"at first do not tighten the screw that meet the chassis super tight" which screws specifically?

Thanks a lot for the help man!
Just getting started now

I've heard the a-arms are fragile on mp10. Have you guys had issues? Should I get hard aarms?

Ive broken 3 front and 1 rear in a years time.. 1 diff case and 2 ring gears 20 or so races and 15 have had 30 min mains. So i would say it holds its own for parts

that sounds bad, but in after you mentioned you race time, that doesn't sound bad at all.

opps i thought this was truggy thread.. that was on truggy..
buggy was way less.. 2 shock towers from getting hit.. 2 arms. 2 shock shafts shaf 1 "c" block from getting hit and a hinge pin.. very solid car.. i have all the arms in production for buggy and truggy but i like the soft arms.. i feel like the hard arms might snap easier in the 30 deg weather for indoor racing in the winter for midwest racing

Well, that's even better.

I am patiently waiting for the MP10Te to come out. I might just break down and build my own.

i would of figured that would of been the upgrade but guess i was wrong. most of the guys are using the mp9e parts to make the 10t e-version.

I'm putting it out there for everyone who has previously owned the mp9 and upgraded to the mp10. In a viscous search for parts over the past year, I recently got ripped off $200cdn from a guy on this site claiming to have a bunch of stuff. I sent him money and now he's fallen off the face of the planet. People on this forum have assured me that parts for my 7.5's were not going to be a problem moving forwards, but after this fraud incident I am giving up on the platform. I waited 5 months for an oem front bumper for one of mine! I digress. I don't race (yet) but am trying hard to improve. I now have 2 local options I am looking at, an mp10 roller nearly brand new (raced a few weekends) with a reasonable amount of spares. Or, an mp9 TKI3/4 mix with engine and a ton of spare parts (including 2 chassis plates) but really beat up, the seller has even kept exploded gears in the kit - who knows why. MP9 guy claims he actually has enough to literally build a second buggy. Both are around the same price, the mp9 would no doubt be a better value in terms of parts and has at least 2 sets of wheels BNIB and a slightly lower asking price. However being an older design and the condition of it, in my mind I would still be more satisfied with the mp10 even though I will eventually end up spending a lot more in the long run. Making matters worse, is that in an interview with Kanai it was said the mp10 was designed more for high-grip surfaces, but in my current use of the buggies I am most often on low grip surfaces.

I would really like to hear your feedback, I have to pull the trigger on one of these before they disappear.

i have not ran the mp9 only the mp10 and it works well in all conditions with a little bit of setup work. every track is different in terms of grip and design so 1 setup may help but not the ticket at that track. ive ran on low grip tracks 1 weekend and did very well then the next weekend super high bite and also did very well with it.

mp10 uses a bunch of the mp9 parts but also has a bunch of newer parts.. with a little bit of setup help and some patience you will do good on all surfaces.. its taken me about a year to really know what the buggy and truggy want in a certain condition. i was always told it takes about a year to understand the true characteristics of a new buggy.. well its pretty spot on. thats why when i change a brand i do it for the long run and not just a year and switch again.

I agree with J,
I've just started racing this year and have the 10. Iíve ran on well groomed medium to high bite and blown out tracks that werenít touched all season bc of COVID. Being my first year racing I took time to learn about setup and the car has been great in all conditions. I actually love running it on looser tracks.

I also watched the Kanai interview and if Iím not mistaken he was referring to the original body being better suited to certain conditions, not so much the car itself. The new body is supposed to be better in high bite I believe.

For the mp10 shocks I saw a video where the guy used 2mm spacer for front shock shaft and 1mm for rear (spacer that goes on top of shock shaft, then screw piston on)

So for the rear I built, I did the metal washer, a 1mm spacer and then the piston. then a nut. Is that correct ?
