No offense to you, but if your not an ultra fast and good driver, stay away from the mp9. mbx6 should work just fine for ya!!
what a load of bullshit. i would buy a mbx6 just to stay away from douche bags like you.

I wasnt trying to offend anyone.

As for the mbx6, i didnt mean for it to be NON competitive because thats far from it. Its a very good buggy and can compete with the rest of them. I just feel the build of the mp9 is amazing but so difficult to setup (hint: for people who know what their doing~not saying you dont know). A lot of people think the same way. No offense was to be intended but then again this is drama tech.

Yeah, I'm sure they'll probably sponsor him when he turns 12 or so...

I'm really leaning towards the Mbx as Fioroni has just put out a chassis for it (not a big turning factor but thats what i've run for years) and that online shops seem to have more mugen parts instock and thats what i need.

I'll post up when i get the box from ups
When you build the kit, be sure to ream the arms. It makes a HUGE difference in the way the car behaves.

Not sure about everyone's else feedback, but I own both cars. Currently, out the box, the MBX6 is more durable compared to the MP9 TKI kit. The MP9 SE does have some improved parts now, but they both need some minor parts here and there to be really good. The MBX6 requires IMO the upper front arm holder. The MP9 needs the newer upper arms and AL upper arm holder also. The MP9 does has the free spinning, low drag drivetrain and the CB/spur gears see to last forever. I prefer the TKI MP9, with option 93mm axleshafts F & R with the C bulkheads. Also, clearancing the rear prop shaft from the engine on the MP9 is very important. The MBX6 of course would be the version two kit, with AL rear hubs and TTR/RC8 brakes rotors and MBX5 brake plates. Add the AL axles shafts and center drive cups also.

I wasnt trying to bash anyone! Sorry if it came off that way.

I just think the mp9 is a whole different design than the mbx. If you drive a mbx6 and then drive a mp9, there 2 completely different machines. Their both very excellent cars. They both require experience(for setup, maneuverability, etc.). I personally just think the mp9 needs a little bit more attention to get its full potential out of it!!! And once you do find the mp9's full potential, you can drive the wheels off of it.

I wasnt trying to be rude or trying to bash anyone nor any manufacturer!

i would think it would come do to weather you want pivot balls, or c-hub suspension type.

i mean if the prices are so close to each other, thats really all it comes down to.

I own an MBX6 AND MBX6T! The MP9 is a great car but you won't have a let down by purchasing a MBX6! Every buggy needs to be set up to cater to your driving style as well as the track it's being run on. It doesn't matter if it's an MP9 or a Hot Bodies D8. If I were you, I'd purchase a MBX6 and spend the dough you'd save by not getting a MP9 on a good engine.

Hey 'Dub.

Were you the one saying that the MP9's driveshafts had a tendancy to pop-out when the suspension would go to full down-travel? I've got my SE buggy in front of me; I've got it set-up with full froop front & rear 100 and 121.5mm respectively, and they show no sign of wanting to pop-out.

Perhaps it's due to the fact that I have the slightly shorter rear shocks, which limit my downtravel?
