Mugen didn't put grooves in . Some place in europe is putting it on there's. They were going to ask Mugen Japan about it. You could just ask Kris Moore at Mugen or ask Scott Hughes on the Mugen USA forum. Guys have put 1 gallon on there diffs and they are clear and full. That is good enough for me.

You may want to check your "diff out drive shaft/cups" as I see from the picture there are no grooves in them to retain the grease to stop them seizing up.

I think I read some ware this is a fault in the manufacture and they should have been supplied with the grooves.

You may want to make some enquires.
The Xray doesnt have grooves either...they dont have a problem.

Im sure the diffs are fine, people have already ran gallons through the MBX6 with zero issues...

The buggy looks awesome! awesome job on building the buggy, looks like you have done this a couple of times LOL

I think that is what's awesome about Mugens, once you build one, you can build another with your eyes closed! lol

I noticed it on my car and acted before I should have. I saw a pic of Guillaume Vrays mbx6 and it appeared that he cut the extra threads so I did the same.
I attached the pic that I speak of. Well after thinking more about the extra length of the ball stud threads I am going to assume that they are like that to tune the bump steer of the car. Whats everybody else think? And by the way, I am sorry to invade your thread with a question but props for taking the time to do what you are doing and please, everyone let this person build his kit the way he would like.

I believe the extra thread is to tune out bump steer with a max of 4mm...you are correct. I'm thinking to use some of the 5R hardware to run a ball head screw from the top of the ackerman and a ball.

Thank you for the props.

pasadena_z,

Did you find that your pipe hits the rear mud guard? I heard other people on rc tech talking about that... Just wanted to see if that happened to you.
