Kyosho have unveiled the Electric version of the Inferno MP9 TKI4, the MP9e TKI4. The Kyosho’s E-Buggy is based on his Nitro brother who took the TQ at the IFMAR 1/8 World Championship in Las Vegas. It inherits the same qualities as the INFERNO’s flat controllability, superior airborne posture and great agility through optimal mass concentration and lower center of gravity. Shared components from the new MP9 TK14 design such as longer front sus arms, front sus holder, front shock stay, rear wing and wing stay also realize increased compatibility on low through to high grip surfaces to meet the individual demands of each driver. This design update not only delivers improved running performance but also the essential elements for racing victory in the form of a complete revision for improved maintenance efficiency and higher durability.

Kyosho have introduced the new evolution of their Lazer ZX6, the ZX6.6. The new ZX6.6 is designed to meet the increased demands of the modern racing scene for more power and higher grip. While maintaining the control response and maneuverability the ZX6 is renowned for, the ZX6.6 has undergone a minor model change to keep its leading edge in racing performance. For increased traction and stability on high grip surfaces, the optional aluminum HD main chassis is included as standard. Changes around the center gear from the slipper clutch to the diff realize smooth traction on all road surface conditions for superior surface tracing and control characteristics. In addition, the introduction of the gullwing type rear sus arms from the Ultima RB6.6 allows longer shock stroke for improved surface tracing through corners and performance over surface gaps. These changes combine to lift the overall performance and result in a improved total balance of the machine. Available in November.
