Default AnyBody still run a Kanai 2 or 3??

Hey guys, i got a good deal offered to me with tones of spare parts so gettting parts will not be the issue. Im just wondering if these buggys are still kicking some A$$ these days, since theres about 1000000 different buggys out there, so if your still running one Speak up and tell me if i should get it or pass!!!

it all depends on how much your getting it for, and how owned it. I ran a k2 and a k3 and loved them. I have heard some people saying they acutally like the kanai cars better than the sp1 and sp2

I still run a Kanai 3. Everyone says the Kanai MP7.5 are more stable than the MP777's

If the price is right, and it's in decent shape, go for it.


If your a good enough driver, it doesn't matter what car you wheel around the track.

Guys, please help me

I want to start in off road sport class

Actually I run on-road .12 200mm class and I have a good experience, I mean.. I know what cars run better, common problems, this things.
I was looking for a car and found the brand new kits so expansive, so I decided to buy an used car. I found a very good car in Ebay a Kanai 2. I would like to know your experience with this car. How fast it's compared with the 777 SP1, SP2 and WCE, an another question much more important. Does it still has spare parts? Kyosho still produce? Any part compatible part with 777 series?

Please comment

You should replace the hinge pins with racers edge or K-factory and use metric screws and tossed all self tapping wood screws it will be bulletproof. Love the handling on this buggy, owned an SP1 before but sold it. My buggy has lower cg radio parts from MP777, equiped with racers edge aluminum parts [front/rear torque braces, steering rack, steering knuckles and shock mounts], fiberlyte carbon fiber parts [front/rear shock towers, radio plate, steering plate and center bulkhead], and fioroni sliding clutch. High torque 94358z or 94359z for steering and high speed 94357z for throttle airtronics servos works best to control this beast.

K2 and K3 screw kits are one of my best sellers still! They are very good cars.

Sorry but I didn't find it, do you have a link for this file?

What's a good price for a K2 or K3 in good shape? $200? And for a normal 777, SP1 and SP2?

For me an amateur the lastest buggy or an older won't make so difference I think, since I just want to have fun (no race yet) because we don't have enough people to do a race, but for future maybe I could race, therefore the machine must have also race potential.
But the point is the parts. Available parts it's very important..
This TCD differential really makes diference betwen a normal one? The 777 don't come with this item.
I think I will make a list of exchangable parts, will consult the manuals of the K2, K3, 777, SP1, SP2
Does anybody know the year which this car apperead in the market?
Omg, Kyosho has too much cars!!
