Kyosho MP9 Standard Edition

The Verdict is in, Kyosho drivers love the Inferno MP9 SE
Here are some of the comments drivers and mechanics alike have been making:
"The SE car was easy to build and has the updated parts in it. I was impressed with the quality of the kit too" - PK (Paul King) Mechanic

"Drive the car back to back with the Team International Edition and you can't notice a difference, the car is just as amazing as the Team Edition!" - Driver

"Get the kit and drive it before you contemplate purchasing the Team upgrades, it's that good!"- Driver

"This car is on par or better with any other car on the market" - Driver


The most successful chassis in history now available in a standard edition. Same MP9 performance with an unbelievable price! Advanced components create a synergy of pure performance. With 7 World Championship victories, the most successful racing buggy that the world has ever seen has undergone its first full model change for the 21st Century. Everything down to the last ball-end has been recreated with the focus on maximum speed and performance in a completely new chassis and body development. Overall weight balance compliments the lightweight chassis that covers setting options for all inputs to lateral running characteristics.



Just like all the previous MP series of Infernos, the Inferno MP9 has been designed by Yuichi Kanai, the most ingenious designer of 1/8th scale 4wd buggies in the world as demonstrated by the racing results over the years in RC.

The MP9 is designed to be a uncompromised competition 1/8th scale buggy. Here is some of the design criteria Yuuichi Kanai used for the MP9's development:

  • He started with lowering the overall mass of the drive train and chassis. Weight reduction on the drive train alone has resulted in 200g of reduced rotating mass over the MP777 WC. This has enhanced the acceleration, lowered the Center of Gravity as well as improved overall handling for the buggy.
  • Centering and redistributing the mass on the chassis to improve on the MP777 series of cars. The result has been improved dynamic handling over the MP777 series of buggies which translates into more aggressive and responsive handling characteristics. Cornering speed has also been improved by the changes. The engine has been moved forward 15mm and moved toward the center by 4mm.
  • The completely new suspension geometry work hand in hand with the improved mass distribution, weight reduction, lower C.G. and improved chassis dynamics creating a better accelerating, jumping and turning buggy.
  • Improving the aerodynamics was also high on the priority list. A new body and wing were designed using a wind tunnel. This has resulted in a body and wing combination that provides optimum aerodynamics when airborne and efficiency when flying down high speed straightawayfs.  Improving the stability of the car is yet another achievement for the aerodynamic design.


  • Ultra Low C.O.G- Ultra low center of gravity, lightweight and optimal weight balance all combine to deliver the ultimate racing weapon.
  • New Body Design- Newly developed body is slimmer and lower in height to realize aerodynamic characteristics for powerful down force and stability.
  • More Down Force- Bolted on large wing generates powerful down force. New ribbing at the back results in improved rigidity.
  • Composite Torque Rods- Roll center can be adjusted by changing the direction of the spacer inserted into the lower arm of the rear suspension. Also, the one-piece ball and washer ball-ends are an added maintenance feature.
  • Upright Servo- Servo is mounted upright for easy maintenance and is dropped 2mm to contribute to the lower center of gravity.
  • Extremely Light Weight- The smaller differential units on front and rear with grooved cup joints, aluminum balls and the flexing shape of resin parts effectively lightens the weight while giving the chassis rigidity, more durability and strength.
  • New Fuel Tank- Newly designed fuel tank features finger hook for fast and reliable refueling and realizes stable fuel supply in even under severe posture changes.
  • Wraparound Side Guards- Grooved face in side guard matches the thickness of velcro tape and prevents dirt getting inside the chassis. Complete wraparound side guards only found on Kyosho MP9.
  • Equipped With Mud Guards- Mud guards on the rear arm prevent dirt entering the drive shaft and getting inside the wheels.
  • We Have You Covered- 3 types of servo horn included for various R/C systems (SANWA / KO / for JR, FUTABA and Hitech)
  • Hex Screws- Kit includes all hex screws enough said!
  • Weight Balance- Engine position moved 15mm forwards and 5mm to the center compared to the MP777. Also the height has been lowered by 1mm for ideal weight balance.
  • New Suspension Design- Newly developed suspension uses bushing for easy maintenance and rationalizes the setting order.
  • Increased Diff Case Capacity- Center differential realizes improved heat dissipating brake disc and increased case capacity for stable control through to the end of the race.
  • Optimal Race Settings- Fine tune for the optimal race setting with adjustments to wheelbase, tread, roll center, caster angle, toe angle and camber change.
  • 3 Differentials = Real Time 4WD- Features the Inferno's signature shaft-driven 3-differential full time 4WD chassis.
  • Same Kyosho Quality- The New Inferno MP9 Standard Edition is crafted with the same attention to detail as all previous Infernos. Proudly manufactured in Japan, same MP9 performance with a new unbelievable price!
