Sworkz have been in contact telling us that the company will be offering it’s support to all Sworkz drivers at the Euro-B this weekend in Sacile, Italy via Austrian driver Gerhard Steinbock – bringing lots of spare parts, which we’re told will be free for the 12-15 drivers SWORKz are expecting to take part, hailing from Austria, Germany, Poland and France.
SWORKz is proud to announce the release of their new chassis system for the S350 BK1 series, called F.C.S.S (Flat Chassis System Set). With the F.C.S.S, the S350 buggy features improved stability, increased accuracy and precise response from the rear suspension, the S350 is also easier to drive on bumpy and high speed tracks.
SWORKz team driver Carlos Duraes finished second in the Portuguese 2013 International Model Cup Race with his SWORKz optional BK1 F.C.S.S (Flat Chassis System Set) and the new Pro Shocks 2.0. After putting away several very fast laps Carlos finished just ten seconds behind winner Savoya with fellow SWORKz team mate Dani Bernabe finishing in 5th. The setup used by Carlos can be found below.
SWORKz Europe have signed up the talented Carlos Duraes of Portugal, formerly a driver for XRAY, speaking about the deal Carlos said, “I’m very glad to take this opportunity to join SWORKz Team. I tested some others buggies, but I decided to S350 BK1, because the performances and the reliable. This project is really very interesting and it’s my pleasure can take part of its development.”
SWORKz have been quite the busy bees recently, not only making two promotional videos for the company which are running on repeat a their booth at the Nuremberg Toy Fair (see above and below or see YouTube), but also announcing that they have setup website specifically dedicated to the European market: www.sworkz-europe.com
Scott Yang of SWORKz announced that Stefan Scheuenpflug of PSM will be heading up the German distribution for SWORKz and also responsible for much of the European side of things.
Ten days ago we showed you the first CAD images of SWORKz’ S104 EK1 1/10th scale Offroad 4WD buggy, SWORKz themselves sent us the first shots of their new car from the toy fair in Nuremberg, Germany.
“The SWORKz S104 EK1 Pro 4WD buggy with its narrow chassis design comes standard with the SWORKz X-system transmission that provides excellent car acceleration. Equipped with Big Bore Shocks and oil filled gear differentials, the S104 EK1 delivers good traction and balance on any off road track. We are following the pivot ball steering system as our 1/8s to give the driver a good feel of the S104 buggy.”
After two years spent focusing on their 1/8th Buggy products, SWORKz have turned their attention to a quieter more refined class, namely 1/10th Offroad, they’ve kindly released some CAD photos of the new ‘EK1′ Pro Kit with plans to release a Sport/RTR version later on with the ‘EX1′ name. Whilst the 4WD buggy is a true 1/10th racer straight out SWORKz say they’ve used many of the tricks and design tips learned from their 1/8 electric buggy in the development of the 4WD S104 EK1, firmly believing that the car will be very strong yet very light and nimble to drive.
The narrow chassis design comes standard with SWORKz own ‘X-System’ transmission which they say provides a ‘powerful punch’ on acceleration, fully equipped all round with big bore shocks and oil filled gear diffs the S104 is designed for maximum traction on a variety of surfaces and also features a Pivot Ball style steering setup. Expect more details after the Nuremberg toy fair at the start of February.
