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.

I'll probably get them for extra build confidence - still waiting for my 2019 performance kit to come in but it looks like a Mugen made mid motor conversion is coming soon.

My 2019 performance kit and aluminum chassis finally came in (ordered by my LHS via Amain). I did receive the V2 aluminum C-hubs so that was a relief. I started the rebuild yesterday and I'm delighted with it so far. The new hubs fit perfect and look really good. But what I'm even more impressed with is the overall condition of my MTC1. I've used it for some club racing, 2 Canadian Nats and even let a buddy beat the hell out of it on club nights in order to get a new racer hooked on the hobby (it worked) but my MTC1 is still in fantastic condition. Nothing is bent, all the bulkheads were still perfectly aligned due to the locating pins and incredibly, even the axle bearings still feel like new. The quality of the car is even more impressive now. By the time I'm done the rebuild it will be a brand new top of line car... and assuming a mid motor conversion is released I'll get to do it again

If Mugen does decide to go the mid motor route,
new belts front and rear, new chassis, and new top deck are the minimum needed things to do it, possibly a new motor mount maybe required. As it stands right now, only one person has made a couple conversions that I know of, and I think when I read up on it, it didn't seem like he had plans to make more for sale. So hopefully it'll be something that Mugen may develop down the road

I sheared off a front arm over the weekend front tagging the wall and slightly tweaked the new v2 caster block in the process, along with killing the steering link mount onnthe knucle. Not a lot of give wi the alum caster block, so it naturally put the most force on the arm and killed that. Nothing else bent or broken which was a little surprising with the hit it took. Didn't take much to straighten the caster block back out so the knuckle moved freely like it should. Over all it's been a very durable car for me as well. The few things I have broken were totally my fault (couple arms and a couple knuckles).

Best thing to do to "help" prevent caster blocks damage is to be sure and install the 6mm steering stop collar. Not sure fire cure for very high impact crashes but for an average impact they do a great job. Got'em on all 3 cars w/conversions.

I have the 5.5 ones on both cars, but I think the hit the arm took was enough that the arm split apart at the end, not sure the 6mm stopper would have helped. Lucky shot I'm guessing.

no photos sorry, but on the underside of the plastic steering block between the steering arms directly below the inner attachment point of the link between the servo and steering block. Kit is 5mm diameter, conversion kit is either 5.5mm or 6mm. Helps keep impacts from letting the hub carriers smash against the c hubs so severely. Hope this helps.
