Recently purchased and built a MP9e TKI. My 1st eBuggy. Does anyone use the droop screws on the arms? I do not see anything noted on setup sheets for the adjustment.

Yes use the droop screws, on the set up sheets the section called "rebound" is for droop.

your first buggy

first car? Lamborghini Gallardo

many drivers say the mp9e is less durable than a mugen or xray, do you guys agree?

I'd like to have some feedback from drivers who owned both if possible

I owned both and the mugen and mp9 are equally durable in my opinion. The front arms are both kind of fragile but it still takes a hard hit to break them. Ive broken probably 3 mugen arms in a year and ive broken one mp9 arm in 3 months because I lawn darted into a jump. Other than that havent broken anything else on either. If you wreck a lot youll break something on any car. Also wear is about the same on mugen vs mp9 too. After 3 months my mp9 is still like I just built it and after a year on my mugen there is no slop in anything. I did have to replace the rear out drives and center drive shafts on the mugen though recently because they were getting pretty wore. Never owned an xray though.

thanks, I rarely wreck because I'm used to the most nervous buggy out there (JQ v1) so every time I use a more forgiving car it's like cake to drive

the XB9E is my third Xray and I have to say it doesn't get much stronger, at least for my driving

I'm quite concerned with wear also because we race endurances and keep our buggies for a longer time than most drivers (about 3 years).. and we race them a lot

the Durango is dead, the JQ is still going strong surprisingly

maybe I will get a mp9, it's been some years I wanted to try it out and I just sold all my 1/10 stuff

I got the bittydesign agama a8 body and the losi bitty 2.0 force body. Agama fits best for tall packs and around the side guards. Losi is a bit flared in the front part but with velcro not to shabby looking. I am guessing the jconcepts one for tlr and agama would have maximum clearance for tall 4s packs.


I just put my conversion on last week. Still got the mp9e parts as well but indoor like my tekno version better.

Bitty Design Force body for the nitro MP9 fits it well.

I have the Bitty force for the losi 2.0 on my tekno conversion and it fits, but with a slim 35mm 4s battery. The fighter body will surely fit, but I don't know if there is enough clearance for a full 48-50 mm tall battery.
