Kyosho Inferno MP 7.5 sports
April 8, 2003 at 4:53 pm #11671
hey guys, im looking to buy a 1/8 scale off road buggy, and i have pretty much decided on the MP 7.5. Does anyone have any comments, good or bad, on this car? or know of a good website that i could go to to check it out?
im interested in any performance details if anyone knows about them. i read in another forum that it maybe goes 0-100 in about 2 seconds, is this true?
thanks for your input

Inferno is a great car, world champs for last 12 yrs STRAIGHT!!
MP7.5 is good, the Kanai will have even more goodies.
It is a bit expensive compared to the Taiwanese etc buggies so “value” isn’t fantastic… but heck, there’s a premium to be paid for good stuff.Quote:im interested in any performance details if anyone knows about them. i read in another forum that it maybe goes 0-100 in about 2 seconds, is this true?
Can you accurately tell speed from just looking at something…? :smiley2:
You Sure?? :p
MP7.5 don’t come with engine; what combo of engine and pipe you stick in it will determine its speed, as will your engine tuning etc etc.

im looking at two different models:
one comes with a GS.21R recoil start engine
the other, a Kyosho GX21 engine – i have never heard of this engine before and can find no info on it, apparently it is a new release…

The only one with the pullstart 21 engine is the “Sport”. The others are the MP 7.5 and Kanai I & II, these all don’t have engines in the kit.
Kyosho’s 21 engines are honest donks, they’re quite reliable and easy to maintain. They’re known to run a bit hot though, but this doesn’t seem to hurt them. Of course there’s no where near as much power as a $500 racing engine, but there’s still enough to do some serious damage.
If you’re not into serious racing, the Sport kit is more than enough. Put in a decent radio set, and a stronger steering servo is recommended too.
