Yup, modern belt driven touring cars are a bit of a pain to switch spurs on. That's just.. the reality there. It's the same across the board really.

Belt car spur changes are very easy compared to a FT tc4(40+ screws) with center spline, braces ,etc....Having a good set of tools is a must....

Not familiar with the MTS. But it’s looks similar to most TC. It’s gets easier each time. But you’ll find most pick a spur gear a stay with it. And just change pinion to adjust gearing.

Three screws and the spur is changed on the Schumacher Mi7. I had to change it racing last night, which you can see in this video..
