Leadfinger is proud to offer a new option for the Kyosho MP9 nitro buggy, that will aid in set up and allow you to attack the track with confidence. The team at LFR has come together to help design the new Assassin body completely from scratch.

After some more work and fine tuning the BittyDesign boys Davide & Stefano have finally perfected their FORCE body for JQ Products’ White Edition buggy and showed it to us at the EURO Contest – as we wrote during the ASIA Contest the updated body has been remodelled from the Yellow edition to fit the new car’s new dimensions and spec whilst still providing the same performance and looks.
‘THE’ main areas receiving the treatment being the throttle servo linkage area, ensuring that there is room for the linkage to work without scratching the body as well as the re-worked sidepods, not to mention the mud guards are now also available with the body.
The Force style of cab forward bodies aid aero with gains in corner entry stability as well as rear sidepod ‘scoops’ to ensure a planted rear end.
Expect the body to be shipped to distributors and available worldwide within the next couple of weeks.
