I put an MP9 body on mine. Had to do a lot of trimming (it was pre-cut). I have to kinda stretch the body over the guards to fit properly. It was only like $10 from Amain when I got. Looks a lot better than the beater that came with it.

From what I've seen, they appear to be completely different mounts on the chassis.

I've got two custom painted 777 bodies that were never used.
One is SP1, the other SP2.
Pm if you are interested.

I had a stock mp9 body on my 777 and it fit pretty well. You just have to trim the areas different. The engine is more forward on the MP9. I'm going to be looking into something new that gets the engine better airflow. Right now I'm using an mp777 body because I sold the 9 body with a used MP9 I recently sold.

You can still get JConcepts MP777 bodies though.

I will be trying a MP9 body on a 7.5K2,maybe a little trimming on the sideguards will be enough or else 777 sideguards are narrower and will use those.

Proline just came out with a Bulldog body for the MP9. Some creative trimming and it will fit the 777

I have an MP-777 SP1 converted to electric and I need a body for it. I bought a JConcepts Finnisher body for the MP9 and there was no way I could fit it while still making it look half decent in my eyes......If anyone has a custom painted body they would like to sell, pm me.
