Hey guys,

I've been lurking this thread for months now since I became interested in the MP9 trying to get unsolicited opinions and set up tips. Three weeks ago I finally picked up a used updated, well taken cared of TKi2 almost a TKi3 (I honestly still don't know the difference between the two).

I previously wheeled a Losi 8ight 2.0 and was fairly successful with it. Without sounding as though I'm boasting, I've managed to win a couple of club races and except for a couple of DNF's (due to motor issues) almost always podiumed. 2013 I think I'll be piloting the MP9.

Anyhow, last Sunday I finally put it on the track with the set up as close to stock as possible with what I had. I ran it with black springs in the front and light blue in the rear. Slight push entering corners but I was pleasantly surprised with the handling and performance, I immediately found the suspension handle the rough parts a lot better and made me more consistent and I could push a little harder than with my Losi 8ight 2.0, but even more impressive is its braking prowess... it is so much more consistent and linear.

Second day with it today on the track, I ran it excatly the same except for blue springs all around, the push is gone and this thing wicked. This racing machine is so driveable and responds to driver input without getting out of position.

It came with the 1.2/8 (black) shock pistons and was thinking of going with the 1.3/8 (white) as most guys here are running. My questions are; 1st what is the difference between the black and white pistons. 2nd when would the tapered pistons be beneficial?

I'm really excited with it and I want to thank you guys in advance for your helpful tips and advice with this awesome machine.

Happy and Safe New Year and great racing in 2013 to everyone!

Dang Krash, You look solid with the Kyosho. Glad you finally saw the light and like everyone says, You have to actually drive one to know why we love the MP9 so much. Everyone complains about the price but once they try it, they know right away. I am positive you'll be successful racing the K in 2013. Now you got me all shook up and I have no advantage now!
I also read somewhere that some don't care for the new angled hole pistons. Well today as I was trying to find my set up, I didn't have to touch my oils in the shocks all day. I just built them with 45/35 and felt pretty good as I was only playing with camber and diff oils. I still want to play with the shock oils though as I feel I am still a little off my old set up. But for now, I kinda like the new pistons.
I may want to try the older white, non angled hole pistons though, just to compare.
I'll be piloting a new ride for 2013 but until it gets here, I'll still enjoy my TKI3.
Good luck in 2013, I see a lot of podiums for you soon

Default Pistons

Congrats on the new ride....The stock angled pistons are really made for smooth tracks with bigger jumps, that need alot of pack and little rebound. On a rougher track you will notice the buggy being thrown around alot with the stock pistons...

But if you race on most tracks around the US, that are outdoor tracks, that have all types of jumps, ruts, moguls, you will find the 1.3 x 8 straight hole pistons the best...... they really soak up little bumps and ruts with no problems, they are probably the best all around shock piston.I think a good starting point with the 1.3 x8, is 45ft/ 30r losi oils and adjust from there. Good luck in 2013 with your new ride......

Thanks Mr. Neesh! Your old ride/My new ride is awesome. I can't wait to see your new one, I know whatever it is you'll be fast and everyone will be trying to catch you.

I'm going to try and come down to see you guys and drive yours and John's buggy before I buy mbx7 if that is ok?

I think one guy at Indy has mbx7 have you drove it yet?

Sure thing, Dibbs. Anytime!

I have not driven the 7. No doubt it is a good ride though. The drive train should be a little smoother, but nothing is like a Kyosho drivetrain. I ran the 6 for about 2 years but just feel more connected to C hub car. Just a preference I guess. PBS just feels numb in comparison to me.

Haven't been to Mikes yet but would venture to say my Speed Monkey setup would be good. At Indy I ran 45/ 35 and light blue springs. 45/30 with orange is really good at Speed Monkey. 573 diffs at Indy, and 563 at Speed monkey. That's it, nothing magical. Everything else is King's 2010 worlds setup.

Hey Steve,

I replaced all of mine a few weeks back with some of the standard Hudy 3 x 14mm pins and they've been working flawless so far.
