I wouldn't get the new Carve. I tried it and it is definitely not what you're looking for. Going from an Stype you would probably find the Carve boring. I have a Futura 93l Wood 2009 which I absolutely love. Fast, jibes really well, light, etc. If you want freerace, go for the Futura. I tried the 2010 XCite rides and it was definitely nicer than the Carve (which I only tried in Tufskin).
