Another thing I do is I leave a hole open in between the bottom pin and the top pin so its not pressing it down to tight. also check a lot of times the body is hitting on the sides in the front between the corner of the front to the wheel well..
Interesting info regarding the body mount hole on the post. Would it be beneficial to have a washer to space it up a little?

I will pay close attention to how far I mount the body from the bumper, must have mounted way to forward.

Yes, you do need to fill it up, w/o a washer the body will for sure sit too low.I did cut out a piece of rubber from an old rear tire to make the spacer.

Thanks for the help, how many holes (from the bottom up) should I be at? 2?

Could you advise whether the MRX5 and MRX6 used the same pulley gears? I have looked at the diagrams for both and they do look similar but noticed they both had different part numbers by Mugen.

The 20T brake pulley is different but on the MRX6 the MRX5 pulley can be used if you use the MRX5 lockup ring

And the 48T rear pulley is different but if you make the slot for the 3mm pin on the MRX5 pulley a little bit deeper it will fit the MRX6

The rest will fit

Have not tested if it gives you a few more seconds per tank but it does make your setting a bit leaner than if you had a hose connected directly from tank to engine. Did about three tank test and I noticed that difference. Am assuming because of the system the pressure is slightly less hence less fuel flows to the engine making it leaner?
