new body is a Tosa Inu (thats a kind of a japanese bulldog)

could someone please explain the advantage of threaded shock bodies? I really like the clips! Accurate and spot on... but that's just me...

Its funny... ppl complain when a company releases updated kits too fast.. so let's say they release a st-rr2 intead of the 2 to get it updated with the current mp9.. then everybody complains that the team drivers have updated mp9 kits then the st-rr2 is outdated again.. so then nobody has the most updated kit.. (more complaing..) then the mp9 tki2 comes out then a st-rr3 has to be released...

So I think it would be best to have the most updated buggy (your flagship) then have the truggy (which isn't run as largely in some other countries) released. BAM! hope that makes sense. Not ment to be personal but think logically.the st-rr is no less capable then the newer mugens or losi's etc.. actually if I remember right the STRR wasnt based off of the mp777 (st-r) it was a totally new design (may be wrong) then came the mp9.. so actually kyosho was ahead of the curve and everybody else is just catching up now..

Again nothing personal but there is a method to there madness we just have to be patient (sux)

t8rtot the st-r/st-rr was based off the mp777 buggy, the st-rr was out way before the mp9 there has been 3 mp9 kits released in 2 years and basically the only things that have been changed is shorter rear shocks and shock tower, threaded shocks and new body, does that justify having 3 different kits?? the st-rr is still very capable of doing just as good if not better than the new trucks coming out but the biggest flaw with the st-rr is the rear ring and pinion gear and the flexible bulkhead that has caused ALOT of kyosho fans (myself included) to switch to a different brand truggy but instead of kyosho coming out with a harder bulkhead or straight cut gears to fix this problem they keep working on a buggy that really does not need any change and considering truggy is growing and growing (itleast in the US) kyosho should really be working on a better truggy instead of coming out with a new mp9 that basically all it has new is threaded shocks and new body. kyosho is favorite brand so i am not bad mouthing them but if they come out with a new truck they would get ALOT of people switching back to kyosho

One of the photos shows the steering arm where it links to the knuckle, the text underneath says "New" followed by some Japanese text, what have they changed?

Any ideas as whether the RC8 buggy body will fit an MP9, I'm really keen on the new punisher body, a close fit will be fine, don't mind doin a bit of gentle persuasion.
