SUSY continues to elude direct searches at Run 2 of the LHC. Hence, indirect probes like electroweak precision observables are relevant to explore the parameter space of a model. The mass of W boson is such an observable where the LHC experiments are on their way improve on the uncertainties of the experimental result. The prediction for $M_W$ has been studied in depth in the MSSM and NMSSM.

Here, we show the implementation of an on-shell calculation for $M_W$ in the Minimal R-symmetric Supersymmetric SM (MRSSM) extending previous work. This also includes a comparison of different renormalisation schemes and their respective uncertainties when applying them to the calculation of $M_W$ in a BSM model.
