The mp10 platform will be around for many years, the mp9 was 9 years?
parts on kanai's car once visible are very quick to market - the eight x pros are still running proto parts from after nats to now that are not in the market yet.
That's good to know , I have noticed tlr off the podiums as of late. I've always wanted to try the inferno series though. And while I like the design of the 8ight X after seeing the issue with the steering knuckles cracking on first batch kits (which I guess they addressed).

Get the Kyosho. The 8ight-X isnít as good as the older Losi cars.

some find the kit setup just a little loose but use kanai's setup on FB, bertons or cody kings easy to drive setup
If you dont just "slam " the throttle out of the cornor and pull the trigger like you should the buggy will drive very well.

What's happening with the mp10 front arms?. I had tki4 for the whole time it was out and probably broke 1 arm.
Mp10 I've done at least 4 arms already from soft impacts.
Trouble is I love the geometry and corner speed in the car, which is stopping me putting the mp9 arms and a,b plates on it.

I donít think there is any reason you could not use the tki4 front arms. My experience with tki4 arms was that they break and take the pills and hinge pins with them and the mp10 I have seen break only broke the arm.

Have you tried the hard arms? Are you using aluminum or plastic caster blocks? On the tki4 I broke a lot of arms with aluminum caster blocks but never with the plastic. If you use the plastic you have to use the b revision though. I broke the kit block on a very easy crash.

ifw468b. There is a bump of extra plastic on the bottom next to where the screw goes into the knuckle.

I'm using alloy 17.5 caster blocks with the insert glued in as they flog out without the old support of the top arms. I have tried plastic blocks but they don't have enough precision in the steering for my liking.
Also on the mp10 arms they are offset backwards compared to 9 arms which makes a difference in Ackerman effect and steering feel.
I'm thinking of making the old mp9 top arms fit for more support of the lower arms. Stay tuned

Left upper arm on Right hand side to get correct sweep and all the other mp9 stuff like top deck and tower and upper arm brace. This should work really well in giving the arms and caster inserts the support they need

My car drives great even with the slop. There are brass bushings available now that should help with the slop.
