It's a tuning aid more or less.

Stiffer arm-less flex-more reactive-high traction smooth track

Softer arm-more flex-less reactive-low traction bumpy track

Looks like all of the arms will accept tuning plates.

So you are saying having carbon reinforcement (picture)
Will only be good for high traction track ?

But like most EU tracks are dusty, loose dirt track.
An none carbon insert is prefered ?

I would say it's a tuning option for feel. What I listed is probably considered what to expect through the different ranges of plates. You will most likely be able to run no plates, plastic or carbon. I'm not sure if it's doable but it looks like you could have to choice of an upper and lower plate as well. The options are not necessarily used by the book as we don't know how stiff the arm is bare and how stiff it becomes with plates until we start running them. I'm not saying your style track couldn't be ran with carbon plates but I'd start soft because I like a less reactive car while someone else may like the opposite and make it work.

The idea behind the carbon inserts is as mentioned to increase sensitiivity of the car and also to reduce grip.

If you run without the plates you get maximum flex and increased grip.
Running the plates the car looses grip in high conditions and also makes it more responsive in change of direction.

Needs to be more then that. If there is anything hard, such as a pebble, the half a mm thick UHMW will tear.

Does someone have more pictures about that buggy? What I saw there is full adjustable lower hingepins like DNX8 and Tekno vehicles.

I wonder if Amain is even going to bring this car into the states. They already have the S35-2E on Clearance.

Anyone else find it strange that SWorkz sent out teaser pics 2 months ago and now that the kits will be in stock by the end of the week, dead silence... searched and found a number of pictures on Facebook, team drivers appear to already have their cars in hand and built in the last week or two.

Also found a copy of the manual at http://answer-rc.com/en/6520-sworkz-...buggy-kit.html...pile of new parts, all the major components anyways. Changes to the driveline are, well, interesting.
