Mugen MTC1 Wiki:

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.

the blades go with the alum outdrives on the car. Stock in the rear, option part for the front. There is a steel front outdrives option, but I don't know if it works with the blades. As for other chassis manufacturers blades working in place of the Mugen ones, I'm not sure. I just use the Mugen ones. I'm not sure if anyone makes a delrin blade either.

3mm Alu Standoffs

I have these on both my cars, so much easier than tape
have you photos please

I haven't noticed a need, but I can see how they may strengthen the mounting position and possibly make the suspension more consistent without the flex that may be there with the plastic inserts

It's about time, for me it was the weakest part when hitting the wall and screws loosening up, nowadays not hitting the wall as much so the plastic is holding up. I plan on grabbing these.
