Have you compared cost of spare parts etc so you could compare TCO between those cars?

+1 on that one.

I will go with Sworkz, when it comes out in 1-2 weeks.

All new components have been bought.

Looking forward to this one !

Anyway I think XB8 will only we greatly improved in 2018 after Tesssman have made quite some new thing to it after running it this year.

S35-3e is coming next and then the S35-3T. The radio tray will not work on the Evo. Totally different.

I have one of these, I have not driven it as of yet but I will tell you the build on it was FAR superior to any other Sworkz. No more hunting for screws in a big bag you already opened. It's not The best still but it's on par with other manufacturers now as far as the build goes. They still give you lots of extra parts. and for the price, you get alum hubs, servo saver arm, carbon upgrades,etc... everywhere. I blinged my out a bit but it's a nice car throughout. Hope to drive it very soon as I love all my other sworkz cars. It just looks too pretty right now.

hey guys, i have the s35-3 along with my s350t and s35-2e. Is anyone else having issues with the steering binding? I figured out the issue and it's when the steering travels to max it kind of hyper extends the steering links. seems the new ackerman angles and plates give it so much steering on the inside tire that the bellcranks have a hard time pulling it back out. On the track it seems ok, but standing still on the starter box it binds every time. I tried moving the position on the arms and the ackerman plate but not luck. Almost feeling like I will try putting the s350 evo LE front arms and ackerman on. Also, the arms look pretty and all but they break much easier. first couple tanks the rear right arm broke whereas the old 350 would have kept going. I have the carbon inserts in them as well but still broke. As a whole the car drove well but I kinda wish I would have just kept my LE and bought the new chassis and radio tray.

Ok guys, after a slightly disappointing first time out, I am happy to say it's running and driving much better. I put a real mild motor in it just to get it setup well. I added 20g weight to the rear and moved the lower rear shock position to the inner hole. Also I did a little steering mod to the new outer ackerman plates so they have a physical "stop" and don't over extend and lock the steering up. It's working great and once I get it setup a bit more I will post a setup sheet for you guys to try. I am happy now.
