Carbon Revolution’s Carbon Fiber Wheel Test: Faster at the Track?
09 January 2018
Turnology.com recently compared Carbon Revolution CR9 carbon fiber wheels to a set of Advan Racing GT wheels. They were fitted to a 2014 Nissan GTR and tested by an experienced driver at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway.
You can read the full report by clicking on the story below but here are the driver’s impressions:
“You really notice the difference under load. On acceleration the car seems to pick up speed a bit quicker. On initial turn-in, the car wants to bite in more and it feel like it wants to stay tucked in versus pushing to the outside. It feels very planted and changes direction a lot easier. It is very impressive how much of a difference it makes… and two seconds in the same car, is a pretty big difference for just a set of wheels and only 8 pounds in weight (total weight loss).”
