Is there anything you'd change first from from the tki3 to the tki4? What makes the most difference ?

if you donít run on a smooth track donít change anything. The next step is the tki4 b block, knuckles, steering tie rods, and 16 or 17.5 degree caster blocks.

I did the front shocks last year I think they were the 50mm. Is that what the TKI4 has? I was thinking of doing the wing mount and body are those direct fits? Also are diffs and cases the same?

Yes metric . MIP tools are good is far as allens . Nut drivers are good too . But you can probably get any brand they don't strip like cheap allen wrenches .

Shocks are different color but that is the only difference other than shock pistons but again use the tki3 parts. The longer front shocks are an option for either car and there is a different shock tower for those. Diffs are the same. Wing mount may be different and the bodies are interchangeable.

What are you running for pistons and oil? I don't remember what I have in there. I haven't touched the car in a year.

In the latest iterations of the MP9, have there been any improvements to the durability of the front A arms? I have a pair of MP9's that are both electric and I've always had a bad time keeping front a-arms alive. I always blamed the extra weight of the electric set up.
