don't bother going back with stock.. I caught wind somewhere that the Mugen MBX5 shocks fit and so the the RD logics BigBody 3.5mm shocks. but finding shocks to fit it should not be an issue.

As for getting alloy arms.. With alloy you have to remember when you hit something hard.. if the alloy does not bend or break something else will. most likely whatever the arms are attached to.. ie the diff case.

Google will net you some hobby shops in AU that stock parts here is one.

I actually have the Nada Racing branded version of the Swift II. Does anyone happen to know of any places in Australia where I can get parts for this thing?? Especially alloy parts since those front suspension arms (or whatever they are called) along with the shock shaft ends break every time you drive the bugger near something hard :P

I haven't taken apart my diffs yet.. Are they filled with diff fluid or are they just greased?

Hi

Well it came in today, and it is bigger then I thought it was going to be. Four the past four hours I have been tearing this thing down and going over it from top to bottom making sure that every thing is tight and working good.

Hi

When you take the diff's a part be sure to get some 3X18mm flat head screws to replace the stock screws that are in the diff's. Also do you know of any setup stations that will work with this buggy.

Did you run it with the OFNA picco .26? or did you go with another engine?

I'm going to go with an AXIAL .28 ProSpec engine
still not sure on servos yet.

Hi

Yes I did use the OFNA picco .26, and it just screams & I do mean it really screams, just about as loud as a Savage with a stock ribbed pipe. I think I will be replacing the pipe some time in the future with something a little bit quieter. Once the body comes in and I get to paint it I will post some pics.

Hi

Well I T-boned a pipe yesterday and snapped the bumper clean off. Does any one know were I can get a better and stronger bumper for this thing.

I would also rather have a rally body but I cant seem to find one of those.

You can go to your LHS if they don't have it in stock they can order it for you.
but personally I think the bumper did it's job and protected the buggy.. i'm not even sure if they make alloy bumpers for any buggy out there.

Hi

I wouldn’t want an aluminum bumper it would caws to many problems. Basically I am looking for something that is a little bit more flexible and a little bit more bigger.

The SHO bumper looks to be more flexible than the stock Swift & Swift 2 Bumper which seems to be more solidly built. I Don't know if the SHO bumper is bigger, but it does look weaker since it's just a curved plastic plate.

That must have been some impact you had there to break the bumper.

Hi

There was a 5" pipe sticking 2" out of the ground and hidden in the grass. I had the buggy going about 3/4 throttle when I hit that pipe, and then it came to a dead stop. The engine stopped running and the muffler got disconnected and the bumper went flying throw the air with the greatest of easy. I really lucked out, the bumper was the only thing to break. After I reconnected the muffler I want back out and did some more driving.

I have been looking for a good car to base some of my most recent develpoed items on. I was working out a deal with Schumacher in England for a bunch andthen a supply of Swifts. It cant get any better than this. Same car at a lot less then I was going to get it. These will allow me to do my work and then get the supply from Schumacher.

I have the roller on the way. Where could I get a cheap body? I assume it doesn't come with one. I think it will be great for my first buggy!!!

How much did you get it for.. I checked that Suprasales guy the other day and he had them up to $109.99 for B.I.N
If he still had them at $74.99 I would pick up another. ***hint hint Suprasales****

I have not had a chance to research bodies. I came across a hobby store in china while googling, that was selling the prepainted stock bodies as well as their own designs for $18.99US but for some reason I can't find the link no more

Almost any 1/8 scale body will fit. So dont limit your self. You may have to trim it alittle diferent then the lines show and align the mount posts. I have Bergonzi bodies on my Ofnas and Keyosho and have put them on Mugans. I have also put Ofna bodies on eairly Swifts.

True but if cost is a factor then he may not have much choices.. mind you he never did mention a price point.

That is true the Bergonzi bodies cost me about $22 each not much more than those others once you include shipping. I think the Bergonzi body for the Uraguay is the best looking buggy going. I will get some photos up of one.

Default RE: What Buggy is this?

My question is what kind of buggy is it?, a sho or a swift pro, and no one has said exactly what the differences are?. if i purchase the buggy, can i order parts from rd logics to fit my swift?. or vice/versa?. it seems like a sweet deal for the price. and finally, does it come with a body if I purchase as a roller?. thanks guys for your help............
