Just finished building my TKI3. Must say, has to be the worst instructions manual and setup sheets of all the modern buggies i have built.

Guess i will run in the diffs and re-shim them tomorrow, just a very slight notch on them.

Just found the need to buy more front a-arms. I did some research in this thread about boiling the plastic parts and it seems that it was recommended a few hundred pages ago. Is that still the consensus?

The latest WC front arms are better but not indestructable. Also the 777 arms can be made to fit, I haven't done it but Jerome Agoine from France has done it. The 777 arms are strong as. Both my son and I raced 777 since they came out until they were replaced by the MP9 and we never broke a front arm, broke everything around them but never the arm.

Default Conversion question

I'm looking to convert my TKi2 for the winter.

Which conversion kit should I use?

Kyosho or Tekno?

Thanks for any advice.

I've used these Losi Droop Screw "strikes" on several different chassis. They will usually last longer than your chassis, but if not, they are replaceable. You'll just need to drill and tap for #4-40 thread where the droop screws make contact with your chassis then screw them in from the top side of the chassis with some red loctite.

Using spacers in your shocks to limit downtravel as a replacement for droop screws is a very bad idea in 1:8 scale IMO. This method is common for 1:10 scale but it puts too much stress on the shocks in 1:8. You could possibly use shock limiters in addition to droop screws (although I wouldn't) to control your droop settings. Either way you should always set your droop so the load is on the droop screws and not your shocks.

Hey guys,
A small question here! Are the rear hubs that come with the TKI3 kit the +2mm ones?
I have the +2mm on my TKI2 with 93 shafts
Now am building my new TKI3 and also put the 93 shafts but they seem to be sittin deeper in the outdrive than my other MP9 !!!
Cheers
Ali

HaHa one day hopefully not too far in the future Kyosho will do the right thing by us poor MP9 owners and start making 92mm axles. I reckon they would make massive sales for the item if they did.
