Default 777 SP1 Vs. Hyper8

Im currently thinking of selling off my Inferno 7.5 RTR and getting a kit. At this point im sick of replacing stuff and for around 450 bucks a kit seems like the way to go. I just cant decide between the Hyper 8 and the 777 SP1. I already have some extra diffs for the kyosho and a few other parts... but I like the no eclip aspect of the hyper 8 and the extra adjustability. But its also very new... what do you guys think??

Do you race? I would go with the 777 sp2 not the sp1 if you go kyosho. They revised it for a reason. As for the hyper 8 I haven't heard anything about it. Get what you want and can afford. I've got a K3 and have been thinking of selling for a mugen prospec. It's what my buddy runs and would be nice to be able to swap parts and talk about setups for the same car. I bet ofna parts would be much easier to come by than kyosho. Another reason I may switch.

I dont race at the moment but I would like to try it out pretty soon. Im tempted to get the SP2 as im having a hard time even finding a SP1. Mostly I'm just sick of reaplacing cheap parts on my 7.5 RTR setup.

The hyper 8 has been doing real well in some races, granted in the hands of Degani and Kortz. But the Kyosho is a proven winner. You can not go wrong with either car. But the hyper 8 is about $200 to $300 cheaper. Leaves you money for a good motor, pipe header, servos etc...

Parts for Kyosho are getting alot easier to obtain as well know with Kyosho America.

Later,

Why are you looking at the SP1 and not the SP2?
It is a tough choice. Both proven winners and both very nice kits. The Kyosho kit will be more expensive but worth the money. Either way, you can't go wrong

Cheers
