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.

Trying to get all parts needed to get it running when it's available. What size turnbuckle wrench is needed?

Just ordered Bittydesign m410 body. Will be getting ride premounted tires, 28 red and 32 blue. Haven't done touring for three years. Been doing off-road. But I can't pass up a mugen tc, the only brand that can bring me back to this class.

Most likely 4mm turn buckle wrench.
Where are you going hitting a track? Indoor/Outdoor surface type? Ride 28 and 32s sound a bit too soft. Would check what the other folks in your area are running first

You have to love this guy.

The car is not even out yet, nobody's had one in front of them and this guy is worrying about the turnbuckle wrench.

I have to confess that when I decided to get my VBC D06, I was concerned about the turnbuckle wrench too. I didn't want to scratch the sexy bits so I made sure I had the VBC graphite wrench set before I started the build. Later I found out that the Hudy wrench fits better on VBC than it does on Xray so I use that now - not a scratch on them and the little laser engraves (Robert Pietsch quote) are still perfect. LOL.

Speaking of cosmetics, my MTC1 is on order from the LHS and I'm actually worried it's going to make my brand new T4'17 look junky. The MTC1 has that military super high zoot look like the Awesomatix cars.
