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.

Overall the metal parts can be thinner so weight is around the same. Non-issue.

This car builds on the experience of the MTX5 and 6, it won't disappoint(let's hope it doesn't strip spur gears lol).

Have another beer and it might get straight! Ha Ha. But yeah, it looks like it.

Both sides are as tucked as it can be, the front is more tucked in than the rear.

The battery position is similar to the Awesomatix A800 due to using a similar drivetrain layout as the A800.

Ha.

I don't know about the car, but Robert sure can drive! Nearly stole Naoto's third place in the second leg, and kept Reinhard at a respectable distance (which not many manage to do).

Pretty awesome result for Mugen. 3 cars in existence and the designer does this with it... bummer the 3rd leg is rained out.

The other car at the race being driven by a nitro guy didn't do that winning the C. I'd say a 5th and 21st is respectable for a brand new car
