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.

I just wanted to speed up development of this car using your feedback, it's a fine machine and Mugen is one of the brands that deserves all the help I can give.
Nope, no other changes made when changing the Rear RC height. My personal thoughts are their are other factors at play that aren't allowing the geometry to go higher. I have parts in the works to test these theories out.

Having said that, car is still very good. I haven't been any slower with it vs the orange machine, which is a good sign.

I really hope Mugen makes more on-road cars - I mean they might as well at least make an F1 since nearly every event runs F1 these days. I'd love to see Robert Pietsch's take on an F1. MTC1 drivers need more Mugen's

I'm considering picking up one of these chassis and wondering what optional or spare parts are needed? The track surfaces will vary from asphalt to carpet. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Having literally just made the move myself... not a lot! Haven't broken anything yet in my two runouts, and the usual suspect components seem to be holding up well. I just carry the usual spares (arms, hubs, blades).

Tuning parts wise, the car is pretty well optioned. Main parts I would grab is the steel spool cups (as these will hold up far better than the plastic kit ones, and can use blades), and the one-piece top deck.
I also grabbed an extra diff and set of shocks, and some option roll bars, but that more personal tuning preferences than anything else.

That's about it really. It's certainly up there in terms of quality etc.

The car is great , just like you showed & guided me through the D07 & D08 , you have to find the setup that works for you!!

P.S. I'm faster with this car

The new Mugen aluminum chassis for the car is awesome. The car is dialed in high bite carpet now. You won't have any issues.

For me the original Mugen Alu-Chassis in combination with fenix alu topdeck works awesome. Could archive A Main at last weekends ETS Rnd2, car has a lot of corner speed and easy to drive. If you have a slower/smaller track also the original Mugen 1piece carbon topdeck works good.
