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.

Teach what is different between the 7075 and the fenix chassis dimension wise?

What about flex?

Just wondering. I have the 7075 and it’s great for me. Wondering if it’s worth trying the fenix as well.

GrandeGixxer, I used the 2 part top deck...the rear part was the Fenix alloy part and the front was the stock part.

Antimullet, the shape of the 2 chassis are different. The 7075.it is almost like the stock chassis with slight modifications. The Fenix chassis has a tapper to it, it's wider in the rear and gets narrower as you move to the front. Both have the cut outs along the side and the milled down sections where the motor is. I like the Fenix chassis better but have only had the 7075.it for 1 race day.

On rob p’s setup is he putting a 5mm shim on the rear upright and a 3mm on the front? Seems to be the way I read it.

So after another awesome night of racing with the MTC1 I find myself with a serious problem....I need more corner speed!!! When I look at video of my car vs other fast cars it looks as though my car does not transition from side to side fast enough. I'm thinking thicker sway bars might help but wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts??? Currently I'm running on black CRC carpet, super high bite. I'm running 600cst oil with 4 hole pistons with progressive 2.5 - 2.8 springs up front with 2.6 springs in the rear. What do you guys think...?

What diff oil are you using? What class are you running?

I was going to suggest to go thicker in the diff fluid but it already looks like you have done that. Lol

I am unsure of how much rear toe you have, but if you havenít already done so, try either 2.5 or 2 degrees of rear toe.

What positions are your turnbuckles on the steering knuckle?

You can always try more camber in the front if you havenít done so. That would be the easiest adjustment.

Hard to say without seeing the whole setup. Shocks may be a little thick


My car got better from:
narrowing the rear pins, but widening at the hex. About 186 mm rear

2.5 * rear toe

raised diffs

rear pins raised 0.5mm

raising the rear upper deck 1mm, but I use the split top deck, so this may not apply to you. Just stiffens the rear end of the car.

Also using
450 cst in all shocks, 2.5 Xray spring front 2.3 -2.6 xray rears or 2.5

Teach raise the roll centers all around. Car can go even softer on springs and sways than stock believe it or not and not roll too much through the turns. It also gets rid of grip roll to a large extent. I use a modified version of piechs setup on petite RC.
Very positive change.

I tried sway bars too before one of the guys mentioned rollcenters. Didn’t help.

Roll centers transform the car.

I just received the kit and put it together over the weekend. I am impressed by how well it all goes together and the high quality of the components!

I saw around page 43 of this thread, there was discussion of spur gear sizes. I'm going to run the car in USGT on an indoor grey carpet track. I put in a 96T spur and a 44T pinion to start with. For USGT, what are others running for spur gear?
