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.

Every brand has their own steering that is applied in their vehicles in each class. Just driving another persons car without being told what brand it is, you might be able to guess it based on how it feels and turns.

That's why if you've driven a Schumacher and xray you will notice that they both have a lot of steering and feel very similar. I've had the first t4 and drove a friend's Schumacher. Schumacher has a bit more steering and responsiveness. Hb is always saying their buggies drive like kyoshos, giving that confidence to drive hard.

Can't find my source where I read it years ago. Believe it or not doesn't matter to me. Let's try not to stray too far from this thread subject.
This doesn't sound right, the Hudy brand came before the Xray brand ever existed and before that Hudy stuff came under the brand Special, I still have a Special comm lathe. Phil Booth who I know well is the man behind most of the past cars and still involved with some of the present Schumacher cars and a great guy and fantastic engineer, used to help in testing some of their older onroad cars and before Phil Booth Cecil Schumacher the founder of Schumacher was the main man.

Afaik, Hudy used to manufacture parts for Serpent and Corally back in the days, never heard of him working for Schumacher indeed

I didn't say Hudy was the main engineer or anything like that while at Schumacher. I'm gonna agree that Schumacher cars are great. Nothing has as much steering. Everything else depends on rotation which Mugens have speedy rotating ability but still controllable. That's what I'm expecting out of this new tc.

Hara isn't sponsored by a chassis for touring car. He's run Kyosho, AMX, TRF (with Yokomo electrics lol), Yokomo and others in the past 12-18months alone.
