I also used mugen tank & stand offs.I had to cut the little nub off the bottom of the mugen standoff in the front & trimm the footings where it touched the chassis to fit in the chassis notches so it would lock in & not spin when tightening the screw.I drilled a hole forward of the rear post hole & used the stock hole for the nub on the bottom of the mugen mount to lock into. The mugen mount locations are a hair closer together than the AE ones & the Mugen tank ends up bowing the top of the posts in like 2mm at each end,no biggy but drilling a new hole gets you more room for the brake rods. I left a ass load of detailed instructions/pictures on the AE site if they havent deleted them yet but its been a year or so since.My user name is the same there I think.

Thought I'd mozy over there for old times sake & look what I found.

I did no modifying. It was tight but does work and has been that way almost two years. Won't hurt to mod a little but I did not feel/see the need.
