tapered side goes away from the cap, toward the cartridge

The Tki3 is as easy to work on as the Losi which is great, the Tki3 handles all types of tracks really easily with minimum setup changes. The Tki3 comes with everything you need in the kit. The Losi you need to buy extra bits

In terms of wear I would say the plastics are on par, it may lean in favour of the K car. But only just.

You wont be unhappy with the Tki3

+1. I also came from an 8B and 8T 2.0's. With the 8's I was concerned w/ the rear coming out or the "twitchy-ness" causing me to concentrate on side-to-side corrections as much as I was concerned with going fast in a straight line. The MP9 slowed down the race for me b/c of its stability (eliminating side-to-side concerns) and enabled me to focus on going fast in a straight line. Truly point and shoot.

Also, the shocks absorb EVERYTHING.

Difficult to explain in words and the best suggestion is to find someone who will let you wheel their MP9 for a couple of laps. The downside is after those couple of laps, you'll end up replacing all your Losi stuff w/ Red Army gear.

There's really no wrong way to shim a diff, it's all based on manufacturing tolerances. Just don't make them too tight or too loose and you should be good to go.

I've tried different oils before, I settled on 6/4/4, but I didn't like this as much as 5/5/3 (what I run everywhere now). So no, I really don't switch fluids, it's just nicer to rebuild a bunch of diffs at once then swap in fresh ones during a rebuild.

I really think that's a loaded question that's going to depend entirely on how you drive, the track you drive on, and how often you race and replace/rebuild components. Any rc car takes a ton of punishment, especially in long mains. If you err on the side of caution and replace parts before they get too worn, you'll be less likely to have more severe and costly issues. Going into a big race, I tend to go in with as many new components as possible, with maybe a tank on them just to shake them down. I figure that if I'm going to a race for several days and spending upwards of $50 on entry fees alone, I'm not going to chance a used clutch spring, plastic, etc over the length of an event. I mean, anything can happen and I'm not afraid of the durability of anything in the MP9, it's just I'd rather be on the safe side.

I looked his buggy over and found that he was running the center diff spacers to lift the center diff up. Took those out and no problems with mesh again
That's interesting...I've run before without the spacers, but I added the spacers recently and didn't notice my mesh change. I actually like the spacers as they raise the spur gear above the bottom line of the chassis, and I've noticed my spur gears have substantially less chips on the ends of the teeth than they did before.

I ran OS before and this is definitely the trick . Smelly's talking about the fixed flat plate closest to the rear center driveshaft that the engine mount block slides on - just give it a little chamfer for some added clearance. Also make sure your gears aren't too worn.

nice input sean, better to be proactive rather than reactive maintenance, which addresses such problems only when they surface and will lead you into more expensive repairs.

I thought its a new kyosho buggy man!

It's just a prototype but strange to be using other brand parts for your prototype.
