 0.1mm shim on the opposite side.
Dramatically quietens the car, and makes the drivetrain much more free.

Besercoe ,


I managed to run the buggy more quietly with your re-shim of drivetrain.


Mine is using slipper clutch


Thank you very much for giving me the guidance.


Really appreciated it

They launch a new S14-4 car and the website has been broken since launch, what a joke.

There has been a server issue since they went on Chinese New Year Holidays (Essentially their Christmas)
Has been lots of info on Facebook, and distributor sites.

I have already received, built and ran the car on outdoor dirt.
Happy to answer any questions you may have.

Yes, the Australian kits come with a free centre gear diff, in addition to the kit slipper.

Check out the facebook group "Sworkz Racers Forum" for a video of its first club day.
