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.

It did take a bit of time measuring the car up. I knew something wasnít quite right with the car and had to do it for piece of mind. Generally, once I find a good base set up at my local, All the cars Iíve owned accept for the awesomatix, have similar roll centers and camber gain.

My roll centers are around high 6ís at the front and low 6ís in the rear.

Seems better, can the car run close to zero on the front or rear?

Matt,

Would you mind posting a crew chief setup sheet for another car of yours where you feel the suspension numbers are correct, I would like to compare the two cars numbers against each other. Thanks!

I got the message from MSR that it would be about 3 weeks on the 19th. So hopefully this week they will have the aluminum chassis and 1 piece top deck!

My roll centers are around high 6’s at the front and low 6’s in the rear.
Matt thanks for your research into the roll centers.

I raised mine front and rear and the car is a lot better. Able to run a much softer spring package on crc black high grip without excessive roll.

Going to go Aluminum with the chassis and try that next.

I've had that in the past and you need to email them and you can setup the order manually. You do need to contact them as they won't contact you.

I gave up on RCM to be honest as their shipping charges are absolutely extortionate.

I have ordered from them in the past and get a bit annoyed that the value of the shipping as displayed on the package is a fraction of what they actually charge you. Notwithstanding the packaging materials the shipping fee is way over the top. I'm sure they'd do far more business if they made the shipping charges sensible.

My one order hat I placed with them got lost in shipping. Never arrived in the US. They wanted to only refund me I think what the shipping costs were. Luckily I had paid through PayPal and I had to file a claim. Oh ya, this whole evolution carried on for over a month.
