Get the new tki2 hard chassis, same awesome hard coating as the tki1 chassis and the tki2 has a little bit different milling I think, and different bends for the new side guards. If you buy the tki2 chassis you will need the new side guards part number if474.

My MP9 held up at PNB too and except had battery problems in my last qualifier when I was on a 12 lap run with ONE minute to go!! I went through shock therapy and lost all power! Then in my main, power kicked on and off a few times so I brought it in, big bummer, had a great time, nothing broke on my buggy even in practice which was brutal out there. Next time I'll buy a new lipo for the race.

I saw a lot of MP9's out there, lots of support last weekend, was also cool to see Lutz running the ST-RR, he was crazy fast with that truck wow! Was happy to see Travis bump into the a-main!

A few Questions. I know this is the nitro thread, but i also know cody runs the electric car too and there is not much help in the electric thread.

I'm looking at getting an MP9e and have a few questions.

-Does it come with aluminum hinge pin holders?
-How is the stock setup
-What would be a good setup to start with for outdoor on a medium sized semi dusty and bumpy track with large jumps?
-What pistons does the car come with?
-How are the stock black springs
-What are some spares that I should keep? I want to be prepared.
-What upgrades does the car need to be as solid as its TKI2 counterpart?

I know it's a lot of questions about a car in the wrong thread, but really will appreciate any answers considering there is very little info on the MP9e

- as a start, here is the manual: http://www.kyosho.com/jpn/support/in...rno_mp9e_m.pdf
- stock black springs are the lime green in front and purple in back (I think Pitpop mentioned this along time ago)
- no alu hinge pin holders
- thats your upgrade ;-)
- piston front: 1.2*8, piston rear 1.3*8 (non tapered)
- spare parts: arms

You might want to run the 91mm dogbones with the 2mm off-set hubs. Just check the plunge into the outdrives and make sure the pins aren't bottoming out.

All the info you're looking for can be found on the site from Kyosho USA (I see you mentioned them in your signature, visit their site, that wouldn't hurt)

start with cody's setup: http://www.kyoshoamerica.com/assets/...rcrc2011ai.pdf

Not to sound like an ass, but...assuming we all drive mp9's, they all going to have different engines, pipes, servos, rx, rx packs, etc. and to top it off we all drive different, and at different tracks. I can understand people asking for what tires work where, NOW setup's???, there is nothing wrong with the mp9 box setup and adjust it to the track you drive at and your driving.
End of rant.
I am not a good driver by any means, I enjoy the hobby and know for a fact, that with a properly setup car, you fight the traffic and track and not worry about the car. There are many, many pages out there explaining setup's or you can just ask here, tells us what your car is doing that you don't like, and someone will explain how to correct it.

I think the human thing to do is not worrying about parts for your toycar, but to think about the thousands of people losing everything they had in their lives.

parts should be fine, they just need a week to reorganise and get back in business.
