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.

So do we want the motor to be positioned in the middle of it's adjustment range, or further back or further forward - from a weight distribution aspect?

Tight indoor Ozite 17.5 in my case.

I'm initially shooting for middle just to be able to go up or down based on temps. The 92 should put mine a little closer to the back.

Several great build reviews of this car that seem to alleviate most concerns potential buyers might have. I should have mine from the LHS this Friday.

Motiv says 3.9 to 4.1 FDR with a fan.

Cool, I'm there! Just pop in the 96 to start! Thanks David.

96/39 to 96/42, 43 puts it at 3.8. I do have pinions lower than 39, just not the nice Axon ones.

Those Axon spurs look really good so I'm gonna get a handful for my ever growing fleet - looks like they fit on everything which is awesome.

Has anyone had problems with the belt tensioner rubbing on the spur gear? I had to remove it to get a 92 tooth to fit.
