hi guys , just checkiing. I have just finished building my mbx6 and found that the break linkage seem to hit the fuel tank especially the bottom one.

i cut the metal linkage to 60mm as suggested by the manual.

i am using ace servo horn.

any suggestions??

Compare your servo horn to the one in the instructions. The clearance of the linkage/tank is reliant on some angle being built into the linkage setup. The links should not be exactly perpendicular to the center diff. You may need a longer horn to achieve this angle.

The MBX5r and MBX 6 clutch flywheels are exactly the same, any aftermarket clutch that worked on the old car should work with the new one.

Hey I have a little something to share that may be of importance to you. Last night at the races I noticed a little more than usual moisture around my carb so I started looking close at it and found the fuel tank splash guard that covers the rear of the tank toward the clutch had rubbed a hole in the rubber air filter boot. I guess from the chassis flex it had been rubbing and finally broke through. You may want to trim alittle plastic off the splash guard if its close to your air filter boot. "Of course this is all dependent on engine, filter, carb set up etc." May be nothing to some but maybe a new motor to others.

yeah the measurements in the manual for the turnbuclkes and brake and throttle linkages are a joke. Mine where way off. I had to end up cutting the spring a little for the throttle linkage

I called Mugen tonight about my broken outdrive. They told me I am the
first to call with this. They would replace it only this time if i faxed
them my invoice. I know of 2 people that called Mugen about this same issue.

I bought my car at the track from a mobil hobby shop. I paid cash and
didnt get a receipt so Im SOL.

Hot Bodies sent me 4 CVD no questions asked go figure.

Anyone want an MBX6 with 2 nights on it for $400 shipped? Has M2C upper
hinge holder.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there specific section specifically intended for the sale of items you no longer want/need? It's called For Sale/Classifieds guys.

Its obvious that the HB has cvd issues so Id hope they would replace them. If the problem is persistent maybe Mugen will acknowledge it easier.
Just for info, what out drive is breaking and why is it happening or what where you doing when it happened? Thanks.

I agree. One outdrive broken doesn't mean there is an issue. Maybe you just didn't put it together right

i know I asked this before but should there be any backlash between the ring and pinion? Like I said I have the diff shimmed to make the ring and pinion tighter. Should I take the shim out and let there be just a little of back lash?

I put it together right. I actually know of 2 others so it is rare but I am not the only one.

As little back lash as possible but make sure they turn free. On my front diff I used no shims, on the rear the mesh was tight so I used 2 shims to move the ring gear away from the pinion.
