Kyosho MP7.5!!They are like indestructable. Someone I race with has had one for 4 years and hasn't broken anything. He also beats it pretty hard.Just my 2 cents. If you don't want to spend that much, get a Mayhem.

Anyone have experiance with the new XTM Pro 1/8th buggy? They have 3 models but the Pro version is pretty nice looking and you just need to add a radio and motor.

I still run my MP7.5 and love it. I dont see a need to change right now, it is still competitive and is imposible to break. I am in the process of getting it ready for the new season right now. I plan on running it all season long, maybe I'll get a new car in 06, but 7.5s are still around and very cheap now that a new model is out so I would say get a 7.5.

Default MP7.5 K3 Shocks

I have a brand new Kanai 3 kit that still hasn't been used and one of the shocks is leaking from the hole on the top of the shock Any idea on why this one is leaking and if I was to refill the shock with different weight fluid would I still need to get new o-rings etc.?

Cheers

Only in the hands of those who can't set one up correctly otherwise they're about 2 to 4 ounces heavier than a similarly equipped K3. Slow, must be a poor engine in the one you saw, drop any top engine in a 9.5 and it moves.

PS I have both a 9.5 and a MP777, admittedly my lap times are better with the 777, I think the new suspension makes it quicker around the track.

Inferno -

Check to see if the bladder is in the correct slot in the cap. It shouldn't be pushed all the way up but in the first slot. Next you need to tighten the cap snuggly against the body. Oil will come out of the bleed hole until you screw it down tight but don't overtighten the cap.

Replace any damaged or worn out O-Rings regardless of the oil weight.
