My Kyosho MP7.5 Project is complete. I am very happy the way this turned out.
Here are the details. The car was purchased with a Top Cad conversion kit, now I didn’t like where the battery was mounted on the kit so I moved the tray forward to allow the esc to be mounted at the back, also mounted the tray direct to the chassis to make it low as possible, this is more the standard setup on modern buggies.
Second I purchased a FTW Night Fox Kyosho MP9 Body, Blue medium springs and Kyosho conversion receiver box kit, and Mylaps Transponder form http://www.amainhobbies.com.
I trimmed the side guards to fit the new body and also trimmed the body and painted it. After that, I think the body fit perfect and I can get my 4s hard case lipo in there without jacking up the body. Note I used a couple of rubber O rings to secure the body under the clips because there seemed to be a little too much play between the body and the clips for my taste.
Everything got a good clean and lube, the diffs rebuilt, camber and toe all set, as well as the ride height. The end result is what you see in the photos bellow.
