Default Good 190mm 1/10th TC Bodies

I was hoping some users could post up some of there recommended bodies for a HB TCX. I am new to on road and unsure what I am exactly looking for in bodies for Touring Cars.

Thanks

Protoform LTC-R seems to be the most popular at the moment.

What are your opinions on the lightweight versions of bodies. Since the price is not much more, should I get lightweight version instead of the standard. I would assume the lightweight would offer better performance, but durability would decrease a bit.

Lightweight is more nimble, faster transition. But softer so everything related to that comes into play.

Mazda Speed 6 is excellent as is the P37R, LTC-R is too. I'd suggest trying all three.

Assuming you mean for rubber tire on carpet, either the LTC-R or Mazdaspeed 6 have been the most popular for the last couple of years. The Parma RTB is pretty close to the Mazdaspeed 6 as well. The lightweight bodies give a little better performance, at the price of lower durability and increased chances for body tucks.

It is worth mentioning that some big races (like the upcoming Indoor Champs) don't allow lightweight bodies in TC.

I think that the R9-R was way too twitchy. The LTC-R, Mazdaspeed 6, and RTB were much more stable and easy to drive.

Never tried a foam body with rubber tires. I would suspect they would be twitchy as well since they were designed for tires with more traction than rubber.
