I just wonder where did Xray got the brains to develop the smart diff.... that's easy just got a peak on BBF difs!!!!
Of course its just normal things on R&D deparments nowadays but sometimes people get blinded because of they favourite RC brand...

Didnt you say you were done in this thread?
BTW you said you own a hobby shop..which one is it?
I mean it would have to be pretty big, you know with you driving every buggy ever made enough to know that without a doubt XRay is the most indestructable and and such as you claim...

You own amain? Carolinas? Modhobby? Tower? lmfao

Just curious, how old are you?

Once he was racing hard with another guy, they both blew the corner before a small double and kind of nosed into the top of the 2nd jump and one drove away, it wasn't the Kyosho. It was even sweeter b/c the kyosho guy is a total knob to everyone at the track. Karma is a... you know.

I feel for the guy breaking all the arms if he pays for parts, that's probably $300 in broken arms knowing kyosho's jacked up prices. As far as the exchange rate goes, all the top car's components are made overseas, whether it's Japan, Thailand, china or whatever there is no reason for the price of the MP9 to be so high.

Kyosho would sell way more kits if it were in the same ballpark as any other top level chassis on the market. But they've always sold junk ever since the ultima came out and won the worlds with a completly Joel Johnson and trinity built car, but they fooled a lot of us into buying it. At least now there are so many options that people are starting to get wise to their lazy business practices

I saw him break everytime he ran his MP9 and he is fast. Karma is COOL

Gentleman


My 16 year old nephew has been staying with me for the past few days..I have just noticed that he has been logging in as me and acting like an ass!! he is being dealt with.( he wont sit down for a WEEK!!!) My deepest apologies to all of you who have been offended by his stupidity and the attacks he has directed toward some of you.. I do not own a hobby shop, I have not driven every buggy out there, and I do not speak to my fellow RC buddies that way..I have been letting him run my XRAY 808 and of course I told him XRAY was the best (dont we all feel that way about what we drive) He obviously needs more ass whoopin and he will never get onto this forum again...I hope you can all forgive the damage he has done, but be assured it was not me, and will never happen again...I was at work logged in as me, and he was at my house also logged in as me. I dont know how I could have been logged in at the same time from both places..If any of you would like to speak with me personally about this send me PM and I will send you my email address. Madrussian, Jewn beef, and What..apologies especially to you, and if you want to come to AZ and Kick his little butt, I'll hold him down for you!

I agree. I have been trying to teach him some stuff, but he has ruined that. His Mom is coming to get him Tommorrow, he was supposed to stay until Sunday..

Those of you that know me, also know I would never talk to any of you like that..I am usually the one who tries to keep the peace, not start the war!

I have been known to have stupid humor, or say silly things, but I dont attack people or bash other products..please accept my apologies again

Here is the track where the K car breaks, I believe it is usually front lower arm, at the lugs where the inner hinge pin goes through

it is around 44 sec a lap and Dale is within 1/2 a second of the track record so he is no slow coach.

The Australian Nationals will be held on it in March, will be intersting to see what other brands struggle with durability especially in a 1 hour final
