Make sure to wrap the Lipo. I add shrink wrap or tape with padding as when dirt gets in, you don't want it to rub into the pack and damage the cells.

I like how the mud guards go ALL the way around the chassis. That's pretty neat.

this thread just might talk to me into getting this buggy, LOL. It looks really nice.. Very beefy too.

I am not a Kyosho fan well lets say it's more I am not an expensive buggy fan. However that thing loogs sick I like it alot actually. That one picture of it sitting on the glasses the shock tower looks like its glowing. Not to mention the builder is doing a pretty damn good job. Can't wait to get my inferno GT2 and the Losi 2.0. I'll probally put things on backwards too from the excitement. Although the GT2 comes assembled . Nice buggy keep the post going.

Great tread brother.

Man if you guys would have seen Cody King wheel that thing last night at Revelation, you would go buy one just for the possibility of the car working that good..... can you say fast!!!!!!!

I think the Xray XB808 and this MP9 are now my favorite buggies.

Good job on the build! Thats what forums are good for.. info, & pics!

Nice

It is a beautiful buggy. However, like many others, I just can't justify the cost.
