For many years the MP9 was at the pinnacle of 1/8 engine racing buggies. Having inherited that DNA, the MP10 embodies a new generation, re-engineering across the machine with the TKI2 model representing this continued evolution to write another chapter in the storied history of the Inferno series. About 1 year has passed since the release of the Inferno MP10. Based on rigorous test data from actual racing, the TKI2 has been modified to fine-tune it for a performance improvement. Front and rear shock stays have been lengthened together with the actual shocks to improve the suspension, especially from jumps to landings. In addition to reinforced shock caps and pistons equipped with 5 x 1.5 holes as standard (previously optional), improvements to various other parts have enhanced the performance across the chassis. A completely new body design improves aerodynamics for sharper handling characteristics. Of course body selection is a setting option, so the previous body design can also deliver optimal performance depending on course conditions. With a combination of newly designed components and race-proven optional parts included as standard, the new TKI2 promises world-class performance that will exceed expectations.
Body takes the high-level aerodynamic characteristics of the MP10 body in a more aggressive direction. The feeling of lightness through the corners is enhanced, which greatly contributes to faster lap times, especially on more technical circuits.
Revised gearing results in changes to the teeth of the ring and pinion gears to reduce the secondary reduction ratio from the MP10’s 3.31:1 to the TKI2’s 3.5:1. This delivers improved acceleration characteristics and response to the driver's throttle inputs for superior maneuverability.
With changes to the reduction ratio, the standard 46T spur gear in the MP10 kit has been changed to 45T. The final reduction ratio is 12.1:1, which places a greater emphasis on acceleration and achieves improved pickup. Different gear settings are also available with optional parts.
The front and rear shocks are 3mm longer than the standard MP10 with 4mm longer front shafts and 3mm longer rear shafts. Springs have been lengthened accordingly. Front length of 78 mm and the rear length of 95 mm provide superior shock absorption through the full suspension stroke.
Increased wall thickness reinforces shock caps and ball housing dramatically improves strength. The shock cap is specific for a diaphragm shock set up and guarantees stable damping force even through endurance races.
In combination with the longer shocks, the preiously optional shock towers are now equipped as standard and provide optimimal mounting positions. Suspension stroke can be increased for improved stability and running performance over bumpy tracks and large jumps.
Rear arm shape has been modified for the longer shocks to prevent interference with the spring retainer when the suspension is at full droop. This provides optimal suspension stroke.
With the longer rear shocks, towers, and revised rear arms, optimal droop is acheived, providing a smoother feel on rough tracks and large jumps.
