Default kyosho replacement parts

So i noticed that the majority of my replacement parts needed for my mp9 readyset nitro buggy is all on back order. kyosho america, a main, infernos only, ebay. Is this a common thing for kyosho? maybe its the amount of people buying right now? or is it because the new mp10 is out and parts are no longer being made for the tki4? or at least tki4 specific stuff. how long does kyosho manufacture replacement parts for previous models? looking for front optional knuckles/hubs and king pin. KYOIF488 - gunmetal ,KYOIF467- long kin pin .

Basically what should i expect with replacement parts with a older version of kyoshos mp series 1/8th scale nitro buggy? ex. tki4 parts just slowly go out of stock and become unavailable ? or does kyosho continue to produce parts for roughly the standard time?

Kyosho as a whole is struggling to fulfill demand due to the current situation, so you're kinda out of luck. Parts should be available for an incredibly long time, seeing that the mp9 was made for almost 10 years.

the best way is to get put on the waiting list. go to kyosho America. find your part number and click on the "put me on the waiting list" once the part comes in stock you will get an email. this also tells them that people are wanting this part and should get ordered faster to be back in stock. its kind of like a grocery store. the popular items may have 50-100 in stock or ordered. the less popular will get 5-10 items ordered in and that makes those parts sell out faster.
