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.

Started building my new buddy yesterday evening.

Coming from Awesomatix, I have to say the quality of all parts is very very nice with little details which make the car built up very easy.

Just for example all parts which are connected to the chassis (bulkheads etc.) are pinned which leads to zero misalignment. Bullet proof !!

Diff is note quite smooth yet, I guess I have to give it some run-in of course.
One thing which was not nice was the rear drive shaft. When screwing the little grub screw the inside sleeve is pulled towards one direction which results in a little overhang of the sleeve. Because of this it was not possible to fully rotate the drive shaft in all directions because the overhang of the sleeve was blocking it.
I tried different things but finally grinded down the sleeve one one direction (about 0,05mm). Now it is working.
However the drive shaft still feels not very smooth, I hope this improves during run-in...

Apart from that I had to ream the suspension parts a little bit (but no big deal). I also used aluminium shims instead of the plastic version. The suspension moves really smooth, with almost zero slop, no need to shim anything (don't know if it's different with plastic shims).

I hope to finish the rest of the kit today.. I still need to grind some more carbon parts.. but that is just for optical reason

cheers,
Felix

update:
seems like I have mixed up the sleeves for drive shaft (black) and front steering (silver shiny)..although both have almost identical geometry it seems.. so probably unnecessary grinding of the sleeve ..

Will give it a new try this evening. Man that's stupid ^^

I've just been reading through the manual, and I didn't see any shock bladders. Are these emulsion shocks?

Can anyone say if the body shares mounting location with either the Xray or Yokomo?

You are lucky your LHS actually carries relevant stuff than stocking the shelf with all RTR stuff like the ones here. I would so get this car if it wasn't for... on-road racing is dead here, no one cares, corrupt officials that misuses land, etc, etc Just gonna sit here and drool over the build pics...

Right you are. Seems odd the way they tell you to install it, I can see air bubbles getting trapped.
