Kyosho MP9 suspension weights

Kyosho mastermind Yuichi Kanai has released a handful of pictures of suspension weights for the MP9 1/8th buggy in the wake of the upcoming 1/8th nitro buggy World Championships in Argentina. The parts are clamped to the front steering knuckles and rear uprights using set screws. Although automotive textbooks explain that adding weight to unsprung parts such as suspension components is a bad idea pre-Worlds testing revealed that the additional weight may help with one-track performance and drivability. Although the 10g and 15g parts sport a part number it is not clear if they are a one-off for the meeting or if they will hit the stores later.
