Mar 18, 2014 No Comments by

We just featured the nitro-burning version of Kyosho’s RTR Inferno on our April cover,  and now the electric version is set to hit stores. Orion supplies the brushless power system, which is rated for 4S LiPo, and Kyosho includes the LCD-equipped version of their Synchro 2.4GHz pistol. Full Kyosho hype after the pics.

The world-beating performance of Inferno MP9 TKI is now available in electric power with the launch of the MP9e TKI Readyset. Simply switch ON and feel the power surge with instant acceleration to full speed. With precision control and handling, the MP9e marks a new era in electric buggy performance that is ready to take on any type of course. The TKI (Team Kyosho International) brand marks this MP9e as a fully equipped race spec version with the Inferno’s superior racing performance and wide scope for setting options. Expert racers to beginners can enjoy breathtaking performance on any off-road circuit with this fully pre-assembled Readyset packaged with the 2.4GHz large LCD screen KT-201 transmitter and fast response/high torque KS-401 servo installed. Combined with the powerful Team Orion NEON8 brushless motor, anyone can experience and enjoy the very best electric off-road performance.

Already low C of G characteristics of the GP MP9 buggy are enhanced with an even greater centralization of heavy components to concentrate mass for superior controllability.

Unique structure of the motor mount allows adjustment of backlash or replacement of the motor by loosening two screws from above.

Shock stays with gun metallic finish promise tough performance.

Newly designed body delivers improved aerodynamics for greater controllability.

Rear suspension arms are fitted with mudguards that keep dirt out of drive shafts and wheels. Each section is designed to perform optimally under true race conditions.
