The front upper arms are great as I got sick of the plastic ones getting sloppy after a few races or after one crash.
Should be a proper A arm, the inner pivot of the arm is too short and the hole stretches out too easily but with the King Headz arms this is no longer a problem.
One side effect of the ally upper arms are that the pin can bend but only after a bad crash and it hasn't caused a dnf so all good I think. I have set the upper arm in the centre of the pin and I have not bent a pin since.

The engine mount is not needed IMO and it makes the chassis too stiff. Our chassis' do get a mark from the bell but we almost never have flameouts so I'm not worried about that at all.

The clutch shoes look ok but the Kyosho ones are easy to remove and refit so if the KH are as easy to remove and fit then go for it IMO.

Tracked it through USPS this morning...

So it looks like as of this morning it's in customs in Miami. That's definitely a relief. Hopefully only a few days now.

I run 5/7/3 and love it. I was running 5/5/3 and was also good. Just depends on how I'm feeling that race day.

Sid the front upper arms arent that bad i have ran mine all season. They have a little wobble to them but not much. The main thing i see replacing are the inserts the holes do wobble out

I have nothing to do with this guy or sale, but seems like a great deal. If I still raced 8th buggy, I would have already bought it.

Yeah I think those are Kyosho light blue springs. There are a lot of Pro's out there running those springs.

Well winter is almost over us here in Sweden and itīs time for my first tear down of my MP9tki3 buggy. So I have a bearings question, how long do you run them before changing? if they are smooth as butter= donīt change? or change anyway as the car is tore down?

And do you run Kyosho bearings or should I change to some ceramic, steel or rubber shielded bearings, from other companies like Avid, Acer or Boca?
