hey everyone, just wanted to say great forum and nice to read through all the recommendations and advice from people who have the buggy. I just picked up my brand new MP9 TKI kit and started putting it together, loving every bit of it.

Just a few questions, regarding the rear diff once placed in the rear bulkhead and the two pieces of the bulk head put together it is very notchy and defiantly not smooth, i then put the front diff together in the bulkhead and it was a smooth as silk, any ideas on what i am doing wrong?.

Regarding shims on both the front and rear diffs i havnt put any shims in at the moment but after about an hours use when the car is run in im assuming it will need the shims then? or would you recommend i put them in now?

sorry if these questions have been answered before im a bit of a newbie and the only other kit i have built but hated was the RC8B

thanks

Post diff shimming

hi deepal place one of the big shims on the gear side front and rear and place a clutch shim use same size clutch shims between the small bearing and the 13t bevel gear again front and rear it will be notchy but once you run a few tanks through the car it will be smooth and your gear mesh will be set perfectly after that also for your wheel axles left and right place one shim on the inside then slide your drive shaft through the hubs and then place two shims on the outside and put your wheel hex on. this is how i do it no probs what so ever cars smooth as

New parts are in and mounted, alu cnc front casterblocks (IFW412) and alu cnc rear chassisbrace (IFW413). Let's see how they do in my next race. At that track I had a broken casterblock last year ;-)

Wow! So much for a lightweight car... It isn't going to be very light anymore...
Good luck at the races though... Will this cure the dynamic front caster situation?

What do most people run the Long 95mm green rear springs, or the medium length 84mm green springs on the rear. Is one stiffer than the other? or just less progressive?

Parts at your Kyosho dealer, don't know if Kyosho USA has them already. I got them from Kyosho Germany, with a big thanks to Frank Lempke!

The buggy is still light! the rear brace is 2 gramm's heavier then stock, casterblocks are 1 gram a piece heavier, so that's 4 gram in total extra ;-)

just a quick question im sure its been answered before but to many pages on thes thread to read through and find the answer. On the stock kit set up for the MP9 TKI what shock oil do you guys recommend i start with for the front and the rear?

Any other set up advice?

Our track here is hard packed clay, not to bumpy,, couple of big jumps, few tight corners and a low speed section.

thanks for your help

450/350 for a base setup, but since were getting into hotter weather, i would probably bump it up to 500/400.
