I never drove a 777 to compare them. The difference you probably see is the price of the parts. One thing you will find in common is the body will fit both.

Default Diffrence in cars

As you now Kyosho is a great company and the 777 is a very good car,I can give you a very good comparison the SX8 09 is a lighter more responsive version.

Are parts quality is second to noun and our price is for the working man

How quickly do parts ship out? My lhs does not carry any TQ stuff. So any thing I break I will have to order. I actually had not even seen a TQ till acouple of days ago and it looked good with a lot of goodies on it but I still have to wait till the the guy is done making his prototype parts till I can actually get my hands on it.

My car is a solid as a rock, the most reliable 8th scale I have ever owned, part wear is very minimal, and part quality is fantastic, the best I have seen.

Give us the number to your local shop and we will give them a call,Rc Procenter ships daily so there should be no problem getting what you need,along with stormer hobbies.

If he has the 09 car, I cant see what he is adding the car comes loaded i will post pictures of the 09 kit later.

Thanks Dave I am glad you are doing so well with the cars.

chill--the truggy build it coming along nicely, I should be done tom. or sat. i will get pics for everyone on here and also post what the build was like.

It definately looks cool, i sent the body to my paint guy and he is painting me a custom flame job that should be killer.

Can't make the race next weekend, we have our Georgia Championship race next weekend, but thanks for the invite.

Luther-- i am placing an order tonight, i need this for the truggy build. the ones your sent me last week i had to use this a past weekend on my old car( stripped the screw holes out).

Thanks

We ran for both Kyosho and O'Donnell and what my son loves about the SX8 is it turns. We have been fighting engine gremlins but everywhere we have been racing other drivers have been very impressed with how it looks on the track. From a mechanical end the car is as strong as any thing else out there.

well got my buggy ready to go again after a motor change. Here is a couple pic's. The body is not that great but they just get bashed racing anyway!





Anyone have probs with air in the lines? I have had alot of probs and had changed out the lines many times and removed the fliter and still had air coming from the tank. Well working on the buggy today I removed the small silver outlet from the tank. There is very little threads holding this piece in so be very carful putting it back in. All I did was add some ca to the treads and reinstalled the nipple. Also added ca to the threads on the flitter. So far there is no air in the lines.

P.S Thanks again for the stickers Doc!!!!
