Hi Tony,

You are right. That is the 10-12 day delivery time. We ship with EMS (4-6 day delivery).

Hope this helps.

Default I got my 777 from a guy in new york, great service

The car is very good. The K2 K3 setup does not really work on it. But the stock set up in the manual is a great starting point. The great thing about the car is that it is enough like the K cars that you can bum parts from them. But the changes they made on the car are noticable. You can easily upgrade a K car to a 777. Why has no one thought to do that.

I mean for about $70 bucks you can upgrade to a 777.

70 Bux

the 2 cars are about 80% different!

there's no way you could change that many parts for 70 Bux

the K2& 3 are OK as they are anyway, unless they're worn out completely i'd stay with the older car & change when you really need to

Default I have both cars the K2 and 777

I got the 777 on a sat and had to race it the next day. So I ended up just assemblying as much of the car as possible and using alot of my K2 stuff.
Things you would need to buy
Front and rear arms
front upper arms
caster blocks
rear shock shafts
front shock tower
front and rear plastic pivot plates
Thats it
Yes there is a couple of other things that are different but these are things that change the geometry of the car.

If anyone is still shopping for a 777 Sp1........

Got mine from Stella Models in HK for $650 + $62 reg post shipping. The cool thing about it too is that I received the package four days later through FedEx. I was sooo stoked! I wasn't expecting it so soon.

I highly recommend Stella Models. Great prices and excellent service. They even emailed me updates on package tracking.

I looked yesterday and they still have the 777 Sp1 in stock for $650.

I have a Question for My Curiosity for anybody who has had/still have a K2/3 & also a 777! Will the New 777 Body fit the K3? I like how the Nose is on the Body so it won't break off like the bodies are Notorious for doing between the Shock Tower are, though I must admit since they came out with the extra piece of Lexan under the Body I haven't broke one yet! LMK if NEbody knows the answer to that ?, Thanks!

Default The 777 has Narrower side guards

So no the new body will not fit. And I don't think the new side guards will fit on the old car.
I run my old body on the 777 because I have not got my new body painted yet. And it is so wide compared to the 777 side guards. The exhaust tip does not even come close to making it outside the body.

i always cut the noses off like in my picture a few posts up
some say it aint pretty but its prettier than a broken body first time out! it makes getting the shell on & off so much faster & the shells last for ages as you're not pulling them about so much getting them on & off, plus theres no nose to catch on the ground if like me you happen to go over every coupla laps

Tony - You forgot a few other parts that changed like the servo saver, servo saver top plate, Chassis, all the suspension plates not just the plastic ones, radio plate, chassis braces, center drive shafts, and side guards. There are probably other parts I missed.

The front shocks are the same as are the tie-rods, rear hubs, diffs (except the new center diff), front and rear drive shafts, rear hubs, fuel tank, brakes, wing mount, clutch, engine mounts, front and rear bulkheads, and radio box.

Default Windel you are right there are alot of new parts

But alot of things that you listed are not 100% nessasary. Much like the K2 to the K3 is not much difference. Whats different about the center diffs. I ran my whole K2 center diff and brake unit before I had time to finish building the rest of the new car.
