I have been running the vented Kyosho bells for a while on my Buku and I have not had any problems with dirt of debris getting into the clutch. I have run in mud and extremely dusty conditions with it.

Haven't heard of a new car coming out, but the local hobby shop did mention that Kyosho cars are going to drop in price. Local hobby shop has the tki3 for about a $100 less as well.

Default mp9 nose dives when jumping

I just got done building my tki3 and it really handles awsome. But I'm having problems with jumping. The rear end pops up when I hit even small jumps. I've had two mp7.5s and they both flew like a bird. I have the stock set up from the instructions with stock light blue springs. Can any one here give me any ideas on what I need to change

No.. The new RTR MP9's were just announced for release and they are not even available yet. With that said too Kanai also posted pictures today on Facebook of another batch of Spec-A MP9's that he was working on.

New buggy, nope not for a long while. Maybe some more updates or options though for the current MP9

check your ride height. If the rear end is low, that can happen. Try putting the rear at 30mm. While you're at it check the front too LoL

Make sure you have the appropriate oil in the shocks for the conditions.

Make sure your car doesn't have any drag on the brakes when the trigger is at neutral.

The price reduction is more than likely Kyosho taking advantage of the favorable yen/dollar to decrease their cost disadvantage.

In terms of wing high flight... it is more than likely a little bit of drag in your drivetrain. Brakes, bearings, anything that can cause the wheels to stop rotating when you let off the throttle will make it do this.

I had this happen to me one weekend, and I actually really enjoyed how the car drove. I'm accustomed to running drag brake on my 1/10th scale cars. I took it out after I figured out what was going on because I was afraid of what it could do to my runtime.

I have checked my brakes and drive train and both are perfect. That was what I thought it was at first. Ride hight is 30mm rear and 28mm front. Could it be that I'm running a shock oil that's to thick or thin. Right now I'm using 250 in the rear shocks and 350 in the front shock with the stock piston. I have a 2mm spacer under the rear piston and 1mm under the front piston to set the droop.

Your shock oil is way too thin ( I don't even use that low with my RB6 1/10 )

400 rear
550 front
This would be a good starting point with the kit pistons.
The 2mm spacer goes in the front shocks and the 1mm in the rear.
