The LTC works very well rubber on carpet. In med to high traction it may have a little better rotation than the Mazda speed 6.

It sits between the Speed 6 and the R9R. The R9R is super aggressive and twitchy where the Speed 6 is very stable, but still corners, with a slight push. The LTC-R has a great downforce and has plenty of steering while still being very predictable.

A few of our local racers were using the LTC with a J Concepts TC wing and were having great results with it.

Does the LTC has more steer than the Mazda 6 and mazda speed 6?
I'm looking for a good car body and this moment I like the R9-R.
But I want to try the LTC-R.
Th R9 has a lot of steer.

The LTC-r seems to be between the R9R and the speed 6 as far as steering goes. I was running the R9R, but I have now moved to the LTC-r and I really like the change.

The LTC and R9 are my two favorite bodies to use currently. I like to use the LTC if the track is large and has a lot of high speed sections. It stays planted on long sweepers but still has enough steering to pull the car in tight running at top speed. For smaller technical tracks I prefer the R9 because it rotates so well. Since you like the R9, you will defiantly like the LTC I have 2 of each ready to go at all times hehe

On carpet I prefer the R9 because It has a little more steering in it. But I think the LTC is more forgiving.

Ok Thanks.
Than I will keep the R9 for indoor. here I went great with the R9.
The R9 on my home track was a bit nerves but still fast. The LTC will be better here as it is more stable.

I ran the LTC-R on carpet with in the spring. Better steering than the Mazda or DNA bodies but sacrifices some stability when in side by side collisions. I'm trying out the R9R body right now. I like the R9 but it is upset very easily in tight traffic. I'll be going back to the LTC body when they get them back in stock.

I've found the R9R to work well on carpet if it's mounted a little towards the rear with the wing pushed back. Also found the LTC-R can be made to respond nearly as aggressively as the R9R or as neutral as the Speed 6 depending on mounting and wing position.
