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.

What will the benefit of the front diff be? Also the application? Asphalt or carpet?

A Front Diff will give you more front steering

I haven't said much since my early excitement regarding the MTC1 because I was delayed getting it on the track for various reasons but this thing is clearly awesome. First time on my local track last Friday with old tires and a recycled Dodge Dart body (I wasn't expecting good initial performance with all the concern over the chassis flex and initial setup), I could almost keep up to the top dogs. A multi time ROAR nation champ in an Awesomatix and a multi time Canadian National champ in an Associated (my best lap was 2 tenths off their best in the main). The car was a little hard to drive which slowed me down but if it's this good already... I'm pumped! This car is almost everything I hoped for (nothing is perfect). If I had to choose between my T4 and my MTC1, the MTC1 is my choice.

spare belts, arms, hubs, extra shims, front drive cups (go with the aluminum bladed ones) belt tensioner (not really needed tho) one piece top deck (depending on track), spur gears (kit doesnt come with one, order ones that are thin like Axon, thick spurs doesnt work with the car unless you file the top deck to clear the screws)

Other than those, the rest of the car is pretty much race ready.

Default Low-medium grip asphalt setup

Hi all,

Preparing for the outdoor season. What is it a good base setup for asphalt, low-medium grip and very large track (fast chicane and some slower corner)? I run modified. Thank you in advance!
