Some of the comments on this thread are hysterical and read as though they're coming from a 9-time IFMAR World Champion 1/8-scale buggy design engineer.

Kanai has 8 though, which is the most ever, so entertainingly enough I know that's not the case.

I wish they will be the winner for the next IFMAR,
signing as many top drivers as they can.

Def more changes and improvements than the manual initially led me on to. Happy to see that. This seems likely a pre order for me

Hi guys.

Can someone please tell me how itís possible to use the outer holes on the susp arms, without loosing droop ?
what parts do i need for my TKI4 to do the same? Cant figure it out since itís not the MS (50mm) front dampers. Itís expained in this thread without me understanding.

Wonder if you can use the same starter box settings to hit the fly wheel?

Yeah, I'm not sure how they achieved that. Having owned the MP9 tki3 in the past, you pretty much had no droop if you used the outer holes in the a arms. If I had to guess, I'd bet they lowered the shock towers mounts to achieve the added downtravel but what do I know.

The car looks great imo....

Nice to see they added the aero side pods as pioneered by Delta in Italy. Should make it a bit more popular with the European drivers.

If true, this is probably the biggest single game changer between the MP9 and MP10. This should provide more steering. This is also why a new chassis part number was required.
I agree with you. This is the biggest change. The MP9e Evo moved the CG forward and that thing turns on a dime.

I really like how the evo drives. I didnít realize it had a more forward weight bias because it seems more hooked up in the rear than the nitro car and no loss in steering.

That's actually a a substantial change to the car. Also, from the photos, the car looks to have much more rear droop...
The rear pivot is wider for shock temperatures? I'd like to see the physics on that on. For equivalent damping the same amount of energy needs to be managed.

By widening the rear pivot they increased the rear roll stiffness. My guess is the lower shock mounting holes also moved out a little bit too, that would give the arm less advantage against the shock meaning the shock can be softer.

At at least thatís how I read the press release.
