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.

Probably 116tooth (64pitch) crown (spur) and 27tooth (64pitch) pinion but of course this depends on the track size. ESC programming, and many other factors.

general spares for the car are the usual stuff to have,
arms and steering knuckles, extra sway bars (at least the 1.3 rear), maybe a set of belts just in case.

not sure anything on the car is weak, but of you hit something hard enough, something will likely break. Depending on what car you have (old front end or the new performance upgrade kit A2002 for the car), will determine what option parts you may want. If still using the old style front end, then making sure you have the one piece top deck is a must. You can either use the first gen top deck, or you can use the new top deck that comes with the performance upgrade kit, if you want to use the new pitch rod setup with a slight mod to the top deck to fit the old style front end parts. If you already have the performance upgrade kit on the car, then you don't need much else in option parts, aside front some of the option wheel hexes and maybe a belt tensioner. You could also get the fan mount if you don't have that too.

if I understand your question correctly,
no you can't use 64 pitch with a 48 pitch gears. Have to be the same pitch for both the spur gear and pinion. I think most everyone uses 64 pitch in general

smaller the number of the shock springs, the softer the spring rate.

Correct,
With TC's currently it's the opposite. There a few brands of springs most seem to use for TC regardless of chassis. Xray, SMJ, and Axon are the few I've seen ran with xray being the most commonly brand of spring used
