Rumours about a possible new Kyosho 1/8th nitro buggy are around for some time, and now things started to materialise as the follow-up model of the successful MP9 TKI3 seems to be around the corner following the appearance of a first image including a features sheet on the Asian website rcfans.com. Still being an MP9 series vehicle, with all its winning pedigree, the TKI4 will be more of an evolution than a revolution of the existing design and according to the information available so far the buggy will feature redesigned steering knuckles with a different steering Ackermann setting, longer front A-arms and redesigned front suspension mount, all of which lead to improved stability and easier vehicle control. Also new are longer and reinforced rear wishbones as well as aluminium rear hubs that allows the adjustment of the suspension shaft height for a wider setup window. The successor of the 2015 European Championship winning car is rounded out by an upgraded servo saver for more linear and precise steering input, a new bodyshell with improved aerodynamics and a newly designed rear wing with two different wickerbills. Shipping of the MP9 TKI4 will start in March.
