1/8 GP 4WD RACING BUGGY

Inferno MP9 TEAM KYOSHO INTERNATIONAL


No.31782   Kit

□Available : 18 Oct 2008

A completely new chassis design regenerates the king of the off-road.
Designed and built without compromise to be the best. No question.

With 7 World Championship victories, the most successful racing buggy that the world has ever seen has undergone a full model change for the 21st Century. Everything down to the last ball-end has been recreated with the focus on maximum speed and performance in a completely new chassis and body development. The light weight of the chassis is complemented by exceptional weight balance that covers setting options for all inputs that affect lateral running characteristics. This allows the Inferno to adapt for optimal performance under changing off-road conditions for an overwhelming advantage in the heat of racing battle. The latest aerodynamic design body and wing realize greater controllability. With AKA tires designed from World Championship winning experience included in the kit, the overwhelming power and performance of the new Inferno MP9 continues to set the benchmark in world buggy racing.

Hard main chassis made from 7075-grade aluminum, hard shock stay, big bore shocks and aluminum knuckle arms give the MP9 its great strength, durability and rigidity.

 

Newly developed chassis is narrower and lower in height to realize the aerodynamic benefits of the new body design that generates more downforce and stability than ever before.

 

Large wing is securely bolted and generates powerful downforce. New ribbing at the back results in improved rigidity and strength.

In addition to the hard anodized shock stays and main chassis, the MP9 features velvet coated shock cylinders. Also, resin torque rods fitted on front and rear contribute to the moderate flexibility and smooth running performance.

 

Roll center can be adjusted by changing the direction of the spacer inserted into the lower arm of the rear suspension. Also, the one-piece ball and washer pivot balls are an added maintenance feature.

 

Servo is mounted upright for easy maintenance and is dropped 2mm to contribute to the lower center of gravity. The hard chrome finish on some metal parts is superior to anodizing.

The smaller differential units on front and rear with grooved cup joints, aluminum pivot balls and the modified shape of resin parts, effectively lightens the chassis weight while providing greater rigidity, durability and strength.

 

Equipped with American ‘AKA’ 1/8 I Beam medium compound buggy tires and new large type wheels as standard. Developed by world champions for big race winning speed on any surface.

 

Newly designed fuel tank features finger hook for fast and reliable refueling and realizes stable fuel supply in even under severe racing conditions.

  • The latest and most formidable version of 7-time World Championship winning Inferno.
  • Optimal distribution of mass, lower center of gravity and lightweight combine to generate the fastest speed in its class.
  • Features the Inferno's signature shaft-driven 3-differential full time 4WD chassis.
  • Fine tune for the optimal race setting with adjustments to wheelbase, tread, roll center, caster angle, toe angle and camber change.
  • Improved heat dissipating brake disc and center differential with increased case capacity produces stable control right through to the finish line.
  • Newly developed suspension uses bushings and eliminates E-rings for easy maintenance and rationalization of setting processes.
  • Engine position moved 15mm forwards and 5mm to the center compared to the MP777. The height has also been lowered by 1mm to deliver ideal weight balance.
  • Stylish hex bolts adopted throughout chassis for greater integrity of parts assembly.
  • 3 types of servo horn included to suit various R/C systems (SANWA / KO / for JR, FUTABA and Hitech)
  • Mud guards on the rear arm prevent dirt entering the drive shaft and getting inside the wheels.
  • Grooved face in side guard matches the thickness of magic tape and prevents dirt getting inside the chassis.
