This is from my maiden voyage with the MP9 TKI3, It had been raining al morning so the track was really soft and slippy. But it was great to get the feel of the car. So now its not so new any more This weekend coming I hope to get to a track that is in good shape.

Well I am back from the FEMCA asian championships at Pattaya. Great event. Won by Kyle with the MP9 and Wataru came in third with the MP9. The Car was great there.

I got to rebuild my car on saturday with the legend Kanai as he had flown in to support us. Prior to the semi we rebuilt my car totally and I thought I would share a few tips I got from the master.

1. When building the diffs smear the grubscrew that seals the housing in grease so it seals perfectly.
2. Before you build the diff take the plastic half and you will see that its got a circular line where the outdrive bearing meets the plastic case. On both inside and outside seal this with a drop of CA and run it around the join line
3. Kanai smeared the diff gasket in grease to form a perfect seal also
4. Use a small amount of shoe goo when installing the side plates to the chassis, this keeps out water if/when you clean the car
5. With a sharp x-acto blade you remove a tiny amount of plastic from the inner edge of the steering rod ends. Kanai had the knife at a 45 degree angle when doing this and removed probably 1mm all the way around. The ball popped in nice and easy when this was done.
6. When we built shocks he did not fill them all the way to the top, probably about 3-4mm from the top. doing this we bled less oil and the rebound was perfect each time.

thats about all we did that was different to a normal build.

enjoy

totally forgot to ask.

I have never had one break and I did not see one break all week. and I have never experienced a track with grip like pattaya had last week. way more grip than the worlds in 2010.

the new HD center shafts are really nice, and Kanai had the 93mm HD front shafts for us also as a precaution

As Ben said what a great FEMCA event put on by Charlie very professional and the parts support from Kanai was fantastic good job Kyosho! with the high grip most of us run setups we never experienced before I think we all can say we had great cars at this event and big congratulations to Kyle and Scott McBride on back to back FEMCA Championships

The track sadly isnīt run on that much anymore, but there is a new one getting built not so far from it. The car looks great, feels great, it was a blast to drive it even if the track was awful.

Iīm hoping for a rain free weekend coming up, and that I find some time to get to a better track!

For that type of surface I have a set of Medial Pro Turbo Rats that work pretty good and act as lawn mowers too .Tracks like that are the norm around me so you have to bring a set of grass tires and then when it's just dirt is so compact that you can almost run slicks.

O another thing I want to improve on my K,the brakes are not linear,they're too strong now and can't use EXPO.Using 10mm of fuel tube,should use springs instead?

We kept having outdrive issues until we were told to use the 93mm shaft. Since we changed, no more issues...
