I would run another filter set up if I were you guys until this issue gets addressed. And before you ask, yes it was on tight, yes it had filter oil and yes it was installed correctly.
You could try one of these covers to help seal the edges...

I'm not crazy about the filter fit either. I added a little grease to the ends of the filter element to help seal those areas.

The shift body has been available for about 3 weeks now. It may not be on thier site though. When I got mine I had to call pro-line.

Those of you who have built your mbx6's and are using lipo receiver packs, which packs are you using? I know this will fit but would like to go smaller if possible:
