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.

Speedworld has been revamped and I was out there last weekend and man it looks fun and the crowd of guys out there were awesome to be around. Right now its looking to be between the Mugen and Yokomo for me. My right hand man at SWR runs a Mugen so the MTC1 has a slight edge FYI......there will NEVER be another dress involved. I learn a harsh lesson that day that still haunts me 12 years later

Default Just Curious....

I just noticed that the MTC1 uses a single middle spur gear pulley. What keeps the belts from rubbing against each other?

Also, does Mugen offer aluminum diff pulleys?

Thanks guys.

Nothing stops them rubbing, but hasn't been a problem for me. Had one rear belt fail in 3months of running mod, and they look fine.
And no to alloy diff pulleys, only the centre pulley is offered in alloy, and TBH I'm not sure it's needs as it's around 3g heavier than the standard parts.

Anyone having trouble with the S5 diff O-rings swelling up? I tired a new set of Mugen O-rings with grease and they still keeping swelling up. I am using only Mugen diff oils, and filling between 1.2g - 1.5 grams.

Any other brand O-rings that might be better?

xray has a oring that fits and doesnít bind. Found this out on my first diff. Second diff I used stock Orings but wet sanded washers to remove sharp burr on the one side. Only used oil to lube the oring no grease. Itís pretty smooth. 7k in first diff and 5k in second backup diff.

Slow...

Depending on your maintenance routine... You'll find that pretty much every o-ring swells. The Mugen silicon is very nice throughout the car. I normally replace my diff and shock o-rings at least once a month to keep the car consistent. I use AE Green Slime during assembly. I've also used flourinated lubes to mitigate the swelling but it is only a marginal improvement.

Silicone does not really like silicone or petroleum based oils.. and there's not really much of a way around that. Using a good grease when you install the o-rings can help reduce the swelling.

Good luck!

In a pinch (donít ask) you can actually boil swelled orings for about 5 minutes and itíll shrink them enough to get you by until fresh ones arrive.

The only places I've found those mounts are Tonisports which stopped carrying them and KleinKram in Germany..

You can make your own... just grab some 3mm Aluminium standoffs (I use 15mm), and then mount them where the tape mount parts go on the brackets. Then use some small carbon plates on top to act as the retainers.
I also space the L shape brackets up 2mm off the chassis, and then extra shims between post and bracket to get the correct battery float.

3mm Alu Standoffs

I have these on both my cars, so much easier than tape
