The MRX6 does not need any shimming, the hinge pin is locked by 2 screws with which you can position the hinge pin up and down.

Default MRX6R

I was thinking of upgrading from the 6 to the 6R but where i race here in Australia all the blokes that upgraded to the 6R have all gone back to the 6 claiming the 6 is much better than the 6R and was l wondering has anyone else experienced this.

the R is more stable and willing to turn. i love the R better than, never wanted to switch back.
also, the latest endbell is also better. i still remembered that the previous endbell, it was broken into 2 pieces at some stage of using, the portion with 2 pinions as a piece while the lower part stayed intact with engine.
the only bad thing is the revised radio plate, it is for high traction track and relatively fragile. i broke it after "flying" a chicane. i heard from my LHS that a lot of people broke it.

if your track is not a high traction one. i will suggest to add the "V" brace to reinforce it. there is also a newer shape by "yugurix", the mechanic of mr. shoki, the lastest all japan 1/8 national champion 2018
YURUGIX-???????????????????

I prefer the 6 bell I an not a fan of having 4 smaller bearings in the bell there is more bearings to chance of failing small balls are not as strong as the big ones,. I never had a problem with the 6 bell I think a lot of people over tighten the pinion gears remember the bell is aluminum I use thread lock and don't over tighten it,. also I been cutting my radio plate like that since I was running the mrx4!! in all the years I broke one, see the 6 and 6r are made to be really stiff because ever since euro tracks have went with no tire sauce allowed and they don't spray the tracks anymore u don't want a flexing car u want it stiff to drive those tires in the ground, here in the us I have to loosen this r up to make it flex because we spray the track and use sauce so the open radio plate really don't make sense it allows flex and with the way they made the 6 and 6r to be so stiff I don't know y they did that but it is what it is I never used anything else but mugen and always have been happy !!

Aluminium does get weak when it is overheated. When you had issues with the clutch running with a lot of slip then it is wise not to re-use the bell but throw it away.

What are the reasons for the claim that the 6 is better than the 6R? What kind of track is it?

basically the carbon middle section that they used in the worlds is full aluminium but the rear remained unchanged (instead of narrower).
Did the original MRX-6 have 2 or 3 chassis before the R?

I believe they had a prototype Chassis before the R came out.

Thats is the only thing I can think of.
