I am now building my new E-Buggy TKI4 so I will let you know after the weekend. I really like how the car is basically the same as the nitro brother.
If you could let me know, that would be great! Thank you

Default Gearing

Just wondering what gearing people are running for a 2000kv motor?

I'm testing today so hopefully I can make some more educated guesses on setup. I'm starting with a 16t pinion to see how it goes with a 1900kv motor. Track conditions will be pretty chilly but ill at least have a starting point.

This is what I ran in my buggy two years ago while racing Kyosho. I also ran a 2050 with 15T as well.

These were Trinity D8 2000KV and a Tekin Gen 1 T8 2050KV motors, all while running at the time a Novak Activ8 ESC. Powered via Trinity Titanium 4S 5500mAh. No Motor Cooling Fan. No Issues.

I no longer run this setup, yet this is what was in my car at the time.

Looking at Tebo's more recent setups for the MP9e, available here https://jtprc.com/18-setups/

Many of them are using heavy diff setups like 20/20/15, 10/10/10, 10/15/10. Anyone tried these? And what's your opinion?

I know this has probably been asked, but I just converted one of my nitro cars to electric, now I need to know what bodies will fit and clear a 4s lipo. I had a few tki4 bodies painted up already but they hit the battery and the body doesn't fit correctly. I know the mp9e body will fit, but they 1 mil body is hit and miss in stock and with me living in Vietnam I need to order more than one to cut down on the shipping cost. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Good morning. Now that the MP9e TKI4 has been out for a while can anyone weigh in on thoughts on the car? Any comparisons to other ebuggies? Thanks everyone.

So far it's seems super easy to drive and pretty tough. I did break a front arm on mine after landing on another buggy that cased a triple. Compared to the EB48.3 I was driving before it feels super planted and safe while also being fast.

leadfinger rc make an mp9e specific body which is pretty tough.

i have also used the Jconcepts silencer for the mp9 nitro with success, it will fit an 4s pack, tightest part is around the esc.

Thanks SpongeX. I am coming from an RC8B3e that was a touch edgy. I'm hoping the Kyosho turns as good but is a little more settled.

Anyone else?

I have both of these and run them back to back. They drive very differently, the mp9 has a lot of rear traction, I added all of the tki4 parts and it seemed to increase steering. The 817 has a ton of steering and a loose rear. Once you get used to the 817 it's very controllable, but prone to sudden loss of rear traction. I'm made a bunch of setup changes to the 817 and it responds really well to small changes.

Does the tki4e at least include aluminum rear hubs? I see they have aluminum steering knuckles but not the "C" hubs. Doesn't say on kyosho America
