Protoform LTC-R, hands down is one of the best.

I really like the LTC-R body too. Mazdaspeed6 is also very good. Almost everyone I've met races in TC classes with one of these two bodies. Rarely anything else. It might just be in my mind, but I think the LTC-R transitions a bit quicker than the speed 6.

It depends on the track you are racing. Are you racing foam tires or rubber tires? Are you running carpet or asphalt?

The LTC-R works very well for outdoor rubber tire racing. +1

Rubber carpet racing...I am leaning towards the R9-R protoform body..Just because i think it looks alot better than some of the other ones...Maybe its just me, but i think alot of these tourning car body aren't very sleek. they all look pretty good from the front, but the rear of alot of them just dont look right.

I have the R9-R and it is beautiful. From what I have read it's aerodynamics have not been the most popular so most people stay away. Other than that, it does look nice.

If you want a car that looks nice, get a Tamiya body.

Thats actually backwards....

In general if you want one good body go with the Protoform Mazdaspeed 6. It will work and be fast anywhere. The LTC-R is also a very fast.

The R9-R seems to have more front downforce, which makes the car twitchy. The LTC-R and Mazdaspeed 6 are better balanced.
