If front bulkheads cannot fit in, you need to dremel little bit the bottom corner.

if you did get the USA kit, there's a separate bag 'B' for the front bulkhead (mugen USA fixed it for you ). Also, watch out gluing the brake pads. Check the picture on the page where you install it to the bulkhead to see the right side to glue the pads on.

Are you sure you got a US kit? The whole reason why the USA was one of the last markets to get MTX4's was because Mugen USA wanted us to get the bulkheads that fit perfectly.

Yes, i just got it from my LHS last week, it has the Fast Tires sticker on the box. Along modifying the bulkhead, i also got a defective turnbuckle (bad cutting on the threads) and drive cup (cant fit thru the outter bearing), maybe i was just unlucky. Good thing my LHS helped me exchange the defective parts. All its missing is just the pipe now hehe. Cant wait to run the car!

By the way, I heard some people saying the Sirio engine doesn't fit the car, the Sirio carb either hits the break disc or the radio plate, is it true?

I must say those parts do look cool, but I am not sure if they help at all. One thing is they probably weigh more and you are adding that weight up high.

The stock front upper arm mount was a common failure on MY MRX-4. Brushing a wall or just barely clipping a corner with the wheels just right and that uppper mount will snap- especially I have noticed it is more common if you use the shims underneath for roll center adjustment.

The aluminum upper arm mounts are the only hop-up I've added to my MRX-4. The Carlsen mounts are machined hollow on the underside, so the difference in weight is probably minimal.
