Default Parts support for mp777 and mp7.5

Hiya folks!

If you've noticed, kyosho tends to "downgrade" it's stable of race level are buggies to entry level kits or rtr packages, once a new buggy platform is out.

In this case, mp9 is the most current platform.

Mp777 is still being used as a platform for the truggy class (they just only released the st-rr evo! Still based on mp777)

Mp7.5 is now sold as rtr (inferno Neo) and gt on-road class. This means that parts supply for all 3 platforms are still in good supply!

I wouldn't worry about parts support. If I were still running a mp777, I'd worry about setup and competiveness...

The mp9 is a wayyyyyyyy better car, handling wise; it's faster on acceleration ( cos of lighter transmission and overall weight.

More likely, you'll just have a lot less fun cos the other kyosho drivers can out wheel your car(assuming you have same driving skill).

with the newest incarnation of mp9 (tki3), you get the best car there is. I'd say retire the mp777 or sell it cheap to a kid or noob who wants to start gp buggy on a budget...
