While I'm happy that they carried-over a lot of MP9 parts, I'm disappointed that they didn't improve maintenance/access. EZ-access front/rear diffs are pretty standard among most top brands by now. Complacency doesn't suit you, Kyosho.

....split center diff mount would have been great, as would arms with replaceable stiffners like most have these days. At least they got rid of the front upper arms and went to a turnbuckle!!!

The body looks like a snow plow or steam trains cattle catcher though

The body looks ugly lol. I might be sticking with the mp9 body. New arms but they don’t look solid like some have mentioned. Comes with an extended lower engine mount plate so that’s a nice upgrade. I noticed the front shocks are layed down now??

I noticed new part numbers for chassis and dirt guards, front and rear arms, rear uprights, all 6 uniís, a,b,c,d plates, front and rear towers, wing mount, and body. Iím sure that I missed a few. It will be interesting to see which anodizing will be included. Canít wait!

I assume Kyosho is working on a new Alumiunium coating (probably UHD or HDR coating) since they included the HD-coated shocks in the kit along with coated alu balls for links and hard chassis

Sooo letís summarize.

- no solid arms and no plates to change stiffness
- no easy access diff mounts
- virtually no changes to the chassis layout
- coating still tbd

gotta say, that is pretty disappointing - they shouldíve called it a TKI 5 at best.
