the ltcr gives you more steering, and is more agressive in the corners than the speed6

WHich is why I use the Speed 6.

I ran the LTC-R for ages (I still use it on asphalt) but as soon as I went to the Mazda Speed 6 the car was easier to drive which meant I was faster.
One thing you don't usually need on carpet is more aggressive steering.

Some general advices can be made but as with 90% of things with this sport, the best thing is to see what the others at your track run. I run a PF Mazda 6 and a Audi A5 on the two tracks I run on, both on asphalt though
