Default Protoform R9-R Bodyshell

How have people got on with these? Running a mazda speed 6 at the moment. Looking for something with rubber tyres on carpet.

Thoughts will be good.

I don't see any of these at my track or in bigger races, the most common is the LTC-R.

The LTC-R should give you more steering than the Mazda Speed 6. You could also try the P37 which I felt was between the Mazda and the LTC-R.

I have been running the R9-R for awhile now. It has alot of downforce on the nose, and can make the car loose in a sweeping corner. Its a great body if you run on a small tight track. Works great for the agressive, hard into the corner driver.

I recently ran the LTC body, and its nice as well. Probably the safer bet.

I honestly don't see many of those around either. I have not tried one myself, so I don't know the handling characteristics.
