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.

Maybe because the traction is too high that the rear would not rotate with softer springs.

The reason is the car is more stable incorner and has more rotation midcorner, as the ETS layout had a fast sweeper end of straight and some 180s.
Different shock oil to make the car easier due to high traction.

I have my club champions and the Canadian Nationals in March. I'll be running 17.5 at both and the competition will be fierce. I'm not one of the top guns so any success at all will cement this chassis as my TC of choice.

In my experience, the car out of the box has a lot of potential but needed a little help to make it truly great (at least on gray carpet). By reading this thread and also the Facebook group, I quickly learned the minor changes that could make the car great. Now this car is working extremely well for me. My guess is that others are probably also having the same experience. And probably why there isn't as much chatter. I still check in this thread fairly often because I'm always looking for any tips on improving!

To further apologize for my errors I'm also posting on this thread.

The MTC1 already has little to no dog bone plunge, that's again why it drives more naturally. So, I say now to tune roll centres with the upper arms and don't change the lower arm so the dog bone plunge can be as little as it can. If you feel an imbalance then tune using roll bar and springs.
