i agree it seems like kyosho is behind the ball on thier cars lately. everyone else is selling these cars already why do we have to sit around for kyosho. but a mp9 E would be sick. i saw a 777 conversion but it dident look as good as the losi or ae.

The Kyosho guys had one out at OC/RC a month or two ago. I didn't get a good look under the lid that night...but there is at least one of them around.

What do you guys want? The car is in R&D still. You want a truck to come out and be crap? They will release it when it is ready....

An E MP9 from the factory would be cool though....

Makes no difference, we will prolly be upgrading the rear end, hubs, dogbones, shock shafts, motor plate, idler gear, springs, ball cups, bushings, diff balls, turnbuckles and shock tower anyway !

From what I heard they had one off parts that they were trying with all the designers just going thru different things, Cody King was driving it and beat Barry Baker and few others testing there 1/8 scales.

I can see 1/8 scale being alot bigger by the end of this year for sure.

i agree with you on the 1/8 scale and as for the rt5 dident teebo just run and win with it. but anyway i just want kyosho to let us know if something is in the works. plus they can make a conversion kit for the mp9 like losi and have it in production real quick then work on a factory kit. i just want to know if i should wait or buy a rc8 or losi
