The Inferno MP9 WC kit was a Limited Edition kit and is no longer available. Please order the KYO317858 Inferno MP9 TKI2 kit instead as it is now the current version of the car.
The Kyosho Inferno MP9 TKI2 WC
you can own and race the same 1:8th
scale buggy that took Team Kyosho International
(TKI) driver Cody King to victory at the 2010 World Championship race
in Thailand. The new “WC” edition Inferno MP9 includes all the upgrades made to
the MP9 for the Worlds race.
The track in
Pattaya Thailand was an incredibly hostile and tough with concrete takeoff and
landing areas on jumps as well as gangly welded iron fences lining the track. At
the Worlds warm up race it took its toll on most the buggies that competed.
Changes had to made to most manufactures cars deal with the exceptionally
difficult conditions just to be sure that the buggies could finish an hour long
main. Even though the Kyosho Inferno
MP9 TKI2 buggies had no major failures at the warm up race, they decided to
update some parts and give them out to all the team drivers for the World Race
just to be sure. The inferno MP9 WC Edition includes these strengthened and
revised parts for you to add to your ability to win. Check the list below
listing the new parts and changes that have been made.
Cody and Paul King
(Cody’s Dad and master mechanic) along with the Inferno MP9’s designer
found that it also helped to move the receiver battery from the stock location
on the Inferno MP9 TKI2 to a forward position and made modifications to
accommodate this change. This was adopted by Cody King and most the Kyosho team
drivers as well in Thailand due to the improved handling with the change in
weight balance. The Inferno MP9 WC Edition kit also includes the new parts
needed to replicate this setup change.
Along with all the other improvements
recently made to the TKI2 edition Inferno MP9, this is the most advanced 1:8th
scale buggy ever produced! Kyosho and
Yuuichi Kanai’s Infernos have
won the 1:8th scale off road buggy Worlds 8 times, many more times
than any other manufacturer.
Kyosho’s commitment to the
serious RC racer with
a no cost, no holds barred attitude, have always paid off! Using the best
materials available in the world along with incredible engineering and fit and
finish, you will not find a more committed group of people behind you as an
owner of an Inferno than the group from Kyosho!
The Inferno MP9 THI2 WC is made entirely
forget that the Inferno MP9 TKI2 also won
the 2010 ROAR Nationals driven by Kyosho Team driver
Jared Tebo as well as TQ’d the Worlds
in Thailand also driven by Jared Tebo!

Side guards that wrap around
the car for more protection from hits and dirt. There is another feature built
into the side guards that we will find out about later!
Steering link on the inside
of the chassis
Steering servo squeezed into
the center of the chassis
Nylon locking wheel nuts
Maximum durability with
specially selected, high quality materials
Diameter Center Differential
To improve consistency in
long mains the center differential has been increased in size by 5mm.
This increases the internal
oil volume and helps the differential maintain consistency in 1 hour or longer
The entire car and all its
parts are completely manufactured in Japan to improve consistency in quality.
Only 7075 aluminum is used.
no-compromise composite plastics are used in the Inferno MP9. These composites
are what make the Kyosho models stand out from the crowd and have been
formulated over decades for maximum strength and durability.
Same goes with all the
metals in the MP9 they have years of development behind them to ensure maximum
performance and usable life.
A Kyosho may be more
expensive to purchase in the front end but, due to the long life of components
and durability of the design, the cost of ownership is much less than any other
Ultra-Light weight drive
train components improve the responsiveness and crispness of throttle and brake
inputs; this is the lightest, and strange enough, the most durable drive train
available on a buggy today.
The smallest and most
consistent differentials available in a 1:8th buggy, add to the light
The Differential outdrives
are now lightened by machining and drilling them.
The Drive shafts are are
made from lighter thinner and stronger Chrome Molly steel.
Differentials have been
lowered in the chassis.
Overall the drive train is
over 200g lighter than the Inferno MP777!
With all the information covered here, it should be quite obvious that the new
Kyosho Inferno MP9 TKI2 World Championship Edition is the State of the Art 1/8th
buggy today, and has the heritage and capability to take Cody King or
you to the highest level of
about 28 mm
