I had a fren who went Ti for everything available on the MTX and its way under-weight for IFMAR ruling..

I would think the Propecs MTX is just abt right on the weight.

1700g minimum weight.

Most Prospec Mugens are weighing in close to 1800g stock depending on the radio gear used.

What changes when you change to the A,B or C rear blocks. I am running in a spec class that we have to run rubber tires. Just wondering what would give me the most rear traction?

Minimum IFMAR weight is 1725 including transponder no fuel. Rule 5.9.

Thanks guys for minimum weight rule.

Here is another question: durability vs weight

I like my car to be bullet proof, so I start using longer Ti screws and find some ways to make my car stronger. The idea actually pay at bad crash and yet the car is able to continue racing. Even my buddy scratched his head after seeing the crash and my car is still running

Contradictorily, it costs me some weight, my car is close to 1900 grams !!! Does it affect the handling ? Or should I keep trying better setup for heavier car ?

Well that means you're lugging around 1/2 a Pound more on your car, which I'm sure means the handling/acceleration/braking of the car will change. How much, I don't know.

Trouble! I can't figure out what could be wrong. Under initial acceleration, my MTX3 bolts to the right. It is undrivable. I checked the belts thinking that could be it. All good. Then I noticed that my rear differential was "oily", like it had leaked. Could this be it? I am planning a rebuild of the rear dif. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

check shock lengths, droop & free suspension movement. rebuild shocks, unbolt sway bars and ensure the suspension drops on it's own without any help or force.

I had this problem before, check the brake pulley. It may not be tight causing the car to veer left or right. Your diff shouldn't be leaking though.
