I'm sure most use the AL rear block. The bushings are what we look at. I haven't checked to see if they changed those (yellow)

Sorry, what i meant to ask was this..


your kit came with yellow bushings and upgraded bulkhead.. but did it come with the new aluminum toe block?

Not in the kit, I made sure to order them seperately. Im not sure if they are really must haves, but they seemed to be to me.

Hey guys, just a general question here,

has anyone had any problems with the screws that come in the kit as far as stripping out easily? Not sure if it was something that was only a problem with first gen kits or not, ive put two kits together so far and i seem to keep running into issues with the screws, im also using hudy tools!

not trying to start issues just a general questions

Hiya Tim,

I used to strip the screws out of my touring car and buggies a LOT! (touring cars have a lot of metal to metal parts), it got worse after i started using alu and ti screw kits (mostly for touring). I eventually got tired of having to drill out my screws so i asked my LHS about it.

They said that my tools are blunt. true enough, I changed out all the tool bits from my Hudy tools(i use a taiwanese brand) and never had the problem ever again. I find the Hudy tool bits to be really tough, but not HARD. so after some time, they go blunt. they also seem to be coated with something, and that makes the tool bits a little 'round' to start with. when i compare some new hudy tool bits with mine, I find my taiwanese tool bits fit tighter in a screw then the hudy ones do.

I'm currently building up a new tool set from Kanai tools, they are TIN coated steel, very nice and tight!

for absolute, no nonsense, no stripping screws, i'd suggest you just change out all the screws to TORX screws.

Oh, it also could be that you're torqueing your screws down wayyyy to hard.
My usual rule is, screw it down with your hand lightly grasping the tool handle. once the tool slips in your hand, that's enuff.
I also do not use locktite on any part of the car, but that's cos i do regular maintenance, so loose screws is never a prob.

hope this helps!

Shalom and God Bless!

Ive not really had any issues, Kyosho hardware really seems to be high quality. Which screws are you having trouble with?

yeah ive got a set of hex drivers i got from china too...theyre amazingly high quality...tolerance is impressive to say the least [better than my hudy tools]

I'd love to run torx screws in my cars, we run alot of torx hardware on our 1:1 racecars...is there anyone that has a kit for them? or maybe a supplier that has tiny r/c sizes?

Hi all,
I've never liked the look of the MP9 battery/receiver box as it reminds me of a cheap RTR kit so I have done something about it.

I got a sheet of Carbon fibre graphite and made a new lid for the top of it, you have to change from hump packs to an inline receiver battery and also cut out the divider between the 2 compartments and attach some body mounts. I also have foam tape around the edge to ensure it is sealed well. It may sound like a lot of work for no real gain but looks are important right

Here is a photo of my handywork

Regards...........Dave

I installed the Angled holed pistons in my shocks last night.

I went from using 1.2X8 w/40wt in the front and 1.3x8 w/35wt in the rear to the same set up but just with the angled holes. Does anyone know if this is a good starting point? Do they make so much of a difference that I need to dramatically change the shock oil? I'd like some feedback from anyone who has done any significant testing on them.

IMO, it may be a bit too stiff. You may notice the car rides rough over little bumps and ruts that normally the car would glide over.

Agree with ezveedub,

i changed the pistons in my car at the rear to the angled ones and kept the same oil

the thing was like a kangaroo still driveable but no way near as good as it was ill be dropping the weight in the oil for the next race

i dont know the conversion of WT to CPS, so.. i cant really tell you for certain.. but i know the new pistons give alot more pack, than the old style. And you prolly really should try droppin your oil some.. maybe just 5wt. me personally.. i got 1.3 in front, and 1.4 in rear.. with 400 all the way around.. i have not had time to test really..

Here is a little information on the conversion, its not 100% for every brand, but its better than nothing.
