Hey Pierre, beside using the wrong hole on the rear hubs, what antisquat are you using?

bigboy, the MP9 chassis is very good. It has the longest wear of any we've seen, so if you can get the K item, I would say it's a good idea. If you don't have the alum rear toe block, that thing is golden... - PK

Cody and David will have a lot of races together. We already had one at France Masters. David is very fast and mature beyond his age for sure.

Hi Guys,

I own a 777Sp2 and been thinking if the MP9 body does fit into 777Sp2 ?

I know sure need some triming but overall, does it fit ?

thanks a million.

I very much doubt it.the mp9 is considerably lower profile..typically for the first time in weeks I don't have any mp9 shells awaiting painting or i'd try one on my 777 for you.Why do you want to fit an mp9 body to an sp2?

Nothing really needed, but I would suggest IFW407, it lasts forever.

sonic,

i have both cars and the mp9 body does not fit well on the 777. The original kyosho body fits better than the j concepts body, but you are wasting your time and money with the kyosho body. It is just to thin and does not last. I suppose with some major trimming it might work but it will never fit right. You might be better off just to order a 777 body on line somewhere.

couldn't agree more..the oem body is ugly too..I have 3 or 4 proline crowdpleazer2 bodies for mine and they are simply the best..nice fit and finish and top quality..get one online or ebay somewhere..

The amount of toe you run is molded into the bushing. The block says nothing about the bushing other than the KindHeadz one which is a +.5* block.
