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.

Ive always wondered why my belts are getting frayed. I thought its because I didnt trim enough of the servo ear and its rubbing against that when the car is running and the belt is jumping around. But while installing the upper deck, I noticed 2 screws have an excessive about of black dust on them. Upon closer look I realized the belts is actually rubbing against the screw heads. You can see the limited clearance the belt and the screw has


looking into either grinding down the screw head, or use set screws to limit the side to side movement when the chassis twists...

Looks like a good spot for countersunk flat heads.

My thoughts at first, but was suggested that unless the counter sink holes are perfectly aligned, it will induce some tweak. how much of a difference would it make Im not sure but Im not too worried about it

I gotta find a way of countersinking CF without totally destroying my bit after 1 hole

True, just use countersunk washers.

Just to make sure I got this right.

Flathead + countersunk washers so you do not have to chamfer (is this the correct english word?) the hole. Would not this be as high as the heads which are in right now?

and I doubt that you can fit two of these washers next to each other.

Have you tried a different screw, some have flatter profiles, the Xray ones are quite low?

Not yet, I'll check out my screw box this weekend and see if I could find something suitable

Perhaps this:

plus this:

Will get rid of the crown of the fastener that is annoying your belts.

As some of you already mentioned, out of the box the car has too much flex.
It already flips over and had too much steering.

Anyhow, compared to T4'17 I drove the same lap time, even with that much flex.
Still waiting for the optional upper deck, and I hope that with the less flex, it's easier to drive with less steering.

In case some of you need that information:

Xray springs match and I assembled the progressive one 2.5-2.8 in front and 2.6 rear.
As I'm also waiting for Mugen's Anti Roll Bar and therefore I mounted them from Xray. They do not match 100%, but it's good working.

In case someone has already a hint to decrease the flex with the original upper deck, let me know. thanks

I think the head on these screws will be too large in diameter... Can't be installed. I hear that Awesomatix upper deck screws might work though.

Or trim down the head with dremel might work.
