In order of preference for TC at my track:
1-R9-R
2-Mazdaspeed 6
3-Mazda 6

To be fair, I haven't used anything else
I want the LTC-R to try. I also love the look of the protoform shells. Now if only the old Nemesis came in 190mm.

Assuming you are talking about running rubber tire, just get the following:
Protoform Mazda6
Protoform MazdaSpeed6
Protoform LTC-R

And if you really have to have two more,
Protoform Dodge Stratus 3
Protoform R9-R

I wouldn't bother with anything else, have tried others and not found anything to match the quality and handling of these. Those 5 shells will have you sorted on ANY track.

I found a 190 mm Nemesis in a local store a while back and I'm still using it. It handles quite well in my opinion. I'd gladly pick another one up if I could find one.

I have a Mazda6 shell cut out and awaiting paint, 'nuf said...

I've had a dodge Stratus 3.0 and that was OK... But age and a few cosmetic "improvements" later, made sure I "needed" a Mazda 6...

As a sideline...

-1 for lightweight shells of any description. They're simply not durable enough to justify the weight savings.
