Kyosho Inferno MP9 TKI2 is no Longer in Production Click here for the NEW Inferno MP9 TKI3
Race the buggy that made Cody King the 2010 IFMAR Worlds Champion! The same buggy that has race results all over the world that rival every other 8th scale nitro buggy produced on the planet!
Cody and Paul King (Cody’s Dad and master mechanic) along with the Inferno MP9’s designer Yuuichi Kanai 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 at the Worlds in Thailand due to the improved handling with the change in weight balance. It is recommended, but not necessarily to add this option part and take advantage of this change KYOIFW423 Kyosho Inferno MP9 WC Forward Battery Mount.
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 is made entirely in Japan.
Also, don’t 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!

Large 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 mains
- The entire car and all its parts are completely manufactured in Japan to improve consistency in quality.
- Only 7075 aluminum is used
- Specially designed 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 brand!
- 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 weight drivetrain
- 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
- Smaller Bulkheads
- 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 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 competition!
