it just sounds like u guys are nosing the car into jumps and hitting the walls perhaps. I had a few issues with my eight and since none of come up. To go through that many sets of front arms is getting to think ur hitting to many non moving objects?

This ain't a newb talking about his new mp9, looks to me like they've been around the block a time or 2.

That's great advice though, drive like a pro team driver. Hey what a great idea I'll have to try that one. If we all could do that we wouldn't look up to them soo much for their skill. They're team drivers going all around the world for a reason.

IDK if they are right about the mp9 being weak in the arms or not, I just thought the answer/advice was far from anything usefull.

Oh well, carry on......

Ohhh god....

this is the only thing i did not want to hear...

I have kyosho as the best ...and when they released the car it was like the god of all the buggys...

maybe is just good marketing maybe the car is as good as it was intedent to be..

i dont know...

i personally did two races on astro turf in uk..very cold wether with a lot of hits here and there and the only thing i broke was the body and the wing..

other than tha the car was ok..

but all the cars seemed very good there..
even some mavrick beat me up..but they had a lot of practising and setup on that track..

my opinion about the mp9 is:

The car has a very good potential and maybe some of us dont know how to use it.. even the pro drivers at the ifmar worlds did not come up with good results as they did not had time to learn the mp9...other than some issues it has a different driving style and we have to learn it...at the end of the day time will show..some of us might like it some not...but it was intendet to be the best in my opinion..

some will say the mp777 took the worlds in the same way...the mp777 for me was much easier to find its potential and drive it well...

What?



Regarding the MP9's plastic. It seems that all mfg's are going to stiffer plastic. Losi had really soft plastic in their 1.0 cars, and I hardly ever saw one break an arm, but they got sloppy quick. The 2.0 plastic is alot stiffer. I broke 5 arms on the mbx5r I had a couple years ago, and it was not due to bad driving. Mugen changed the plastic.

Are you the same guy on RCU forums spouting off the same stats about the Z-car?

Your statement doesn't really prove anything and there are far too many other considerations in picking out a buggy or there are too many variations when testing.

True. These cars are no better than the materials that they are made of.

Default mp9

Hello boys i just read the whole post and here is what i can say a pro hyosho driver known more for truggy than buggy but fast with both was haveing issues at his local track with the new mp9 they are going to be fast but not if you drive them like the old ones. old k cars who go in hard and come out sideways and hot. the new one you set up good for turns and finess it around and it can be fast as hell but bash it and will have issues all cars have problems losi gets sloppy after one good race day x ray tigh but like k car expensive and hard to get parts ae bad plastics k car plastics once you learn what breaks you will learn how to make it so it dosnt brake. either way any car out there can be fast if you set it up right any car.....

My "statement" is actually the test results from Extreme Rc Magazine, which does the most extensive performance tests of all the rc car magazines.

Have you been on their forums and asked about their tests and how they try to provide standard comparisons? And read their answers?

What Extreme R/C's test results do prove, is that despite costing almost 3x as much, a 4 g heavier, less hp Z-Car smoked it in the 0-60ft time, which they try to do with as close as possible standards.
I would say that would speak volumes...at least if you are capable of understanding what the test results show.
Same as I answered (you know, not spouting , but trying to explain, rude boy) on the other forum...

I agree there are far more considerations than just 0-60 ft times. However that was not the point I was making, please try and keep up, ok...

Durability?? LOL the Z-Car is the only rc car ever tested to get a 10+ in durability.

No need to get your panties all in a bunch...

How many sponsored Kyosho drivers of the MP9s have you personally talked to?

In detail?

Thanks for playing
