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.

Not yet. The kit diff has a different off set Front and rear.

Regarding the screws. I used some x-ray ones and they are indeed smaller. Will see how it works.

Fingers crossed. I hope someone does a screw kit in the same blue as the Mugen is in, would look really cool I think

Is it normal that the front camber set pin is very difficult to turn
I nearly broke one of my drivers trying to change it.

Answering myself here. I completely undid them and fastened them again. They are now moving a lot easier.

Well to report back on the screws, I found 2 screws in my tool box with lower profile heads and it seem to do the trick, I dont see anymore belt residual on the heads.

Another problem came up tho. Since I bought the single piece top deck, I thought i'll give it a try and see how that affects handling. Handling was quite a handful. The rear end kept stepping out and became quite a handful to drive. I put the 2 piece top deck back on to see if that solved the problem but the same thing happened. The car handled like it was on rails last week and I didnt make any other changes. I put on a new set of tires and that helped somewhat but still no where near like last week.

While playing around with the cars, I noticed the rear diff was really stiff. I used 10k oil but it felt like it had 100k in it. I took it apart to check on the condition of the oil and noticed the gears were severely worn and the oil had a bunch of plastic filings on it. The diff was extremely notchy and didnt run smooth at all. Im not sure why or how that happened seeing my other cars running similar 13.5T boosted setup have their diff last 6+ months without a service. I think I have around 24 packs of run time through the car and the diff pretty much destroyed itself.

I am sorry to hear that. At least the replacement parts are not that expensive. Nevertheless I wonder why this happened in the first place. Are all gears worn out?

Default this much I can say...

Haven't driven it yet, but it terms of fit, finish and materials quality?

No manufacturer at the present time, has anything on the MTC1.

Mine is great. After 2 race days, my oil is clear and gears look great.
