Default WTB Kyosho 777 Electric Conversion Kit

Like the title says, I am looking for the best elec. conversion kit for a 777. I'm hearing that the kyosho kit is the highest quality, but feel free to chime in on that. Also I want POWER! So please post your recommendations as to what motor/esc/battery pack/charger combo I need. I no very little about electric and lipos so please help a brotha out. TIA

The Kyosho conversion kit is the best out there, I'm converting one of my 777's to electric, the Mamba Monster 2200kv system is quite a bit of power for the buggy, Castle has excellent warranty and customer service, as far as lipos go I would say Thunder Power but a little pricey compare to SMC or Reedy batteries, they are all Roar Approved. I myself run SMC but last month at the State race I almost got disqualified as my new battery did not have the Roar sticker on it yet it is listed as approved

BTW, I'm the guy that was parked next to you in the small trailer at B&B. I did not run my 777 as it was acting up (Damn Nitro!) so I ran my electric classes.

Later,

MJ

Name is Mike, yeah, I was busy running 2 classes, friends,family, fixing a blown shock... finished 2nd in both classes. I'll have my 777e done in a couple of weeks but plan to run my 777 Nitro in the next race.

Hey Mike, the nitro truggy turn out was only me. So they stuck me in the mix with all the electric truggies. I did alright. My MP9 I started a lap down and managed to come back in the main.


Seabass,
How much of a pain is the conversion you have to install? I heard some shtuff where the holes dont line up properly. Please tell me otherwise.

With the stock chassis mine was a slam dunk.The other one I got came from a rtr kyosho truggy I got in trade so it did not line up perfectly.The battery tray is worth it ,really nice but a little heavy.My 777 weighs in around 8.5lbs with battery.
