    I am restoring an old (well old by rc standards) Kyosho Inferno MP-5, but can't seem to find a manual. If anyone has an electronic version or a link to a manual I would appreciate it very much. I have been using the MP-7.5 manual and it gets me mostly what I need, but not everything. I have been able to get every part that I needed from either Tower Hobbies or ebay, so I should be able to finish this soon.

    Here is what I have replaced/purchased so far:
    kyosho screw set for MP7.5 (most of the same screws)
    center differential housing
    center differential set
    plate set (for brake support)
    brake set
    center shafts
    muffler stay
    tie rod set
    flywheel (MP5 proprietary - over priced)
    wide engine plate
    linkage set
    side guards
    receiver box
    clutch set
    clutch bell
    radio & servos

    still need:
    flywheel nut
    (possibly need manifold if one that I have doesn't work)
    motor mounts

    This will be as expensive as a new MP7.5 Sport RTR, but it is a blast putting it together.

    I will probably buy an OS 21 RG ($110 at LHS) due to this already being so expensive and I don't want to get a divorce any time soon. LOL!

    Oh yeah, I bought on ebay what was advertised as a MP-5 center differential with brake set, brake support and linkage, but it was for the Kyosho Inferno series (Burns DX/ Inferno/ Inferno DX/ Turbo Inferno/ Inferno ST ), which doesn't work on the MP-5. Anyone need one of these?

    hey I have a MP-6, or at least I think I still do lol. I am thinking of keeping it when I get it back, or possibly selling/tradeing it.

    Those have been selling very well on ebay. If it is RTR and is in very good condition, maybe you can get $200 or more.

    I just about have the engine broke in. Wow, the engine has a lot of power. It sounds like a kawasaki dirt bike going down the street. I guess I have to run this on the track or the High School parking lot around the corner, because it is just too loud.
