Default Kyosho MP-6

Question for you Kyosho Buggy experts-will the shock stays from the Inferno GT fit my MP-6? Thanks, Don

No Kyosho expert, But have owned a Inferno GT and the shock towers on it were shorter than the buggies. But yes they will fit, it will just make a low-rider out of your MP6.
Might want to wait on a better reply before you buy them

Thanks! The idea is to turn it into a GT-street. Like an Inferno GT or an Ofna DM-1. Don

That will work, if you want a 2 speed center like the GT has you will have to make the hole in the chassis for the spur gear bigger. and don't forget the body mounts.

I just sold my Inferno GT and let a extra MP6 sports buggy go with it for parts.
I used Revo shocks on it, MUCH better than stock, you will need a shorter shock to go onroad, the buggy ones are too long.

That makes sense at the rear-could I use 2 sets of fronts? Don

I think front buggy shocks are still longer than GT shock, I can't remember.
You can find Revo shocks cheap on ebay, I just sold a new set for $20

Well I got the parts in. The Inferno GT shock stays won't fit the MP-6.(Phooey!!!) Does anyone know if the transmission cases with the closer mounts(to fit the Inferno GT shock stays) will fit my MP-6? Thanks, Don
