Following the release of the Inferno MP10 Nitro Buggy, Kyosho have introduced the new MP9e Evo Readyset E-buggy. Based on the competition-level MP9e Evo kit, this Readyset package represents excellent performance and value. While maintaining the exceptional flat maneuverability and aerial control of the previous model, the new chassis layout of the MP9e Evo shows improved balance for even greater control. The aero body has been designed specially for this electric racing buggy to enhance critical elements such as steering, traction and rough track performance. At the heart of the MP9e Evo is the new Kyosho Speed House brushless motor and ESC. This factory-finished Readyset package contains nearly everything needed to hit the track, all you need to add is a charged battery to the chassis and batteries for the transmitter.

Kyosho teases a new 1/8 nitro buggy?

See: Kyosho America

For several months Kyosho has been very active and has unveiled many kits including the RB7, ZX7, MP9 TKI4 ReadySet and Inferno MP9e Evo but nothing to delight fans who love the smell of nitro. For many years now, the famous MP9 TKI has enabled Kyosho to win several titles as the Japanese brand’s flagship model has evolved. The demand for an MP10 is not new, but so far Kyosho seemed to want to make the most of the potential of a buggy that has still managed to reach the 2018 Worlds final.

Kyosho has posted a video showing what could be the MP10 and although at the moment nothing can indicate if this is really the case, Yuichi Kanai’s signature is not insignificant. The time for change has finally come? To be continued….
