Default Kyosho se

The kyosho mp9 and mp9se are almost the same, the se has the medium rear tower and medium springs(shorter). That is currently what I am running. The car is very stable and still nimble. If you want info on the mp9, I would check their thread. There is a bunch of guys ready to answer all your questions....

ercerc8 here is the MP9 thread:

http://www.rctech.net/forum/nitro-of...hread-190.html

you will get better support and quicker answers in there, a lot of people check it. Pretty much all the forum banter is about the SE as all the team guys run the M tower.

The SE is a great car. It lasts longer than the TKI edition because of the harder pivot balls and updated bulkheads.

well big john convinced me to run a k-car with him. since we do pit together and between me and him we will have tons of spares. its just ridiculous how expensive 1/8th buggies have gotten. looks like mugen and hot bodies are the only ones that like to sell affordable cars. too bad i already tried a mugen and i'm def not going to get a hot bodies and a jammin weighs as much as a small volkswagoni think your gonna see kyosho coming back to our track like it used to back in the day with the inferno 7.5!

Not here in CA the tracks are dominated by losi and mugen is a second. There are alot of hot bodies but they dont seem to hold up long (I know someone will say they do but they dont). Even the faithful K car guys have gone losi. I would still say losi has the best track support around.

I would say Kyosho is gaining. Lately more people are switching to Kyosho because they are sick of working on the cars all the time. This thread is a good example of that.

Mark, is Nigel still at DB? You can get support from him too. I know you can because I got parts from him once.

Hi Monty. Yes we are decompressing here over the holidays. A little electric racing, then right back at it in January. CRCRC next month.

I'm not just blowing smoke up your butts guys, I'm getting a lot of PMs from people and posts, "hey PK, got a set-up? I just switched back to Kyosho."

who came up with that "blowing smoke up your ass" anyway? where the heck did that saying come from?

i believe its an old medical practice. they used a billows to literly blow smoke up your arse. can remember what it was susposed to fix. will have to look that up. dosent sound pleasent. happy holidays

well here it is!

Tobacco Smoke Enema (1750-1810)
The tobacco enema was used to infuse tobacco smoke into a patient’s rectum for various medical purposes, primarily the resuscitation of drowning victims. A rectal tube inserted into the anus was connected to a fumigator and bellows that forced the smoke towards the rectum. The warmth of the smoke was thought to promote respiration, but doubts about the credibility of tobacco enemas led to its disappearence and the popular phrase “blow smoke up one’s ass.
