Has anybody tried the MRX5 chassis made by CSO?

I installed one yesterday and it seems to be longer than the original?

The rear belt tensioner (the rear axle bearings) as at its loosest position and the belt is pretty tight.

Then the side belt is pretty tight as well and I had to looses that belt tensioner as well.
