precise steering input and response for the most consistent laps times
Carvers in new condition excel on low traction surfaces as well as high
“loamy” traction and wet surfaces where no rubber has been taken into
the racing surface. Worn Carvers excel on indoor or outdoor clay tracks
where a light blue groove has formed.
