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.

Yeah, let's not derail the thread by saying how Mike Gee won a race by switching to a full size pack...


Relax dude. The conversation was in context to the topic. No one has a Mugen in their hands yet. All we can do in this thread is bs and speculate at the moment.

Snuvet, PM me for an answer... Don't want to offend people out here.

I asked myself the same question and really dont want to trim my Aluminium Servo case. I had a small Chat with RP this morning and he said that a Kind off "offset-Servomount" is possible with the kit parts that a trimming of the
servo case is not necessary. Lets see what happens.

I'd like to have it as an option. I quite like the ARS on my Xray.

My mistake. Nothing illegal about it. Just that it's been a while since I dealt with electric cars. Got confused. I was referring to higher than 8.4v charging.

This car looks awesome with a narrower chassis/longer arms "look." I bet this thing will take a beating. My last Mugen was an MTX-3 and it was a tank. This has me wanting to get back into RC.

Performula,

My last car was a MTX4 and it was super durable too. I'm just getting back from a long hiatus and this car has me excited to get back into on road.
