it's alright, you can still run that belt. You just need to run the pulleys looser, it's what a lot of us were doing when running the TA05 pulleys, before the MRE belts were avaliable.

I have been thinking about getting the short wishbones for my MRE. Can anyone who has tried these please advise me on any advantage this gives to handling and any other changes I need to make ie, driveshafts or suspension blocks. Thanks for any info.

I run the short arms on my MRE, but only on carpet. It seems to rotate faster and smoother for me. And I had to go to the E block in the rear with 6mm hubs and .5 spacers to get like 189.5mm width. I did not have to change my drive shafts but they are just about all the way in...luckily, no binding.

the only problem i have with getting the msx is that it's the lw suspension, i like the heavy duty suspension that the original has, i havn't ever broken any of it, i've stripped out uprights, but that's it.
