Everything looked good until the car got out far enough to shift into high gear. It decided to nose over & lose power. I lifted & coasted. I was puzzled. I drove it back to the pit area & started looking things over. I cleaned the fuel filter & raised the floats in the carburetor a little & headed back up to try again but wound up with the same results.
So what to do next??? Yep, I tore it all apart. It had to be a fuel delivery problem. I checked everything possible. I even took the fuel pump apart. I still found nothing . I had nothing left to lose so i tried it again but i tamed down the launch & the shift rpm to see if it might change the way it went down the track & see what was causing it. It ran like a champ! A little slow because of the short launch & low rpm shift but still felt good.
I made one final pass to make sure life was good with everything where it should be & it went a 6.55 @ 103 mph in the 1/8 mile. Perfect!
Not a bad day overall. It was beautiful out & a perfect day for racing. I did have to work on things but when it’s warm & sunny it’s not so bad. I am glad I got some bugs worked out & things seem ready for next weekend @ Summit Motorsports Park. I was also happy I got to visit with some friends not seen since last fall. I can’t wait for some real racing!
