Well they shut down all the tracks we go to due to temps in the 100's. We needed to get Jake a couple of runs before going to the NMCA/NMRA Super Bowl race in Joliet. It may work out better have in a month off. :-k

So we unloaded the car and took the plate off, put the spare tires in the back seat area. (I love wagons. =;) Preloaded the trailer, and greased the trailer hubs. The rest gets done Thursday and we roll that night and get there about 3-4 in the morning and wait for the gates to open at 8.

If any of you mid west guys are interested come check us out. http://www.nmcadigital.com/2012_event_s ... l_preview/

They closed the local track here also on Saturday but I didn't plan on going anyway as I was doing some tuning..But on a good note I got it figured out so hope Sunday it's not as hot so I can do some testing =;

It won't take much faster to be in the 7's, I'm with Steve, I think this will put you in there once you get the tune-up sorted out.

Enjoy the process. =;

Long process in getting the idle right and a lot of thinking that causes a very large head ache!!!!!!!!!!!! Along with worn out threads on the studs that hole the carb on... :- But then again I could pull that carb off and back on in the blink of an eye \:D/

Just to be clear on this. Do you mean you have a very large head that aches or a very large ache in your head? Cause you know it can go either way.

OK to clear that up. It was a very large ache in my head..If you ever get into this carb tuning thing Chuck you may see what I mean...It's kind of if you change this it affects that so you adjust that and if affects the other thing so now you have to back and this again to help that other thing but you don't want to go to far because then your back to trying to make that work as good as it was before but now the other thing don't work at all because :-# .........You get what Im talking about now [-( We need one of them characters with a carb under that hammer :-
