Default carb guys in.

i got a 460 with a tunnel ram with 2 600 holleys that are vacuum secondaries.When i launch off the foot brake the car stumbles bad and doesnt go.no black smoke like a rich cond.but the about 100 feet out the car just takes off like a train all the way threw the traps.mph is 128 and car runs 11.80s.with a 2.033 60 foot.I allready changed the sec springs up and down the color chart with no change.still feels like a lean stumble.What should i try next?

What size nozzle, what color pump cam and which hole is in in now....1or2?
Did the spring swap make any difference at what RPM "it came on"?
It's most likely a lean stumble as it didn't go rich.
More info on the car such as weight, gear and tranny please.

go bigger on the squirter nozzle, also take a piece of tubing and connect the vents and put a hole in the center of the hose on the top. the angel on launch would slosh the fuel in the boals and then the engine would suck that fuel down. old setup i had with 2 600 vacuume secondaries that was my problems ,

Is the timing locked ? Trans brake or foot brake? Need full advance on launch & more launch rpm than a single carb , also I like double pumpers much better for a TR. My little pump gas 466 pulls low 1.30s to high 1.20s w/2 800dp carbs foot braking.

Double pumpers would go a long way to solving the stumble IMO. You've got a lot of compression, maybe a set of 750 pumpers.

Have you connected the vent tubes with a piece of rubber fuel line?

Your carbs go front to back but connect the vent tubes like this if you haven't already:
