Nice job Mark and congrats again.

I'll bet that you're probably the only one that does that. I know I don't. ;-)

It's been like that since we had different COTMs. I just never bothered changing it.

Just never got around to putting them in, and not a big deal on the dyno. And thanks everyone, it was a lot of fun. And thanks again to Ken for putting it up. It wouldn't have happened without stuff I learned from this site.

That would be thanks to Faye for putting it up. Ken only wrote the text. ;-)

And yeah, Mark sent me a return PM the other day when I was requesting a larger pic for the home page and he stated then that it basically all started here. Just a shame that Maley isn't a contributing member any more as it was his 2 circuit conversion that got some of us interested in building our own carbs. It's also interesting to note though that some have gone on to the "next level", which is where Mark, Bruce (nomad) and a few others have gone with help from shrinker.

In the end though it's all about racers helping other racers learn to do their own stuff, and THAT is what MSV is all about. \:D/

Oh, hey jmark, did you happen melt the headers off that engine with that junkie 2 circuit carb? O:) :-({|= =; If memory serves, a couple of years back there was a "pro" carb builder that stated this would happen on the return road, hey? I know they do some part throttle runups before a pull so I was just wondering if there were any headers left when you got done. Image \:D/

Saw this on some other message board once: "I don't need to know anything about carbs. We buy all our carbs from Flim Flam Fuel Systems."

I'm sure the author was trying to say that he was such an important racer he didn't lower himself to work on his stuff. The rest off us poor dummies have to work on our own parts.

Then that means he's got the same sheite that every other customer has? And when it comes time to tune it, I guess he's on his cell phone trying to get help? :- ;-)

Not sure he's tuning it, Ken. When it doesn't work right he flames Flim Flam Fuel Systems on the interweb and goes and buys one from Gypsy Carbs. All the while writing checks to each.

We dummies on the other hand ask questions, do research, and test to make junk work in ways that would make a few interweb know it alls puke.
