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.

Is there a harder alternative to the stock steering blocks? For some reason on non hard hits I've broken 3 all of a sudden.

Did they break at the steering arm / tie rod mount?

I grind off the steering stopper that is on the gold caster block.. I found that this piece will hit in a wreck and snap the block, sometimes in a hard wreck it would break the stopper off the caster block even.

Nevermind, you are using the C-hub design, I was referencing the older style.

If those break, that is where mine usually break too, fyi. You running a solid arm, or a servo saver?

I do not. I’m not sure that would save it considering I can slide a 3mm washer between the 2 at full swing with the radio on.

Hyperfuxx, i imagine your not running a servo saver. Curiosity is that i wonder, even with a tighter / stiffer servo Saver, if perhaps it will prevent this on your car? The only other thing, but not sure is if boiling the steering knuckles would render them more.pliable, lile we used to do on the MBX6-7? Has anyone played with Tamiya or Xray knuckles? Ill check the tamiya ones when i get home.

Make sure youíre running at least the 5.5m steering stop collar on the bottom side of the steering rack center block. I prefer 6.0m myself, but others on this thread like the 5.5m. Just something to double check. All 3 of my cars have taken serious hits and surprises me that the car is able to race on.

I do have the 6mm on. I’ll have to double check everything. I recently installed the performance kit and shortly there after this is when the problem started.

With the 6mm should the upright touch the C-hub with the car off? Doesn't seem the steering stop is doing its job. I have a 1 mm for bump steer and I never checked the toe after install. Maybe I have too much toe in?

Can you fit knuckles from another brand on the car?
