We have a few drivers who have compared them on carpet. Reports are they drive identically.

Both bodies feature more grip and steering on entry than the ltc.

I think both will be great on asphalt or lower grip carpet ... But could be to "stuck" on high grip carpet

IS-200 now is stock at AwesomatixUSA. The body is going in for ROAR approval on Monday. Hopefully mother nature will let it to be tested outside this weekend!

To me, the IS-200 drove very similar, but with improved middle/exit rotation than the LTC-R. So if your a driver that enjoys the entry aggressiveness of an LTC-R on carpet, then the IS-200 is going to be a body you'll at least want to try.

Myself, I prefer the Speed6/Nazda2 balanced feel on mid/high grip -- but again prefer the middle/exit rotation on the Nazda2.

Nazda4 feels someone like an LTC-R

We did some extensive testing w/ the Nazda4 at Mile High Champs and found that it really depends upon the layout. The Nazda4 has extreme high speed steering so if your layouts have a lot of full or near full throttle turning sections then it will be a great body.

Alternatively, when you have a lot of tight low speed corners nothing seems to match the Nazda2 corner rotation. In fact we had 6 of 10 A-main drivers in 17.5 TC at Mile High Champs --- not to mention it won the 2016 ROAR Carpet National Championship in 17.5 and 13.5 TC the month prior.
