I actually took a look at one of these earlier today. I believe Sportswerks is a Horizon Hobby product...about 99% sure

It looks very nice and has some nice parts on it (threaded aluminum shocks) for the price.

There definitely looks like a Losi influence. The Arms look identical but cant confirm that they actually are identical.

I saw it at a store for $169 and that came with everything including a battery pack. The guy showed me the prices for replacement parts (for the truck not the buggy but cant imagine much a price difference) and the parts were really inexpensive.

My thinkin...its perfect for jr high kids and high school kids. Im probably gonna pick one up myself unless i can take a good look at a Losi or TA buggy and be convinced otherwise. I know everyone who races competitively will go with the losi or ta and they should be better than this one but for the price it looks like you get a great value.
