Use a kyosho arm.
Tommy has some pictures showing how.

Yes, the body is still race legal, because in the "standard" height, it is lower then other body's...

Thats not a Mugen Arm. He is running a mod!

By the way: Do you have other pictures of his car? Would like to see if he runs the rear wheelbase short and also the front of the car...

Thanks

here is the part #KYOFM602. your going to need some 3mm I.D. washer's or spacer's cause the Kyosho part is a little wider then the Mugen one and maybe little longer screws too.

Ok guys, thanks a lot for your help! Just measured the Zytec - It really sits a bit too low in the rear with the Mugen H Arms. Surprisingly it is my best handling body anyway. Cant wait to see how it performs with longer arms...

@TommyBlazin

Pietsch mounts his Zytec bodies using the original "drill marks" in the body.
This results in 13mm ahead of bumper or so. I would suggest to bring all 4 excenters of the body mount to the "full backwards" postion and then drill the front holes at the "marks". Adjust the rear holes as needed.
Later on (on the track) you could move the body mount excenters to the "full forward" position and bring the body 3mm more to the front if you need more steering.

Have fun, Stefan

Do you suppose people are getting board with this car? Time for an upgrade or new kit? If I was in Mugen marketing, the silence on this thread would be deafening!
p.s. I happen to love this car so don't taze me bro
