MTC1 Manual on the Mugen Web Site.

Correction for the manual




The max/min tooth count of the spur and pinion combined.

64p = 127 to 164 total teeth


48p = 95 to 120 total teeth


People who have spare spur gears left over from other cars which they wish to use but can only utilize 2 of the 4 mounting holes, here's neat trick from MKAH to drill 2 more holes precisely in the spur gear:

1.Dismantle the Spur Holder and mount XRAY Spur with two screws.

2.If you have take a 3mm Top Setting Screw

3.Get the Top Screw in the first free thread to the Spur Holder from the other side until it touches the Spur a litle bit.
Make the same with the second free Thread.


4.Dismantle Top set Srew an the two screws witch holds the Spur on the Holder.
Now you see two marks absolutely central.


5. Take an 3mm Driller an Drill the holes at the marked places

6.Mount the Spur with the two old and two new holes on the Spur.


Spur Gears known to fit the gear holder with the correct hole pattern

1. Axon
2. Panaracer


Upper front arm hinge pin set screw tip (or any of the kit set screws):

When installing the set screw run the set screw in until you can see it come into the hinge pin gap. Back the screw out and make sure there is no flashing in the way and then the screw. Now slide the pin in and you should hit the pin and come to a dead stop. It will be a solid feel and not sloppy like it will not tighten which is caused by any loose plastic.

Looks more like the upper arm from the mtx6 and mrx6 so you'll have different mounting plates for inline/ trailing axle.

Wow, Mugen stepping into the game. Should be interesting. Always was a fan of their 1/8th buggies.

Are you saying that it is more durable than an Xray?

For the record I race off road and my Mugen (ebuggy) takes so much abuse with no broken parts. All of the ebuggies are like that.... I break one part every two years. I wish touring cars were like that....

Mugen is a great brand.....Xray now has more competition...... Parts are cheaper too....

I'm not so sure that the mugen is using a pillow ball setup. The arms look like they might use a turnbuckle similar in fashion to the VBC FX upper arms.

It's most likely a hybrid pillow ball setup like on their nitro touring car. Lower pillow ball with an upper turnbuckle-
