this cars are not build for a demolition Derbies....My MP9 tki is on is second season of racing, I replaced the bulkheads to the c, and two front arms due to the pipe/wall being stronger than the car....the rest is just regular maintenance.

Car is tight and upgraded, with a ton of spares. Tracking my 1:1 is taking up the play time. The TKI is awesome, wish I had the time...

Looks like they're just liquidating the older MP777 stock.

I raced a 7.5 and a 777 for years and never broke an a arm, but to be fair I don't own an mp9, I love the new body and improvements, Kinda wish I still raced Kyosho. I did replace the front a arms due to sagging from landing off jumps, but most every buggy does that, the front arms are probably the most abused part of any car.....Keep a few spares on hand....

Both my Son and I raced every model 7.5 and 777 and never broke a front arm but since we have MP9 over 15 broken arms between the both of us.

If you make sure the upper arm is not sloppy or use the King Headz upper arm you will break less lower arms (prevents the lower arm twisting on hard impact).

We modify the plastic upgraded upper arms by drilling the inner pivot hole to 15/64" and press the delrin bush from the King Headz arms in. They last forever this way and much less lower arm breakages.

The upper arm on the MP9 is of very poor design and should be more wider at the inner pivot like the old 777's.

Yeah thats the ONLY thing you don't have to worry about with a mugen.

I reckon it's all that paint and stickers that holds your car together. LOL

Get the ute serviced ok?

Ya I hear ya when I switched from my mbx6 to the mp9 I broke a lot of arms all the time, but 1. I used the older style arms not the hard updated ones. 2. The uppers weren't spaced correctly. 3. I learned how to drive the mp9 the mugen will take a beatin, kyosho too but I think of it as more of a agile precise buggy opposite of the mugen,mugen will also need hours upon hours of maintaince for the buggy to feel consistent ( for me at least)

I love my mp9 I haven't broken in arm in 7-8 races, broke on rear hub which is an original I had on the car when I replaced all the plastics when I got it 12-13 races ago. Buggy is just so good can't wait for the TKI2 to come out!

I also had an MP 777. Never broke anything, but my PM9 has already broken several parts
