The R9 was the worse body every produced IMO. I feel I'm owed 2 bodies after I wasted time and money painting them Go with the LTCR or a Speed 6 and call it a day.

The R9 is a great body... the chassis just needs to be tuned differently to use it...

Lots of guys at my track are running the R9. Seems to be working rather well for them. Like anything else, body is just another tuning tool in the entire set up of the car.

For the chassis underneath to the bulk head I used M3X8 instead of the M3X5, but some 8's didnt fit, because of inconsistant depths of the treaded holes.
I had a bulkhead that wasn't threaded properly during manufacturing, and I called the customer service number listed in the manual, and AE sent me a new one.

Thanks everyone for the help in body shells. I think I might give the speed 6 ago.

I use some cnc cut 10mm tool to put inside bearing more,

- outside is 5x10x3,
- inside is 5x10x4,
- hex is from yokomo: bd-011c (5mm) or nr graupner: YBD.011C,
- spec-r bd5 double joint axle

Need some work on c-hub to fit it, and I will squeeze tc6 diff, it is a little slop,
or put Y bd5 gear diff to front with 100k oil

Anyway, works, from slow rpms to high without big shaking

Also I wait very long time for ae factory to do own axle ...

Good Luck with the Spec-R axles. We tried them in the Yokomo BD5 (All in Modified) but they didn't last long. They kept braking at the Joint.

We tend to only use the R9 in the wet here in the UK

The real secret is to pick up 2 or 3 bodies, as it is the quickest tuning aid (ie less then 10 seconds to change the body) and it makes an unbelievable difference in handling. It will take a couple of laps to adjust to the difference in the body. Like JRS_chris suggests maybe the R9 gives you a ton of front bit that you need in the rain to make your standard setup just work.

That IS a great idea... but the reason most dislike the R9 body is because they did just that. They drop the shell on with their current setup for the previous body, make a few tweaks, cant seem to tame its immense amount of steering, and out comes the critiques.

While todays TC's DO have a lot of steering, there is something to be said for greater downforce in almost any racing situation. Using an R9 in the wet is a great example of that. I use it because our local track has less grip than most. But i would likely shy away from using it at a big event that has high grip, like the Snowbirds... because the body DOES require more wrench time to find a setup that works for your particular chassis.

Im just saying dont shy away from the R9. A lot of people hated the Mazda 6 body when it first came out because it had so much steering. It went on to become a staple in TC racing for years.

I prefer the LTC-R over the Speed6, for both my TC5 and TC6. It just seems to suit my driving better, plus I found the LTC-R just seems to sit better on the car compard to the Speed6.
