I have never met any one that likes the handling of an R9 body.

It has too much steering and makes the back end loose.

I have an LTC-R and I like it, but many people said it too has too much steering.

Most seem to go with the Mazdaspeed 6

Yeah, that R9 is rubbish. I had the same experience, unnaturally loose for no good reason.

Pretty sure my skills are low enough that I won't notice I am really curious to find out if I notice a difference although my setup is going to be very different on Sat with flying fox shaft, new rubber, motor, sways, new base setup. It is a "Bad" looking body though.

that will be the reason why you wont be able to drive it, it was probably on discount cos no one buys them, they are that bad

They're gettin' kinda tough to come by. I think AMain sold their last one a couple months ago. I was wanting to buy a second one but was too late to the punch. I still would like to have a second.

It has to be "driven" even more so than the ltc-r. It has unreal performance at mid speed but lacks a little low and high speed handling. It is very agile which is handy on tight tracks. It will work fine if you already have one but when you kill it swap out for a speed6 and life will be much easier, or get the ltc-r if you are handy with the wheel.

Yeah, that's not a trade-off I am willing to deal with in Modified. LTC-R
