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.

careful with aftermarket belts, Probably not this specific one, but ive heard people saying some aftermarket white belts are thicker than stock and it pinches between the pulley and the bearing.

Is there any tips or new setups for asphalt; like we are seeing with the latest carpet setups?

I really like that Robert and the team are strait forward with what is working best!

Those carpet changes made a world of difference for me.

I am switching my car back to Asphalt and curious of any new setup changes.

No problem with these, got them on both of my cars with no issues(other than a little break-in). A couple of packs for practice and good-to-go.👍

That looks nice, I知 still deciding because the locals have yokomo or x Ray.(no local parts support) but all the off road mugens I致e had broke very rarely.

I知 still trying to decide but I知 pretty sure it will be a used tc. Although I will love a new kit I just can稚 afford it
