We will see at the worlds what Pietsch rolls out with. Then again whatever shows up at the worlds by the Mugen Team, will be my next chassis! (I am a generation behind, lol)

From what I have seen with my fellow Mugen racers around the tracks we race, it does really well. I know that Pietsch and Co. have their work cut out in the ENS and Europe racing against the Infinity Empire. Even if its a few small updates, I hope they role those out as an upgrade pack like the MRX4 pack. Yet if its the regular MRX6-R then thats just fine as well, its not lacking anywhere.

No. You can find it easy online. I'll look for the part number.

If you have bought the engine new in the box then there is also a short cone delivered with it.

I checked my remaining Novarossi new in box engines and they only comes with one cone each. I bought the Novarossi .12 cone which is shorter but still the gap between the flywheel and the front bearing remained the same. I am asking my LHS to order the C0702B to try, and hopefully the taper of that cone would fit better thus reducing the flywheel gap. Thanks for all the help guys, really appreciated

The overall length of the collet doesn't matter because the diameter at the base is the same and that's what determines how far the flywheel sits against the front engine bearing. I have a bunch of collets and had to measure them all to find the right one. Measure the Major OD and find one thats slightly smaller than the Novarossi ones. That will determine which one will work. You can also use 3x5mm shims under the retaining sleeve shank to space the retainer off of the end of the crank.

So don't use it... But you are wrong.
