I always run my tank screws a little loose so the tank is a little loose. I have never had a problem cracking tanks.

Default TK1 ?????

Hi All.

As i posted earlier i bought a MP9 second hand. I always thought it was just a normal SE. Only 2 tanks old in grass park and is like new.

After reading that link of all the specs im pretty sure its a TK1.

I have the box and it says Kyosho International, Has AKA tires. Gold turn buckles. I just thought it was a SE. I have put the optional rear block on and ordered some alloy posts for the radio tray and wing. Have put on a set of OT spring strut braces and thats all.

From what i have read the TK2 has a the original rear end. Is the TK1 good with the other set up??? Or do i need to convert it to TK2 specs.

Any help much appreciated.
Thanks.

For the spec A car I suggest remove and add loctite to all the screws that go into metal (shock stay, radio tray, steering) and perhaps remove the gearboxes and add grease to the gears (I prefer hg joint grease Kyosho part # 96508). That's pretty much it... that's what we ran at Kyosho Masters

Car looks great!

After seeing Cody Win the Worlds I thought I'd build up a car that was identical as possible to his winning can. only difference, I'm running the 3-port Orion instead of the 5-port. Anything I should be checking for on these spec A kits that should be addressed before i run it. In past, I tried to only get kits so that I can do all my little build tweaks. Attached is a photo of the car.

Or you can use the narrow wheelhub and use the standard position of the insert on the arm.

If you run a race series where you don't have to comply to ifmar rules about how wide your car is you can use the offset carrierhubs, standard wheelhubs and standard insert position, you'll need the 93 mm universals for that. You will gain 2mm on the back of your car, making it more stable.

- The new TKI2 body fits the TKI perfectly, you won't need the new sideguards or chassisplate. Only thing you'll need is a lower airfilterset, such as the one used on the TKI2. The TKI2 body sits lower.

-I really don't know what the difference is between the previous chassisplates and the new IF473 plate & the IF474 side guards, from the pics I can't tell any differences. Haven't had them on the bench yet ;-) On the TKI2 kit the 'normal' chassisplate is included.

- I didn't use the new shocks yet, winter time in The Netherlands, so indoor with the RB5 sp2!

Here is a series spec chart for the MP9 line-up: http://www.kyosho.com/eng/fun/specia...al_data02.html
Thanks a lot..

So from what i understand kyosho tried to change the rear geometry a bit.. they refined the rear end.. It sounds like the thought of jq where he uses longer hubs but shorter arms but his design looks a bit different..

I want to follow cody kings setup which is 2mm offset standard wheel hubs but from what i understand the bushings inside the a arm..

there must be some reason he used this setup in the worlds...


I hope they worth the money as i am going to buy them as soon as i can..

Best upgrades are:

- medium rear shocks
- medium rear tower
- 93 mm swing arm
- 2mm offset rear hubs

These are the hot tickets for us tki owners.

Default MP9 SE discontinued???

Guys, Maybe someone can chime in but I have heard the MP9 SE has been discontinued. I've also noticed it has been on B.O. for quite some time at A-main and no longer on RPP's website.

Thanks,

the threaded shocks are quite good, they seem to bleed easier with the new cap

Thanks,
The SE version kit is most definitely still being produced, so if any shop has it on back order, they should receive the kits. I will check the supply line to see how long it might be...

Kyosho America will receive SE kits January 20th. The back orders should be filled a couple days after...

Is the out of box set up for the MP9 new racer friendly?

I am getting back into racing after 10 years and have narrowed my car choice to the MP9, 8ight, and the JQ Car.

I want to get the most bang for my buck while not getting frustrated with set ups.
