They are close i.e. the manual and those pro setup. Some people will tell you it's ok to use the setup recommended by the manual, some will tell you to consider the pros setup as a start while some will tell you to decide what's best since no one know your driving style and track.

One thing I've learned, don't worry about which setup to go with yet but if you must you can find it here http://www.infernosonly.com/Download...heets_s/24.htm

I'm talking through experience, if your driving skill is bad, no car or setup can improvise it (but Kyosho might be more forgiving ). Guys here advise me to go slow and like miracle I'm starting to see the beauty of this car and for some strange reason I can even feel the momentum when I'm doing the jump, feel like you are jumping with the buggy feels good!

Just realize you are driving HB. My buddy who is driving HB Hara Edition will be switching to TKI3 soon (When the stock arrive). He tried another buddy TKI2 and love it but still not decided yet but after seeing I'm using that, and try them, he's getting. He got 2 sets of HB buggy and willing to let it go just to get 1 set of TKI3. That says a lot about this buggy.

No more fitting RC8 bulldog bodies, MP9 finally has their own.

Unless this has been out for a while and I'll go back under my the rock I've been hiding under.

I think you are talking about Bitty Design. I have one at the paint guy, CBD, now. Can't wait to see the magic he works.

Yep i said nuts I ran the OS 19 with a very small mark from the clutch bell and then switched to Nova and have been through 4 front bearings, a bent crank and a cracked block. I think that counts as a problem But the problem is GONE !!! I started with drilling a hole (1/2in) and then i bought a BCE chassis wich came with a hole already in the chassis. I went through one more front bearing and then removed ALL the material under the bell and WALLA problem fixed Truely a bad ass car,,,, just a few tweaks, just like all cars out there.

I've been running the new mp9 BCE chassis that has the relief hole and there is not a mark on it. I've been using the alu rear chassis brace. Still have tons of rear traction and also helps rotate the car a little faster. The BCE chassis is awesome moves everything a tad bit closer to center, stiffer than stock has the relief hole already in it and really reacts a little sharper than stock. Made my lazy stable setup feel faster without losing stability

Oh wow, years of development by Kanai and Kyosho and all it takes is BCE chassis to make the buggy faster and more stable. Interesting.

Yap, Bitty Design. I though I saw the Bulldog body on AbsoluteHobbyz some time back but I might be wrong. Nice, should give that a try.

Just wanted to know if this was a recent concern with K-Cars or were these issues isolated to a certain batch of kits?
Never heard about any issues like this in Europe and i donīt see any reason why change the gearing and how that should make the gears line up better.

PAUSE your keyboard and take some notes !!! Statements like this one make you sound like a fan boy,, The Kyosho that qualified second at Silver State was sporting the BCE chasis. His truggy and E buggy were also wearing BCE chassis and all three in the A main ??? this isnt luck. The product has been proven to work, its just the customer service that need some refinment.
That being said,,,, I also believe that Kanai has been leading the industry for years and with out a doubt has every other car company scratching their heads I to love the Mp9 and have personally switched at least 6 drivers to Kyosho. I do not carry the BCE flag but when something works ,,,well,,,,it just works. Not preaching just saying,,,,.

What he say is he feels the car go where you want it to go, something like when it commit to the turn, it just turn, something about planted... I can't quite recall but something close.
