What's the strength/wear/longevity like compared with the Kyosho clutch bells? Also, I've just been checking the Amain website and the Protek 13t and 14t clutch bells which are specified as "Kyosho style" state that they work for everything except the MP9(!!). How is that even possible? It says ok for ST-RR Evo but not MP9, when the Evo uses the MP9 clutch setup, FFS!

Anyone got any ideas what's going on there?

The verbiage on the amain site is incorrect. They work perfectly fine on the MP9. I have been using them for 8 months now. They are just as good as the K version.

I thought that was the case because I also checked the Kyosho 13t clutch bell and it lists all the same cars as being compatible but includes the MP9. It's a bit strange how they actually make a point of saying that the clutch bell will work with all or most Kyosho 8th scale nitro vehicles but specifically not the MP9. Really wierd as they normally have such reliable blah blah blah about their products on the Amain site.

Anyhoo, if it really is as good as the Kyosho part but for 1/2 the price, I know I'm gonna give them a try. 2 for the price of 1 never hurts.

Sean were you able to get those pics?

I forgot to take em, but Aaron's right, the 66s are really too long. Even when I screw the shock ends all the way down, there's too much uptravel. The 63s are definitely the way to go in the rear. I do have to unscrew the front shock ends a little to get the right uptravel though, I just couldn't remember it was the fronts not the rears. But I did run the 66s in the shocks at a race today and they were fine and didn't produce any adverse handling effects. They're fine to use in a pinch if you don't have 63s.

OK guys just wanted to post some of my race experiences with the tki2. the car is phanominal. I have only raced nitro about 3 times. the first race i tq ed and won the main, the next event was a bit bigger so i raced intermediate and tq ed and finished 2nd in the main, the last race was this past weekend. on friday the car was really good but had the same issues as my earlier outings which i'll post in a moment. on saturday in my first qualifier i was warming up the car and noticed my steering wasnt centering, i had read on here that some guys where glueing the king pin bushing in so i did that before quals because i wanted to tighten up some of the play in the front of the buggy. well lets just say i dont recommend doing that. i was just trying to get my run in and figured with the guys i was up against it wouldnt be a huge problem. so about 2 laps in some guys going the wrong way and hits me head on,shattering the front lower hingepin brace. which brings me to my first complaint parts availability, its always a problem with kyosho cars. the other issue is the area i race most everyone who runs kyosho is a di@&. they dont like to help others out. so i figured i was out for the weekend. that night a freind and i came up with the idea of tracing the pieces of the brace onto a losi 8 chassis and cutting it out with a dremel. so sunday morning i was on a mission and got the car back up and running. it was a proud moment. i got in 1 qualifier and Bqed. Then bumped into the A. ended up 4th overall after triple a mains so it was a descent weekend.. the only handling charecteristic i cant seem to come to grips with the car is that it turns in really well but once i get back on the throttle (rolling on the throttle)and put more steering input into the car it tends to want to loop out, it doesnt happen everytime time which makes me not be able to get off the corners with confidence. i'm running the cody king sidewinder setup with 5/5/5 diff oils. if anyone has had this issue or has a idea to help me out i would really appreciate it, sorry for such a long post but racing this car makes me very excited and i wanted to share that story.
