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.

Its not that hard really. The hardest part is get the hole started since your trying to drill into a round object. I just took a sharp body reamer to start the hole first like a center punch then used a 2mm bit to drill the hole

If you feel the stock bumper is too soft you can use VBC hard bumper it's a direct fit.

Google. Search " mugen MTC1 manual" It's like it knows what you're looking for.

Hi Aaron,

The tooth count that fits now sits in the wiki on top of each gear chart. The updated gear chart also is color coded for what fits (Nice update). This was a huge problem for me with as many helpful answers you appear to be getting. For some reason people get gear chart stuck in their head and assume that because it's in the chart the gears actually fit the car. I'm running a 21.5 with a 96 spur and 40 Pinion, 1.7 internal ratio for a 4.08 in my initial setup. If your track considers 17.5 stock, I'd probably try a 100 tooth.

Didnít state anywhere manual or otherwise about the actual physical gear it came with. Which is why I asked professor genius.

Itís like you ASSumed you knew what you were talking about without actually looking.
