This being my first Mugen, it was hands-down one of the nicest kits I've ever put together. Everyone's claims of Mugens just falling together weren't exaggerated. Only fault I found was that it seems like the side belt is still too long. Anyone contacted Mugen for a shorter replacement?

or use bigger bearings for the belt bensioner
or second belt bensioner
or shorter belt
or middle block with other screw holes

or just leave it as it is, works great, very less wear on the belt and pulleys
6 Races - all good

i started it originally as what it was, no real problem.
my friend gave me a cso, it is running as good as it was without it.
probably it is just the matter of its outlook which gives you "perception".

Yeap. Just be sure that the locating tooth on H0294 (aluminum nut thing that the belt tensioner screws into) is up. Also check that there is clearance between H0294 and the rear of the forward mounting ear on the engines crank case.

Yup, the tooth was down Thanks Drew. It's a bit tighter now

And thanks to everyone for the suggestions.

Do keep in mind that if your running your chassis open you can introduce tweak either during chassis flex or if ya have the belt strung tight enuff you can introduce static tweak.

It's still somewhat loose, but not loose enough to skip...just not used to seeing the tensioner almost completely bottomed out with a new belt.
