;at’s not a
printed-on signature. Yuichi Kanai
signs all the Spec
A buggy boxes so
that you know he
had his hands on
your actual car.
;at’s pretty cool!
Durable Dish Wheels
;e new wheels used on the MP9 TKI4 features a tapered-face design to make them more durable, which is what you
want during a long race. ;e wheels also feature ribbing on
the inside to further strengthen the face. ;e tire-mounting
surface has been roughed up to increase its surface area and
do a better job of giving the tire glue some grip. A small rib on
the face of the wheel provides some protection for the wheel
nut so that it doesn’t get damaged by any hits on the track.
Updated Wing and Mount
;e molded wing used on the MP9 TKI4 has been
updated with two additional vertical ribs, which make the
buggy more stable over jumps according to Kyosho. Two
removable gurney flaps to allow you to fine-tune the wing
according to conditions. ;e wing mount has also been
updated and now includes wider pads to do a better job of
supporting the wing. You can adjust the height and angle of
the wing thanks to several holes in the wing mount.
;e Spec A version of the MP9 TKI4 comes
just as you see it here—built by professionals and signed o ; by Yuichi Kanai before it is
put in the box.
PRO-BUILT & KANAI APPROVED
Kyosho o;ers the MP9 TKI4 two ways: a standard
you-build-everything kit, and an assembled
“Spec A” model (as tested here). Spec A cars are
built on a dedicated line by technicians trained
specifically for competition prep. After assembly,
the Spec A cars go to legendary Inferno designer
and former IFMAR World champ Yuichi Kanai for
inspection. Once approved, Yuichi literally signs
o; on the build with his signature on the box, and
it’s ready for the engine, electronics, tires, and
paint of your choice.
