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.

The mi5evo/mi6 mini caster blocks look like they would be a perfect fit

Trying to put the new Robert Pietch setup on my car. Trying to put the stupid shims under the front inner uprights. I might not have any hair left by the time I get them in.

I stick them on a hex wrench then drop them all down onto the aluminum, Then carefully drop the upper mount onto them with the screws in it already.
Its like that annoying kids game operation.

Or you can just ca the darn washers lol...

I’ll try that. Not having enough of the Mugen ones, I’ve got some .5 mm ones that I’m using as well. That’s not helping my cause. I gave up for the night last night after I lost one in the carpet. Today is a new day and I’ll find it and get it put back together.

I found it's easier to put the rear screw in the mount with the shims, start the screw into the bulkhead, then add the front screw and swing the front screw into alignment with the shims on it. Of course, the outer ball should be off of the steering knuckle.

BTW started with the Dankel setup, which is pretty close to Pietsch 's, in USGT last weekend. I went to high diffs, 10K in the rear diff and .5mm spacer behind the front arm for caster. Reduced the droop a little as well. The car was really good, but still not as fast as the fast Awesomatix guys at my track. Moving in the right direction, though.

I just installed it on my car. They notched the back side of the tower so it keys into the bulkhead and provides JUST enough clearance so that the shock tower barely clears the screws on the bulkhead. I havent tested it on the track yet, but just flexing the tower its feels stiffer than the stock one for sure.

I noticed that the stock tower is very flexible. Maybe too much compared with other brands.
