I am running the Buku now, still trying to get use to it. Use to run the Werks light with 2 carbon shoes with .9 springs and 2 aluminum with 1.0.

They are all pretty good, but I like the m2c with the steel flywheel and med shoes. Lasts forever.

Ok, now that some time has passed, who makes a good pipe/header combo that fits the 6R? I know of a few headers bent for the Mugen, but I want to be sure I'm buying the right combo for an Alpha engine.

Right now, I'm running an Alpha EFRA 2081 pipe. I like the performance, just tired of melting bodies and such.

I havent had an issue and run Alpha pipes all the time. Alpha makes a header similar to the OS/Nova header that works also. Which Alpha are you running??

I like the Mugen 41029 pipe header designed for the MBX6 platform. I use it with Nova, Os pipes, etc.... and offer good performance on all of them. It is "bent" and fits real nice on the buggy. Werks now makes one also.

Not at all. Unsprung weight has been used in many forms of racing.

Nice mount but crappy finish. Mine was peeling off before I opened the bag.

It's the best mount I have used to date as well! Although it's the only motor mount I've ever ran.
