The overall width of the car is the same, but as it relates to your question, it's more narrow from one side of the chassis to the other. I'm not sure by how much, but perhaps I can measure it. If you want a different body, I'm sure there are some options out there that will work. Perhaps a Pro-Line or JConcepts body for a Jammin, O'Donnell or some of the HoBao and HongNor cars would fit as they're wider like the 777.

Thank you for the response! I was hoping the MP9 would fit as it has a overall lower style roof and all compared to the proline and jconcepts bodies for the 777.

If there is anyway you could measure for me I would highly appreciate it!

Seeing as I've got a 777 sp2 and a MP9 I've just tried it and the only thing stopping the MP9 body going on was the back section catching against the shock tower, apart from that it seemed to fit ok.

CONGRATS TEAM KYOSHO AND TEBO ON DUAL NATIONAL TITLES... The MP9 is on a roll with no end in sight. It's only going to get better between now and Pattaya.

Next stop, IFMAR Worlds...

Thank you! Tried soft I-Beam and it was really impressive, better than the soft City Block. The rear end still a bit loose though. Thinking of moving the camber link to number 3 hole on the shock tower (currently on number 8 hole and down left hole on the alu rear hub) and thicken up the front oil to #400 (currently #350 all around). What do you think can I expect from these change? Thanks!

I like your idea on the #3 camber link hole, that's where we end up if you want more rear traction. Also you can lower the rear oil to settle it down or lower the middle for more front wheel spin. Raising the front oil will help too, but mainly it will jump better.

Josh wheeler races at my local track along with Matt Gosch, Wheeler would be one of the top 10 at every event, but he doesn't practice more than maybe one or 2 days every week. I would think pro's like Maifield, Tebo, and Drake run run very often
