Default Kyosho Inferno Neo

Is this a good buggy? Is it new? Would hobby shops carry parts for these or no?

Like any other product, some hobby shops carry it, and some don't. It's a new version of a buggy that Kyosho has had for many years, based on the Inferno 7.5. It's the best version of the Inferno ReadySet yet. This particular version of the car has more than a 10 year history, so there's lots of shops that have stock of, or have easy access to parts. Additionally, there are a number of aftermarket parts that can be installed from many companies.

Before the Losi buggy became the new car to copy, the Inferno 7.5 was the most copied car on the planet because its such a solid design. In fact, the Jammin buggy that the team is currently racing is a knock-off of the Inferno 7.5.

"Good" is a relative term. Yes, it's a good buggy for someone looking for a ready to run that's very durable and there's a global supply of parts. If you're getting into organized racing, you can start with the Inferno Neo, but if you get really serious, then you may want to start looking into a more modern racing machine.

I am looking at getting one of these. When you or other people say to look into other good running brands what do you mean ? (ofna, ae? ) is there any other buggy you would recomend taking a look for around the 300 dollar range ?
thanks

My RDS NEO.. a bit custom but shares many parts.. the big bores most importantly

It doesn't have to be MP9 to be fun at the track (10 yrs offroad experience

Hi there,

I think mp777 body fits when replacing the sideguards with the ones from mp777

I did some rebuilding with chinese "CNC" parts from Asiatees and also have mounts and clutch parts from Dragon Racing waiting for the O.S

I replaced all gears with original steel Kyosho parts. It's not MP9 or even close but will do it for me this season at least.

Default Great

It's a great buggy. It doesn't have all the top "factory" upgrades and there may not be a bunch of carbon fiber and aluminum but you don't need all that anyway. Unless or until you can race the pro or expert class with the factory guys and local hot-shots in the sunny states that race every week and all year round, this buggy will do its part and the rest is up to you.

A theory I've seen proven time and again is this: An average car in the hands of a good driver will run circles around the best, highest dollar car available in the hands of an average driver.

Exact! I enjoy this car a lot. Maybe it's because it's not too serious or something..
