+1 on that! A friend who run Hara D8 just got his TKI3 today! After trying out MP9 on the track, he fall in love with it!

But saying this, what some of the guys here say here is true, having access to parts locally might be a good idea. I don't know if I'm lucky or not, but buying the parts locally and overseas does not cost much different for me, sometime I get cheaper buying overseas.

I don't know if buying 2nd kit for spare is a good idea. Usually the parts that break often are the lower arms, upper arms, wing stay, wings, body shell and front bumper.

Don't get me wrong I'm not saying MP9 break easily, I'm just saying all you need to keep for spares are those items. The only time I broke anything on MP9 is the front lower arm but that is due to my bumpy track and at full speed hit a bump and hit a tree straight! I'm actually surprised the only broken part is the right lower arm! the rest are all ok.

PS: I saw a friend XB9 and honestly, I'm not impress with it at all. Mugen might be a better one than that. Just my personal opinion. Please don't kill!

Easy to work on and stays consistent no matter how the track changes.. Nothing wrong with the list of cars you mentioned there all high quality kits. Good luck!
