Those of origin, strengthened and CVD. Which do you think it will be best for me? CVD not seem right?
Thank you for your help.

PS: Sean, congratulations for your fantastic race.
Umm... you've missed a few there mate. One can run the orginal thinner universals, the thicker HD universals, original diameter captured unis and finally the thicker HD captured unis. Phew!

Best ones to run are A) whichever you can find cheapest or B) whichever you think makes your car handle best/easiest to drive or C) a mixture of any of the 4 variables or finally, D) whatever one can get their hands on.

In all serious though, I run the 91mm thicker HD universals in the rear, usually the thicker HD centre captured unis (but gonna try the original style HD centre universals once they arrive in a week or 2) and either the 91mm HD unis or 91mm HD captured unis up front.

Never had any problems with the shafts popping out or bending (yet).

Black grease for the diff out drives .
The white grease in the little blue circular container supplied with all MP9 kits isn't actually any kind of lithium grease. The supplied grease is a teflon grease, not sure what the base is but I 'm pretty sure it isn't lithium.

I dont use that stuff that comes with the kits. I use actual white lithium grease. I've been using it for years in my rigs gearboxes and its great stuff.

AZRC4Me , I saw the results on Neobuggy for the Revelation Winter Nats. Congratulations. I was looking at the equipment that is shown that you run and its listed you are running Orion motors. I was just curious as to what your motor/pipe combo is and your thoughts on it, ie power band, mileage, etc. I am building a new tki3 for this summer and am considering an Orion power plant.

I will send the analysis of the survey to various manufacturer in the hope that they
will improved the 1/8 product based on your feedback.

I thank you all so much for your time. it will take roughly 5 minutes of your time.

below is the link to the survey

The front uni's popping out is by far the most annoying thing that i have come across from any manu...Seems to have come back magically in my buggy again..I will look at the older posts to see what the 'solution of the month' is..I dont want to go aftermarket, but this seems to be the only solution on this forum that someone has not disputed :-)

I just bought a Kyosho MP9 TKI3 (switching from RC8.2). I've read many pages on this thread and it seems that there are complaints about the motor mount.

Any thoughts on the Kingheadz motor mount for the MP9? And could someone post links or part numbers of the Agama mount parts that are working? Thanks in advance.

I have been pretty lucky and have yet to experience this. My only question would be are you running the front end in the wide setting and if so do you run the 93mm axles? I run my tki3 in the wide setting with the standard 91mm axles all has been good.

If you stay after your motor mount screws and apply some thread lock, you will be fine. I have run 20-45 minute mains and when I service my buggy the screws are still torqued down when I try and break them loose. Some have chose to use a different set of mounts which allows them to use longer screws and a lock nut. Ultimately run what makes you the most comfortable.

The 93mm shafts.

I suffered through the popping out issue w/ the EVO and eventually figured out (with some help) that the diff was not centered. This caused one side, in my case the left side as you are looking at it, to cover more of the drive shaft. This meant the right side was "shorter" and therefore susceptible to popping out when the arm was fully extended. I centered the diff, making sure the drive shafts had equal coverage on the left and the right.

Thank you aaron 125 for your information and excuse me if I speak wrong, I'm French and I speak your language badly.

I still have my original car, nothing broken or twisted. But every time I read things about shafts, people break or twist them and use different dimensions: 91mm or 93mm.
I admit that I'm lost.

Sure you havent got the centre outdrives mixed up with the front/rear ones? Or running lots of droop ?

Valid points, but definitely things I (we) checked. A friend was an O'Donnell racer back in the day and had this same issue. Turned out centering the diff was the thing that fixed my "popping out" issues.

They are exactly 1mm taller. I haven't installed mine yet. I have a hole in my chassis. Plan to try them on the next chassis.
