Ron I'm not the only one that has stated that carbs make more power than a hat. BG tech support also made that same statement on another thread on THIS board last week. So don't take my word for it! Those guys are the Professionals so I'd believe them first. Of course you could call Kevin Simpson ( former Sonny's dyno guy) and he'll tell you the same thing.

And I promise, I won't tell you "I told you so" either! If the time slips prove it then I won't have to say ANYTHING! O:)

Speaking of "chumps", I don't think I made it past 3rd round but once all year! O:) But hey, I will still be racing the SAME car next season, which is something I haven't done in a while! =; I've been in a different car the past three years running, which Rick reminded me of when I was crying about not going rounds earlier this year. He really knows how to hurt a guy. I guess down side of it all is that I'll have a completely different engine? O:)

At least I won't have to rework the car in the process of shaking down that new engine though.

Friday, pit bitch and I are going to put the 4link back where it was when I bought the car. I'm convinced that the IC needs to go out and up a little to keep the front end down with more power. It worked OK with the junk engine but with somewhere near 300 more HP on tap I can see problems with it like it is. The wheelie bars will be back on next year also.

I'm shooting for some shake down runs about mid March, or sooner if weather permits. Piedmont Dragway is open in the winter if temps are above 45* and no falling weather so it might be possible to get some passes on it before then.

We shall see!

LOL, I do the same thing only I don't take the car cover off, that way the gas fumes inside help make it more realistic!
