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.

OK guys I really need your help, I am having major steering issues with my MTC1.

Im using a R1 servo with Xray servo saver.

Issue: Cannot get car to track straight, the car does not steer consistently and the car always push to the right and not the left.

I have mechanically properly adjust my steering rack.
I have made sure my steering rack does not bind.
I did check the servo to see if it was stripped.
I have checked the car for tweek
I have checked the drivetrain to see if it was bound.

I am running on black carpet, tight track

I need your wisdom thanks guys

Check that the servo mounting screws haven't come loose. Also check that your endpoints are set evenly

I have seen where you can mount the servo plate to the chassis to take some flex ,I also added this little straps to it now it has very little flex. Will try it out this weekend.
