Didn't see any mention of it here, but I see SC Carvers are available on JC's website now. Already ordered me a pair!

Carvers – green compound
Part # – 3050-02
(fits front SCT 3.0" x 2.2" wheel)



JConcepts is assisting in making Short Course Trucks easier to drive. For the first several years of Short Course racing, the only option for tuning front tires on 2wd SCT trucks has been to use a rear tire. JConcepts is the first to introduce the Carvers directional ribbed front tire to Short Course Racing. The advantage of the Carvers tire is the ability to tune steering response by utilizing a radial rib to present the tire compounds to the racing surface. Typically, ribbed tires net a less aggressive and more predictable front end response which can ultimately deliver faster and more consistent races. With the 2.2” x 3.0” design, the large sidewall retains the realism of the class while providing an additional tuning option.

The Carvers front tire is perfect for a variety of track surfaces. The sharp angular and directional ribs provide the ultimate in control and direction on the most common dry and wet condition surfaces. The compact tire body combined with the JConcepts firm profiled inserts allow for precise steering input and response for the most consistent laps times available.

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.

Features:

* Available in Super Soft (Green), and Soon - Soft (Blue), Indoor Soft (Gold) compounds.
* Compact tire body
* Sharp angular and directional ribs with precise separation
* Includes firm profiled “closed cell” inserts

Getting some new JC SC barcodes. I like the new closed cell foams but what about the air gap between teh 2.2 side wall and the foam that is not filled anymore??? Most other companies fill in this area with some rubber mesh. Nothing to support the side wall. Anyone have expereince with this new configuration. I like the old molded foams with the finger design or AKA, HB, Proline with the rubber in this area.

The new Carvers are dialed. I ran them at the Clash and they were good.

"For the first several years of Short Course racing"

Embellishing a little are we? Short course racing hasn't yet finished it's 3rd year. The Slash was released around May of 2008.
