Pick the one that matches your shoes the best. That would be embarrassing to be on the stands and everyone notices your buggy and shoes don't match.

Have a TKI2 and 10e, absolutely loving them!

Just wish they had a bigger presence here in the US.

Anyone having issues with how tightly the TKI2 body fits? My throttle linkage rubs pretty bad with a Kyosho aluminum horn. End point is set to the carb restrictor and the rod is screwed all the way into the plastic part that connects to the carb with no threads showing. Seems to be the barrel on the outside of the horn that’s rubbing. It moves the body, but doesn’t affect anything. Also, the front left corner where the fuel tank is bulges out about a half inch when I push the body down to put the clips in the mounts. I’ve slotted the front and rear holes thinking the body was bound up with no luck. Disappointed knowing my race body will be here in a couple of weeks.

Im not sure about fixing the throttle horn hitting the body but as far as the front left make sure you route the fuel tubing as the manual shows otherwise the fuel tubing interferes with that part of the body your having issues with.

Just got my mp10 tki2 today and am currently assembling it. The gearboxes don’t seem to rotate as smooth as I would think and there is a certain point where it gets a tiny bit rough to turn. I tried with no shims and with 1 shim and it didn’t make a difference. Not sure if this is normal on this car... Do the gears need to be broken in? Will it smooth up once I run a tank or Two through the drivetrain?

once you dive it for 30 mins or so they will become smooth.. but use 1 shim as the manual states as if you dont the gear will shift and then the mess will not be correct and the gears do not smoothen out
