Still showing as out of stock on their site though. How'd you manage to place an order and get it shipped out already?

Hi foampervert (man I like your nick lol), no it won't, that's the beauty of it.

I didn't get to try BUKU so much yet as I realize I need to be able to 'hear' my engine more before I can actually tune BUKU. But I have them and would love to start using them when I'm much better with engine tuning.

Check out this forum

http://www.rctech.net/forum/offroad-...-products.html

pm THE PHILLY JYNX, he is the owner of BUKU and a cool guy, he will be happy to answer all your questions.

Or shinnbad12 (scott) will also be able to share with you since he's running BUKU on MP9.

Again, I've no issue with the stock clutch (you can trust the stock if I don't have any problem since I'm the worst driver here... for now ) but if you want alternative, I will put my money on BUKU.

But spring strength is exactly the same, whether you set it to engage early or late. Won't it cause the engine to bog on off throttle?

Hey John C. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Yap, she's one smart lady and I will consider her smarter if she were to give me good discount for it

Btw, I do need the Left hand grip but I think that come as optional (as what I read). Usually when it's optional, you have to pay for it and if it is so, that SUCKS! Feel like I'm being penalized for being born left handed! You think I can sue them if they are really charging me for that

- 3D extension unit
- Left hand grip (doesn't apply to me)
- ST unit stick type (I'm not entirely sold this one)

The only concern is it being slightly top heavy. Regardless, I'll be getting one as soon as A Main starts their pre-order.

Reading this ..asked me to come down and give it a try. was . Smart business man that LHS owner is.

Get an M11x bro, switching it to left-handed is as easy as unscrewing the handle and turning it around 180degrees.

Pre-order bro, just order, and pay first and once the item in, they will ship to you.

I've tried the Sanwa brand but the MT-4 which I've given to a friend as I don't really like it. I'm using Futaba 4PKS right now and love it but I me being me, would like to give the new EX a try, simply love the design! I'm sucker for good design man.

Really? You reckon the new KO radio is a good design? Not saying the modularity is a bad thing, just the actual design of it looks stuck together, not very cohesive. I reckon it has to be the ugliest radio I've ever seen and looks like something out of the Night Rider era. The HOFF!!!

Been running Mugen for years but now I'm shopping around for a new car. Has anyone switched from the MBX6R to the MP9TK2 and have any insight for me?

Thanks.

Hey aaron, you don't know good design my mate

Our taste is totally against each other, I love the green pills while you hate them. I'm glad we are not husband and wife or it will be disaster

Scott, where are ya when a (soon to be) ex-Mugen driver needs you?
He'll hook you up with all the info you need Dave, but you can be safe in the knowledge that the MP9 is way more forgiving, heaps easier to drive and drive fast and Scott said he had never driven as fast as when he changed over to the MP9, after a few years with Mugen.

I held the EX-1 in my hands and then held the Eurus EX-10 right after it, and I have to say, the EX-1 did not feel good in my hands. It's very top heavy and not as well balanced as the EX-10. I have an M11x that I would exchange for a Eurus EX-10 possibly. The EX-1 does look like the Knightrider transmitter, good call aaron lol! I could just picture the Hoff up on the stand using it..."KITT, set course for TQ..."

I drove Mugen before Kyosho, but it was the MBX6 and right after the longer chassis came out. All I can say is out of the box the Kyosho is straight planted. That, and I've never heard anyone drive a Kyosho and go "nah, this car just doesn't feel good at all, it's not for me." The usual response I get from people is "yeah, but the cost is pretty high compared to other cars", to which I reply "by the time you spend the difference in cost on the other car to get it to the level of the Kyosho in terms of performance and quality components like aluminum hubs, captured hinge pins, shocks, etc, you'll have already purchased a Kyosho. And you're already going to have the shocks and springs, might as well go all the way."

Says the guy who runs a Bitty body shell. I rest my case. Oh, before I rest, please tell me which part of the horribly wierd and gangly looking EX1 is good design?

The horrible looking, poking out wire at the bottom? The disjointed LCD which is the wrong size comared to the rest of the TX and has curves/round corners, whereas the rest of the TX is all straight lines? The awful looking robot's foot at the bottom of the hand grip? Need I really go on? It's such a hopeless mish-mash of shapes and angles and wierdness.

HAHAHA!!! You know I'm just messin with ya doc, obviously it's all subjective and pure opinions. You know, it's the same as some guys will go for big boobs or dumb blondes or tasty brunettes or whatever. As I've said many times before, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I definitely ain't gonna be holding the EX1 any time soon. I just straight out reckon it looks horrible and is definitely something straight outta compton... oops, I meant the 80's (when that song was popular).

Looking forward to hearing replies, even replies with good life from kyosho ones as to see if I'm doing something wrong.
Hey Kev, the Kyosho Clutch is the go, just file the sides of the shoes after every meeting and don't use a clutch tool when removing or fitting the shoes as they tend to over flex the springs. We get 4-5 race meets out of a set of shoes and about 3-4 set of shoes before the bell needs replacing.
I have noticed the latest shoes are more chamfered on the edges than before.
