Default Inferno MP9 thread

Well Neo Buggy seems to have confirmed it: the new Kyosho nitro buggy will carry-on the INFERNO name, but the MP777 designation is gone and officially known as the MP9.

While it's possible that the car may be seen at the upcoming Shizuoka hobby showthis weekend, it will, in all likelyhood, make its first official appearance at the 10th Kyosho Masters in france in about one month's time.

Well there you go: bag <-- -------> cat

Discuss and be merry!

Er... Yeah. All sarcasm aside, at least we now have a proper name and time of unveiling. I'm curious to see how much of a radical departure (if any) it will be from the current WC. For all I know, the big bores might be one of the only carry-overs.

I love sarcasm.

In all seriousness, I've been told they are changing the aluminum color to green

That's ok, I'm sure the aftermarket guys will have all sorts of blingy colors to choose from.

I'm looking forward to seeing this buggy after all the speculation. I hope it is not just another 8ight clone.

I'd be very interested in seeing this buggy, just to see what Kyosho does with it. 8ight clone? Gil Losi Jr. is with Kyosho America now. Does Gil have any serious input into this new ride?

Whatever Kyosho does with the inferno others will follow. Won't be surprised if Losi's next eight clones the MP9.

Well it's literally just a matter of hours now until the first pics show up. I wonder if Ryan (Lutz) already got a peek of the beast.

If I was a betting man, it will be build similar to the Losi buggy platform. Especially sense Mr. Losi himself is one of there chief designers now.

We're going to see all kinds of neat-o rides and revisions with the World's looming in the near future.

Hopefully it won't be like most Kyosho MP's of yesteryear where you bought the kit and threw most of it away to "upgrade" it.

Jukka designed the eight not gil, I suspect gil is there more for aka and the 1/10th program.
The inferno series is designed by kanai, testers give imput but he is chief
