Well it is now freed up. But there is a ticking noise coming from the car as it rolls. Everything is free but it's making a noise now. Toy cars can really get to you!

If you can't find what is doing it visually, it's most likely in the diffs. Again, with run time it will wear in and they will mesh to each other. And yes, yes they can. lol

Center diff cups touching brake pads is most likely the case.

No. Just use the 91mm .. on the nitro I have never popped the 91mm out. Now some people have in the front and then use the 93.

Are Kyosho MP9's really worth the extra money ?

The kit price is more expensive than any other buggy....but does this really mean better quality ?

8 World championships -

In all seriousness, please look at it like this aswell, Compare what other cars come with... the TKI3 comes with Alloy rear hubs, alloy front upper plate, alloy upper centre plate and quite literly the best diffs and defently the best drive train.

The tki3, comes with THE BEST out of the box best drivability - This is why even pros dont change much from standerd setup - how many "things" have mugen already alterd just to keep up. losi already drilling more holes and altering.

Kanai built the Mp9 platform in the words of - Build it once, build it right.
and the Tki3 is just to make the best car... better.

Anybody with any brains would buy a MP9 TKI3 and be done with all the other brand "problems and issues"

and just to sum it up... theres a reason other brands are using genuine kyosho performance parts to increase performance and durability........

I have broke more parts on my TKi3 in two weeks than I did on my RC8 in a year and a half... I wouldn't call it a durable 8th scale. Its probably one of the more fragile ones actually, at least as far as front arms are concerned. There are a few other rather lame things about the platform / kit in general but nothing too bad.

It is, however, a very very good race car and I am glad I jumped ship.

What is the process on that actually? I have been meaning to look it up, even prior to me running the car

all i did was get a decent size pot of water on the stove top. turn heat to half put the parts in(i did every part i thought i should) let her slowly boil away for 20-30mins, make sure you stir them every 5 mins and turn them around within the water not letting them come out. then turn heat off and move pot... keeping parts in the water untill cool

i havnt broken anything in 2 full race days and one practice session. i've had some pretty big impacts...

The idea behind this is when nylon is heated within water the nylon takes on water particles... softening the plastic.. making them a bit more flexable... the a-arm being so stiff is anther reason why this car performs so well.
