What would a good choice be... P37-R, Speed6, LTCR, R9-R
MazdaSpeed 6 is the default choice for carpet. Good balance, and good stability. The LTC-R also works for some people, but it's definitely more aggressive, and will depend on your driving style. Personally, I found the best overall setup and consistently fast laps using the Speed 6. The LTC-R could rotate really, really well around the hairpins, but I made more mistakes with it. I had to add 0.5* front camber and lower the inside of my front links 0.5mm to get the front end bite with the Speed 6, compared to what I had been getting with the LTC-R.
Most people seem to think the R9-R is just way too aggressive, but I've never tried it, personally.
I've tried the P37, but haven't done a proper back-to-back test with the Speed 6 or LTC-R. The car wasn't working well, and neither was I, last time I tried it. Most of the fast guys in my area say it just sucks at everything.
